Comments Lots of lionfish & one of crew speared 5-10 each day. Crew was very helpful and friendly frequently offering any help needed, and tanks always filled between 3100 & 3200 with nitrox between 31.5 & 33.5. Boat was clean, well cared for, and comfortable. Lost one night dive on Thursday in order to move the boat from Lighthouse to near Turneffe. Reservations staff was very helpful. Dancer Fleet was offering a $700 discount on the regular fare, and I got another $150 based on age. Flight from Denver by was of Atlanta including Belize departure tax was only $386.00.
