Comments Not any really bad. Would have liked more Pelagics.
As for the good, the boat is outstanding, large, comfortable rooms with lots of storage space. Excellent diving set up.

Walls and coral are super healthy and beautiful..Dive sites just a mile apart can be distinctly different as to number of fish, sizes etc.

Saw sharks, leopard rays, morays, lobsters, big groupers, schools of Horse Eyed Jacks, Tarpon, large Barracuda,large crabs,large spiny puffers.

Interesting navigation problem. Boat swings 270 degrees while at anchor and so when you get back to your starting point on a dive, the boat usually isn't there. A bit disconcerting at first, but bye and bye she comes swinging into view. Then,it's best to go for the safety bar while the boat is still heading your way, or use a lot of air trying to catch her if you let her drift by.
