Comments 5th trip to this destination with Peter Hughes. Great easy diving as always. New schedule did 5 dives on 3 dive sites per day instead of previous trips with only 2 sites per day. I liked the 3 sites per day better. Fish life & diving service the same as before, always left me wanting to return.
Included some new sites off Long Caye with an intersting profile - top of reef was only about 20 feet (no hang bar here) with a vertical wall. Top of reef on other sites on Half Moon were deeper, around 40 feet. Boat had some minor upgrades since our last trip: improved seating on the deck outside the dining lounge, new carpet & big flat screen tv & XM satelite radio in dining lounge, dvd player & flat screen in our room, new carpet, hammocks & loungers on the upper deck. Even more copies (3 recent sets?) of the Humann fish books available on board.
Only 10 divers on this trip (9 crew) but almost everybody had digital cameras. No dSLRs, mostly low end point & shoots. This matches the trend i have noticed over the past couple of years.
