Comments Iím not a normal cruise ship diver and booked my own diving. Fantasea had a well run boat, great dive masters, rinse tank for camera. Had ten divers on board. Was greatly disappointed to come to Bermuda and be taken to a purposely sunk ferry boat a few years old. Seriously? In Bermuda? Had several on board that had 7-10 lifetime dives so think this was the reason . Wish I had been notified as I would have changed times/days to go on a real wreck dive. Ferry was at 60 feet and all hatches off so could swim through and around. Very silty that day. No fish at all. Second dive was called Blue Hole which was more interesting. Was a circular reef where after going through a nice long swim through spit you out in the middle which was white sand. Reef was in great shape with lots of brain coral, corals, fans. No bleaching but no fish again. Very strange although was told is due to widely varying water temps throughout the year. Just find out before diving where they are going as again i expected one of the fantastic wrecks not a sunken ferry. Anyway any day diving is still better than no diving
