Comments Diving is superb. Octopus, eels, war bonnets, Irish Lords, nudibranche, sponges, corals huge and plentiful white plumose. The walls are plastered with life. Took up photography so that I could identify what I was seeing.
Bill and Annie, the hosts, give individual attention to each guests.
My roommate had a cold and Annie brought ginger tea to her room for her.
Food is excellent . Had fresh halibut one night. Always lots of snacks on the the boat, even on one dive boat trips. And always well presented.
Bill and Annie, make you feel that they want you to have the greatest time of your life.
The boat is roomy, has inside seating and a head.
Best of all it has a lift to bring you onto the boat.
The entry is a giant stride.
This is cold water diving with current, requires you to dive on slack tide so go with someone knowledgeable of the tides.
Bill was right on with this.
God's Pocket fills up quickly. They have a strong client return base.
