Comments We booked a few day diving on short notice. Chris and Kate responded promptly to emails, very pleasant and patient on the phone and in person. Pick up at our hotel was smooth and punctual. The boat is well padded, very plush and comfy. Gear rack is at the back of the boat, not easily accessible to fiddle with gear while underway. Entry was sit on the platform, Chris helped us into our BC, then seated front roll in. To exit we handed up gear one at a time then come up the ladder while Chris switched tanks. They provided towels. We used the spray hose at the back to rinse our faces. There was no camera bucket. We were surprised there was no boat briefing, and no one remained aboard boat during the 1st dive each day.
We prefer to explore at our own slow pace taking pictures and spaced apart from other divers. We knew guided group dives were available, didn't realize that was expected for 1st dive each day even with little to no current. Perhaps that was to prevent divers from boarding the empty boat.
