Comments This was my first trip since getting NITROX certified, although I've been diving for 17 years. Nekton folks made it simple and fun. We only had 11 divers on a boat built for lots more so they gave all of us solo travelers separate rooms. A real classy move IMHO. I would not want to have shared one of those cabins with another guy. Just too small for two guys. Food was very good. Staff was excellent. Easy going, friendly & helpful throughout the week The Nekton SWATH design really does eliminate pitch while making the passage to Brac & Little Cayman. I took a dramamine to be safe & slept well while we made that crossing. They chose dive sites that were outstanding almost every time. There were tons of turtles, a few sharks and Eagle Rays. Very few morays for some reason. Crabs & lobster on night dives & the usual Carribbean cast of characters. Overall, an
excellent trip .
