Comments You were assigned to the same boat each day with the same crew (Vickie & Phil were great), so everyone knew each other with a roll call after every dive. Each dive breifing was thorough with white board diagrams, reference points, boat location and compass readings. You could follow the dive master or buddy up and go on your own. General rule on first dive was 45 minutes & 100 feet, but those with computers were allowed to dive their own profile. All Nitrox divers were off the boat first and logged 55 to 60 minutes.

Ice water, punch, cut fruit, and snacks , fresh water hose to rinse off between dives. Most of us did 3 tank dives each day with a break for lunch. Spoiled is the only way to describe the great service. Never touch your gear after the first day, they changed tanks, washed your gear, and had it dry and waiting for you on a dressed tank every morning.
