Comments [None]The good:

The Aquanauts crew Jim, Mauricio,Nick and crew are the best. I have been diving with them for the last four years and usually stay in the ares about a month every spring.
As a committed air-hog i have appreciated the fact that after my first dive with them with the 80, Mauricio has always since had a aluminum 100 on board for me allowing for 70-75 min bottom time with the group.
I have never missed a dive because of equipment issues as Jim and the crew have always taken care of any problems.
No, its not Cozumel but its nice current diving, short boat rides
(10+ min), lots of rays, turtles. Morning dive is back to the dock by
11 am. We sometimes miss a day or two because of wind and getting back in the boat can be a bit of a challenge on windy mornings.
We did take the 9:am ferry to Cozumel one day and did a 2 tank with Aldora Divers (another excellent choice)and returned to mainland on the 5:00 pm ferry. Very nice but a long day.
The bad: Coming back to Idaho weather.
