Comments Nice boat with very helpful and friendly crew.
Boat rooms were on the small side but comfortable and clean. The A/C worked!
All of the divers were very experienced. Divemasters were attentive but not intrusive.
Lots of sharks (Black Tip, Reef, Lemon), HUGE Groupers were notable. The plethora of fish on every dive and the very healthy coral reminded me of diving elsewhere in the Caribbean 48 years ago.
We snorkeled with a six foot salt water croc! He was only interested in some raw chicken the boat hand was offering over the side of the boat.
