Comments This was truly a trip of a lifetime!! It surpassed even my greatest expectations. The diving was stupendous because of the variety of fish and coral, as well as the willingness of the dive guides to find the little critters that were specific to each site. The health and sheer biomass of both "flora and fauna" was mind blowing.
It was so nice to be treated as an experienced diver, with no restrictions whatsoever, other than that inherent in diving Nitrox. The skiff drivers would pick you up when you surfaced, and if no one else was up yet, they'd ferry you back to the boat, so you could dry off and relax, while they went back to get the others with longer dive profiles. If you were the last one up, you knew you weren't making anybody wait on you.
The staff on the boat were amazingly friendly and always smiling and laughing. Accommodations were roomy for a liveaboard, and everything was always very clean and tidy. The food variety, amount and flavor was just awesome. (have I used enough superlatives yet?)
Joshua and Amanda seemed so young to be the "cruise directors", but they did a fine job keeping everything running smoothly and handling any "hiccups" quite easily.
I have no negative comments whatsoever. Can't wait to go again!

UW Photo Comments There was a whole room up front with multiple shelves and power outlets that was plenty roomy for all the photographers on the trip. There were 2 big rinse tanks dedicated to cameras. The crew were fantastic in handling the cameras, and knew within one dive which set-up belonged to which diver.
