Comments Crew very knowledgable. Ave. 6-8 divers. I did not feel like I was on a cattle boat. Boat roomy and easy to get on and off of. They had both vegetarian and non snacks for rest time between dives. Had a good choice of dive packages and reasonable prices. Did give a discount if dove more than two days.
