Comments Bubbles Below came very highly rated from several sources. Did not find them to be as good as advertised. Boat was very small with the large engine hatch cover taking most of the aft section. Ordered 32% Nitrox but when analysed varied by as much as 4%. Conditions were not good with lots of "snow" at most sights. Crew was very helpful in that they did not hassle if you wanted to do your own equipment setup. Both DM's were good at finding "critters". I would like to thank them for finding & returning a lost weight pouch, that was very thoughtful. Was dissappointed that I did not get to do the trip to the Forbidden Island due to Linda (owner) being "off Island" that week. If you do dive with them I advise taking your own water/snacks. Water from cooler had a musty/stagnent taste. Snacks were either crushed candy bars or dry cookies.
