Comments Professional organization in the shop and dive planning and dive phases. Well managed dive with excellent dive briefings and very good concern for safety. Guided dive profiles were very good and varied. Dive master paid close attention to divers in group. Overall very good experience in the water.

Dive boat, while large (42ft), was in poor condition. Marine head is really bad - not clean and no light. Both engines had difficulty on return trip. In fact we were dead in the water for about 20 minutes. Crew handled as best they could and got one engine running again but this never should have happened. Turns out that at least one of the engines had a known problem before the trip. I chose not to dive with them again on this trip. I might go with them again if they get a newer boat or invested in the repair and condition of the one they have.
