Comments The ship had just got out of dry dock, unfortunately it wasnít ready. Inadequate air conditioning, understaffed crew, no spare scuba equipment. Internet was $100, and not worth it. The worst part was Captain Hernan. He was rude,arrogant and dismissive of reasonable complaints. He didnít help the crew with dive operations and rarely addressed the guests. It turned out some of the crew werenít paid. Dive sites were just adequate and repetitive. It seemed there was a communication problem between sea creatures dive shop ,the captain, crew and home office. Would hesitate to book with them again.
