Comments The Rocio del Mar has always treated us as family. The food is great and lots of it. They do their best to accommodate requests for special diets and the substitutes are sometimes better than the regular meal. The Captain and the crew are well seasoned and are used to dealing with all kinds of weather and conditions. They know the diving spots well and do their best to put you in the right spots. The crew of the Pangas are very helpful to help you get out of your gear before boarding the boat and the boat ride back to the mother ship is usually pretty short. The cabins arenít fancy, but they are very comfortable. This is our third trip on this boat and I would not hesitate to do it again.

UW Photo Comments The Camera table is set up in the middle of the back deck. It has plenty of room and there are plenty of plugs in various places on the boat to charge electronics. The Video equipment is easy to use and your "slide" shows can be shown after the dive.
