Comments Really was not a lot of negative comments to be made. Boat was very comfortable, with lots of room for sleeping, eating and lounging. Reading and video materials were plentiful and a lap top computer was available to view digital images. Crew was very accomodating in all respects and dive tenders were spacious and comfortable. Fish and Fins gives divers the option to be shuttled, of the mainland, to various dive spots or jump aboard the live-aboard. It's a bit less expensive to dive from shore but the boat rides tend to be long and the number of dives are cut short by having to travel to and from the island. The live-aboard traveled around most of the island's prime dive spots and a trip to Jellyfish Lake was offered as an option. The night dives proved very interesting with plenty of subject matter. I would go again to this area as soon as I forget about the 23 hours to get there from Florida.
