Comments This was my second trip on the Odyssey so I pretty much knew what to expect. The diving was great and guides were provided when you wanted one as in penetrations and on deeper dives when you didn't have the bottom time to look around.The staff really spoils you if you wish. They will carry your camera and fins to the dive platform and even put your fins on for you! After the dive, you hand up your camera and fins unless you want to climb the latter with them on. A hot shower is right there up one more set of stairs to hot towels, then over to your station.Leave your BC on your tank, and they refill right there with a 30 mix of Nitrox. Grab a snack and your dive buddy and when your computer says your good, usually one hour to a hour and a half and your back in. You can do 4 to 5 dives per day if you wish. The food was great, steak and lobster one night, breakfast is to order, lunch and dinner is bouffet. The captain Lenny and his wife Cara ate with us most of the time and were always helpful and in a good mood. We all had a great week, there was 16 of us, and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
