Comments Three of us dove the Odyssey the week of 1/6/07. Flew Continental Houston, Guam, Truk and return without any major events. The Odyssey was an excellent experience; Capt. Nick and crew were fantastic. We dove 12 wrecks; 11 ships and the Betty Bomber. The crew were available for guided dives, but we could dive on our own. Dive briefings before each wreck were informative and complete; both wreck history, current conditions and points of interest. The divers were experienced with the exception of one. The crew went out of their way to make her week interesting. Viz ranged from two days of 100' to two days of 20'; generally 60' to 80'. The wrecks are still in good condition, but time is taking their toll. If you haven't made this trip, you should before the wrecks detoriate. Did a land tour the last day, but frankly it wasn't worth it.
