Comments Our trip was excellent, largely as a result of the efforts of the crew. Sam & Kellie are excellent divemasters and found many very small things (pigmy seahorse, nudis, etc) for us. I have a good picture of a pigmy seahorse that I could only just sort of see. The "crew" did an excellent job on the boat and on the tinnies. Galley crew was super with cookies and other munchies, even excellent sasahimi.

I have been on many dive boats over the years but this crew was the best I have known. They took excellent care of us and our equipment.

It should be noted that it was helpful for our experience that there were only six divers on the boat. I would not have wanted to be there if there had been twenty.
