Comments We did this dive from the cruise ship, arranged from home. Our dive master, Mike,was helpful and knowledgeable.I had shoulder surgery and had to take my tank off in the water with .rough seas; Miker basically stripped it off me! We dived the Carib Cargo & Proselyte. Both had curious reef sharks who hung around. The Peoselyte cannon and anchor were heavy with growth, and visited by Nassau groupers. The site had nice topography, fasns and soft corals. Good dives and good operation (my only negative comment is that we were promised dives around an hour and the first one was 38 minutes).
