Comments Superior boat with lots of room made this trip wonderful. The deck space and lounge areas both indoors and out were the best I've seen on a livaboard. While the cabins were on the small side, it didn't seem to matter because there was just so much space everywhere else on the boat. I slept most nights on the top deck, under the stars with the ocean breezes just because I could. The lounge chairs are comfortable and plentiful. The hot tub and upstairs bar area was where my group of four spent most evenings, even though they had just about every movie available on DVD to watch.

The diving is all wall diving and we encountered many sharks and large grouper on a daily basis. The jacks and barracuda accompanied us with the occasional turtle, eagle ray and even a manta. This diving was the easiest ever, always coming up right at the boats ladder. The walls are easy to navigate so they don't require you to go with their guides, although you had that option.

Captain Piers was one of the most gracious captains, always visable and always pitching in wherever he was needed to lend a hand. The whole crew did an outstanding job and the food was tasty and plentiful.

We had to dodge Hurrican Charlie to get out of Florida so had to leave a day early. We stayed at the Turtle Cove in and ate at some of the local restaurants. They were pricy but very good food. Best burger ever at Shark Bites!
