Comments Very safety conscious. Checked C cards, checked weighting before first dive, boat and dive briefings each day. Two divers got back on board having violated a deco stop and were banned from the boat the next day. Boats had heads, first aid kits and oxygen.

We had 12 to 16 divers so the boats were close to full but not too full. Good boats and crews had good attitude.

We went to West Caicos or Northwest Point each day so rides were 50-60 minutes. Awesome sandwiches, fruit and banana bread together with water and a fruit drink (it wasn't very good).

I thoroughly enjoyed the dive. We had a pod of dolphins play in the wake the first day for about 10 minutes. The highlight of the trip.
