Comments This was our third trip on this boat and we liked it just as much as the previous visits. The itinerary takes you to dive sites that most day boats cannot access so the sites are never crowded. The boat is very comfortable and stable. The staff was very accommodating and the captain was very knowledgeable of the area. We dove sites around Northwest Point, West Caicos and French Cay. The walls are impressive and so is the fish life: schooling fish, stingrays, turtles, barracudas, all the usual caribbean fish. We saw sharks on almost every dive. Currents are minimal and the water was mainly calm. The visibility was great on most dive sites.
On board, we enjoyed the spacious salon. The meals were varied and always excellent with snacks available between dives. Beer and wine are included in the package and was flowing as much as you wanted. A great boat offering some of the best diving in the Caribbean!
