Comments Basic dive services, minimal assistance with tanks and gear. No snacks or drinks provided. Bring your own computer, rental computer used by my son reset after first dive, making the second dive like a first dive as far as tables were concerned. On the plus side, you can rent 100 cubic foot tanks.

Dives were a few days after Tropical Storm Hannah stirred things up, so vis was not as good as on past trips. Dives were "Deep" wreck dives to 100' plus depths.

Biggest meaningful negative to me was that they accomodated spear fishing on these wrecks. I wonder why there weren't as many large fish on these wrecks.
