Comments Force-E will schedule you with one of several dive boats according to the type of dive you want to do (wreck, reef, depth, night dive, etc). Nitrox and rental equipment available. For this dive, I went out on the Diversity with Captain Tony. The dive master stayed on the boat to help with entries and exits and everyone was paired with a buddy. Water and packaged fruit drinks were provided. With the boat at full capacity (15 divers) it was a little crowded.

We dove the Sea Emperor (Sea Empress) with a max depth of 71 feet and then Boca Trench with a max depth of 65 feet. At the wreck, there were a couple of attentive stingrays and even a sleeping nurse shark in the sand. The wreck itself is upside down as it flipped during sinking. You can penetrate the wreck through some open areas in the top (hull).

The reef was healthy and had some ledges for lobster, crabs and moray eels to hide in. We saw another stingray swimming around in the sandy area to the west.

The crew of the boat were friendly and very helpful. There are many different types of dives in this area to be done and I would use this operation again.
