Comments We were on a long-awaited trip to the Keys for diving in red-tide-free water. In Key Largo, we attended Reef Fest afternoon seminars for 3 days and in the mornings went diving with Lucky Fish Scuba. LFS is a brand-new charter operation (July 2018) with a brand new 29' World Cat. Glenn and Jill Wright have lived and dived all over the world and that experience and confidence is evident. Docked at MM 106 in Key Largo meant that we were loaded and out on Carysfort Reef for Day 1 in less time than most other operators spent navigating the mangroves to open water. Day 2 was at Elbow Reef exploring two wrecks, from train tracks to old cannons. The boat was large and comfortable, with lots of cushioned seating, awesome stereo, marine head, fresh water shower, fresh towels and cold wash cloths for post-dive comfort. A large ice compartment held a hand-pump jug of cold water and we were provided aluminum bottles for refilling water. Fruit and snacks (including gummy fish!) were provided. Loved having the boat to ourselves--you may pay a bit more (or maybe not if you have up to 4 in a party) but anyone who detests cattle boats knows it's more than worth the dinero not to be cramped, rushed and stepping over 10 other people. You can tell Captain Glenn where you want to go (or rely on him to pick a spot) and then get there in relaxed comfort. Your private yacht for the day. Doesn't get any better than that!
