Comments I have been trying to get this charter for 20 years, but the weather and life kept getting in the way.
Excellent crew with good briefings before every dive.
Professionally run, punctual and cooperative.
First dive 7:00 am on first day, then 4 more dives with 2 and 1/2 hour surface intervals. 2nd day has two dives on Stetson Banks, with intense wall diving.
Coral reefs [4], oil rig, and Stetson Banks, which was my favorite.
Great healthy coral, tropical fish and critters, sharks [silky], turtles, rays, dolphins.
Comfortable berths. 2 outside cold showers and one interior hot shower.
Gear and camera rinsing stations.
Excellent food, especially the Cajun sausage and pasta casserole.
A great experience and well worth the cost.
I would recommend that you must be at least an advanced diver.
