Comments We had our own group of six divers on a 6-pack boat. It was marvelous and Capt. Harry was an excellent host. The entire staff at Quiescence is friendly and helpful. We did shipwreck on first dive and reef on second; and dove with them for 6 boat trips. They run an excellent operation and took care of our gear between dives and let us store it at the shop for the week.

It's about 40-60 min. ride out to the dive sites. A couple of the days there were dolphins nearby and Capt.Harry took the time to go over by them for us to see. The dolphins followed our wake and played in it. He also explained lots of stuff about the Mangroves and channels we traveled.

The time between dives is only what it takes to get to the next spot... because the reefs are shallow enough to allow you to get right back in.
