Comments Crew was very accomadating and fun. Boat was comfortable and never over crowded. Water, drinks, snacks were provided and there was always pletty. Surface intervals were fairly short a few times but only limited us on 2 of our 12 dives. There are a number of wrecks in this area that beginners could dive easily and many more for the more experienced advanced and even tech divers. Don't let them put you with the snorkers if you don't like shallow reefs. The dives were fun and lots to see but 35' max. 2 dives at this depth gets a little repetative but great for UWP!
