Comments Overall conditions were great, water temp though too warm for my drysuit unless I went deep and found the thermocline. We were on the Conception this year with only 25 divers. Very nice and uncrowded.The food was great!! The bunk area was ok, but I wish the A/C worked, it was very hot down there. We were able to dive Farnsworth banks on the west side of Catalina, but only one dive as half the divers were beginners and couldn't go deep (120'). This was my third time with Truth and each time we motored all night to San Clemente and each time the navy seals throw us out, was a waste of time. We ended the forth day around the northern islands after motoring all night from Catalina in the worst sea conditions ever, many were sick that night. The next day, our last it was almost too rough to dive. On the negative side, The captain must get paid by how many hours he puts on the engines, we spent way too much time just driving around in circles and moving from dive site to dive site. Overall, truth aquatics is a great deal, the most bang for our diving buck. Also, again the food was great.
