Josh did a great job with the teaching and getting us "geared up." No small feat. He focused on making it a fun trip and all of us are ready to go again!

As always the staff and crew were awesome. My wife was I'll and decided to stay on the boat instead of diving. James and Josh made her feel better about calling the dives.
