We did a day trip to the platform off of the cruise ship we were on. I am an experienced diver and spend a lot of time on small boats. The trip was advertized as a 1-1/2 hour boat ride and 3 hours on the platform. The boat ride was more like 2-1/2 hours each way and total time on the platform was around 1-1/2 hours. The visibility was no more than 25ft. and rather than spending more money for Scuba I jumped in with mask and snorkel and saw all I needed in 10 minutes. 50% of the folks got sick on the way out and the way back and I could not imagine that I would ever do this again.
