Top Notch! My first time to dive with this organization. I did the one day two tank, (Nitrox) dive on the Texas Clipper. They were on time on target. They did everything they said they were going to do. I would and will dive with them again in the future. The conduct and the professionalism of the crew was outstanding very friendly and knowledgeable about diving on this wreck. Critical due to the difficulty, (scale of 1 to 10, I would rate an 8, definitely divers need to be advanced open water at a minimum with about 25 dives under their belt also Nitrox certified would not hurt). That brings me to one critique, as always it is a mixed bag when it comes to diving on a charter with regards to skill levels of the participants. My opinion there were divers on this trip that weren't up to task in so far as making this adventure dive i.e. large wreck, current, water temp, depth, overheads etc. I would of not let them dive unless they had a guide. I was lucky, got paired up with two experienced divers and no problems. Second critique point the boat. No major problems in so far as maintenance upkeep and piloting, but in my opinion the wrong platform, (a converted oil rig tender boat) Deep V totally enclosed cabin A/C all good but all your gear is stowed up top on the cabin and you can't get to it till you hit the water, (me I like having positive control on my gear) also while the vessel is under way no problem but when stopped with the it sitting high in the water rolls like a B@#$. Again, not really configured for diving it is a transport vessel. Other than that it was a great day of diving! Todd K Rockport TX
