I’ve been diving on this boat since the 90s and it remains one of the best! Great captain, great staff, great food and a jacuzzi on board!

First time diving with Spectre boat, and they were great. I was nervous as a new-to-dry suit diver plus diving side mount, which I know they were not accustomed to. The automated form on the signup page made it a little difficult to express my special needs, but staff returned my phone calls/emails promptly. They were able to accommodate my need for 2 tanks at the same time, DIN valves, and extra weight for my nerves. They were also helpful in climbing up and down the ladder in the back and handing down my 2nd tank. Really appreciated their flexibility and would definitely dive with them again.

We enjoyed our trip. They had a great breakfast. Lots of snacks, including fruits and yogurt, ice cream. Lunch was ok. Bring your own bottle for drinks. They don’t have cups. The staff helped if you needed help. The area was beautiful. There was not much lobster hunting allowed. Mostly reserves. The water clarity was great. I would dive with them again.

Always goes to the best available dive locations. Every year when we make the trip out from Colorado to dive from the Spectre the boat always shows upgrades. Very clean, organized, and well managed. Food is delicious with generous portions. Good air fills and ready to dive at each dive site. We saw octopus, sea lion, Seals, and even a Mola Mola. Fantastic trip and a great way to spen three days diving.

The Spectre is a great dive boat. The crew is accommodating and assists divers from donning equipment to getting divers back on board the boat after their dive. The food is also fantastic from BBQ chicken, tri-tip, or vegi-burgers, there is something for everyone.
