Did an overnight trip with them June 20-21. Went to the Bass, Grecian, and Larchmont. Very nice and clean boat, great crew and an experienced and knowledgeable Captain. I'll be going back out Aug 23 with them to the Bass again and the U-853, hopefully the weather gods will be better to us this trip so we can actually go to the 853. By the way on the Larchmont during my deco I did the shark dive sans protective cage for no extra charge, what service.

It wasn't a cage dive per say, I was just circled below by sharks the last seven minutes of my deco. The viz was great on the bass 30 ft on the deck (140 fsw) and 40 to 50 on the bottom (155 fsw) you could actually make out the general shape and location of the bow section as you crossed the break. The Grecian was about 40 feet (95 fsw) and the Larchmont (125 fsw) was, well true to it's reputation I'll say at first there was maybe 5 ft of viz, then as the current settle maybe 20 ft, you could make out the outline black mass that is the top of the paddles. All fantastic dives though.

I went on the cage trip with sea turtle in sept. It was very cool, the vis in the cage was over 50 feet. We had a nice Mako and multiple blue sharks most of the day. the boat only takes a six pack of divers for the cage dive, so we got the entire boat for our group. It was a great day, next year we are going on one of the Block Island excursions they run, where you do two dives on saturday, and a cage dive sunday. Sounds like a blast to me!!
I highly reccomend Capt. chuck Wade and the sea turtle!
