Too many divers on the boat

Under water was great! Dive guide was wonderful but the boat is older and tired. There were way too many day trip divers on board which meant that it took 2 hours to get everyone in and out of the water as groups went in stages.

Meeting lots of different people from numerous countries and of course the diving. Diving on Richelieu rock was incredible. The boat was brilliant not too big. The staff and the food were exceptional ;)
