Whales like I’ve never seen before captured on film by several of our divers this past trip! Some of the pictures and video of a mother and very new calf was breathtaking for those of us stuck above water. I happened to have a sneak preview of several of these treasures before any kind of […]Read More
The sea life drawn to this rocky volcanic pinicle rising out of the deep is so prolific and diverse I can't help but get excited for what we may see tomorrow!
The crew and I had a very busy turn around in preperation for this trip. We completed a thorough audit of our safety management systems conducted by Lloyd’s. It is a pleasure to work on a vessel that though not required by regualation to meet this high standard of certification, has been chosen by the […]Read More

This phenomenon in itself is a beautiful sight to see and I was happily taking it in on the bow when I noticed two streams of the flashing lights darting and weaving in front of the bulbous bow. Dolphins. It was too dark to see the creatures themselves but they raced through the water, slicing […]Read More

In the past few weeks I have seen marine life I had previously only saw on television or in magazines despite sailing on the Pacific, Atlantic, and in the Gulf of Mexico for the past 15 years.

It is such a pleasant change to work with a very positive and professional multinational crew, and enthusiastic guests who have traveled from all over the world to […]Read More

A pod of dolphins just swam around us. I'm talking 3 – 4 feet away and I counted 10 different animals all do the same thing. It was like a ballet dance.
I had a great 2 days diving at Roca Partida with nice hot weather and warm water of 81 F and the visibility about 100 plus . The sighting of hammerhead ,silkys, galopogos sharks,silver tips, white tips,and manta just hang with us for the whole dive on some dives. When we are doing our safety […]Read More
