    First Liveaboard (Blackbeards) - What to expect?

    Key West, FL Diving?

    +1 for Bonsai Divers I dive with them everytime I am on the island and I have never been disappointed. Captain Peter is very nice to work with and will go out of his way to make sure you have a good experience.

Looe key reef IMO is a big a step up from the KW reefs. We had a great time there with lots of critters big and small. I really like there boat...

    Single on a BP/W w/o a STA

    Just a quick follow up: I decided to go with the STA. It is rock solid and keeps the tank square on the backplate.
