First off, let me start this by saying THANK YOU to Jupiter Dive Center. These guys were AWESOME and I don't think I've had a better experience on a boat. If you're diving with new divers in your group, Chris is an excellent dive master and was perhaps the most attentive that I've see. He wasn't like most just there to enjoy the dive and ignore divers, he really kept an eye on everyone. I don't normally post reviews on dive boats, but this was well deserved.

Now for the pics (Thanks to JahJahWarrior)-

Thanks for the recommendation. I've been meaning to dive with them but haven't yet. Definitely on the list now. Where were you diving? That third picture with the 'arches' is phenomenal. I must go there. Wreck or reef?

We did the zion train and then a reef. I forget the exact name of the reef, but that first pic is of the zion. It was a great set of dives. We missed the wreck the first time, and the dive master rounded everyone up and we did a re-drop.

Here's more pics-

Thanks for the pics guys!

Yup, JDC is a stellar operation. Very professional crews; Captains, DM's and surface support.

let me tell you my story, i was a little worried because i had never dove in salt of a boat but like ucfdiver said chris is a great DM. he was there for me ever step even when i was having trouble getting down. we did 2 dives one was called capt mikes reef which i think capt mike made up but a pretty reef dive but the second was i think called the tunnels dive and man i can tell you it was the most awsome dive i ever done we saw goliath grouper (20 to 30) tones of sting rays a nurse shark and 4 or 5 reef sharks. there were also tone of life like fish and eels. viz was 80 to 90 foot you could see bottom as soon as u got in and we dove 85 to 94 ft deep. like ucfdiver said chris the DM went down with 4 divers and 2 were air and 2 nitrox and he kept up with all of us real well and still pointed out stuff, this is one that i would use again and again. i know there were 6 on the boat and 3 of them were setting up dive for the next day which tells u that they are a great operation.

Which boat were you on? JupiterMermaid, CTX120 and I were on the Republic IV.

I did both the morning and afternoon with JDC, and again the morning of the 12th.
