We are very impressed with this boat and its captain. For the first time in two weeks of being aboard vessels, we had a safety briefing before we left the dock; there are clearly posted safety procedures; we heard the warning sound (should something happen) and we've seen the lifejackets. So much for "safety third." The boat is marvellous, with spacious cabins, big showers, wifi (!!!), and more deckspace than open ground on our Broadview Road lot. The food is enough to make the wetsuit zippers more and more challenging after each meal (luckily, we can trade up a size or two as needed). It is all good, healthy meals made with local-grown, tasty food except for ... the fish. There isn't much commercial fishing left here (many little fish to please the tourists like us, though), due to 12,000 + years of habitation around the Aegean Sea. Apparently, much of the fish consumed here comes from around Norway.
Several more days of diving to go. We will battle on bravely.
