It's a good place to unwind, the warm breeze is a welcome change from the frostbitten fingers of old man winter. You'll discover that alcohol is cheaper than water, if you're so inclined. Best of all, there's good diving here, many sites with a lot of variety, and a healthy ecosystem. The islands lie within the Sir Francis Drake Channel, which is a shallow plateau at about 200 ft or 61m. This is great for divers because close to the islands are some of the nicer reefs in the area.
It would be worthwhile to spend a week on the islands, and do some shore-based diving.... but that's for an upcoming issue. This time we had the pleasure of being aboard the Cuan Law, owned and operated by Duncan and Annie Muirhead. She's a very nice boat, the worlds largest trimaran, or so they say. She's a big and comfy vessel with a lot of creature comforts, a huge salon, and a large dive deck. Join us on our ScubaCore Portrait of the Cuan Law, and see how she still manages to exceed expectations year after year.
