“Hi Folks, Just thought I’d drop a line to tell you how great a time I had on your charter. I dive off the coast of Vancouver Island (Canada) where it’s all cold water diving, it was so nice to dive in temperate waters and to see new critters. Thanks to the captain and crew of the boat for making the trip enjoyable and memorable. I’ll tell my friends about you!”
