    The get wrecked is a good trip if you like metal, they do get to quite a few of the main wrecks as well as across to the Roslie Moller and a few others round gobel island.

    If you look out into the blue you may see some sharks and you do often get dolphins around the wrecks.

    I'm heading out to the mistral this sat doing a wrecks and reef trip for a change (I've done 5 get wrecked trips) as I've got a new strobe I want to play with.
    Did you get a bargain?

    I booked a while ago as I had to arrange it with work, they do do a discount if you have travelled with them 2 or more times, not as much as the discount for cyclone but my trip was almost full when I booked.

    I don't i'm afraid, not been on any of the blue 02 boats, the tornado fleet are a mixture of steel and wooden boats, i think the blue 02 are all steel but I could be wrong.

    there's not much difference in setup between the two types they're all specced really well with air con, on suite and decent dive decks the only noticeable thing is the steel boats sit slightly better in the water and don't roll as much.

    Thanks Spark, but the blue 02 boat I was on, one of the guys mentioned it was a wooden boat and he was very surprised himself! Blue 02 was a decent boat plenty of comfort for me and with hot powerful decent showers. The bedrooms even had an empty mini fridge and tv to use.
