    Hey, folks! Trying to book a dive for myself and some friends and it looks like (gasp!) the Silver Prince and Monterey Express are gone? Yes, I've been out of touch (before you guys start saying "where have you BEEN?! They've been gone for years!"). I hope not. I don't know any boats beyond Sanctuary, Beachhopper 2 and Escapade, and the Escapade does not appear to have any charters scheduled in the next few months.

    What gives? Are there boats I don't know about?

    I feel really sad about this... :;sniff::

    Yes, they are a dying breed. Three boats, half the fleet, have left the business in the last ten years.
