I am a big advocate of that trip. I had a group of 11 last year and we put a lot of fish in the box. I put a 42lb black on the boat and another diver put a 30+ Yellow Fin Grouper, big mangos, Nice hogs (limits have decreased for 2017 and I think you are allowed 2 fish per trip per diver), a few cuberas, big Red Grouper, Yellow Jacks.. ect. I have not had the chance to lobster on this trip but we see them on almost every dive so I think you can do well out there. I will be going the last week of June with the same group as last year.
Good luck and Enjoy, it is a truly amazing dive trip!
