The Worst Kind of Name-Dropping

from the September, 2007 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

We like all of our subscribers, except those that ruin dive trips and use our name to threaten dive operators. Good subscribers Barbara Shiveley and Ken Scott (La Plata, MD) ran into a few bad ones on their dive trip with Sea Eye Diving in Grand Turk last June.

“A group of men from a dive club in the South arrived with all their toys, including underwater scooters,” says Shiveley. “They were told the boat, a little Carolina skiff for eight divers, wasn’t large enough to accommodate the scooters but they dragged them aboard anyway. Their buzzing around annoyed other divers, scared the fish we were trying to watch and photograph, and generally ruined otherwise lovely dives.

“On top of this, they actually threatened the operator by saying if they were not treated really well, they would write bad things about the operation to Undercurrent!”

We haven’t yet got any bad reviews about Sea Eye Diving from scooter-wielding divers but if we do, we’ll cancel their subscriptions.
