This was the best dive staff I have dived with. Stan and Andrew are A+
professionals. You can dive your own profile and they are there if you need
them. They set up your tanks after the first dive and do an excellent job
in taking care of the divers. The dive briefings were concise and
knowledgeable. The viz was outstanding and the geographical aspects of the
walls are, at times, astounding. There were plenty of critters, and the
macro photographers were happy. The boat needs work and the owner of Riding
Rock needs to sink some capital into the boats, dive shop and upgrading the
operation. The food was plenty and good and the accomodations were fine.
Did two AM dives and one afternoon dive. One night dive in the week was
fine. Despite the shortcomings of the boat, this was our 6th trip to San
Sal (at Riding Rock) and we'll return. Club Med will reopen in December,
but I'll stick with Riding Rock. I think this was the best dive staff that
we have dived with and I hope they will hang on. Otherwise, will be a
tremendous loss to San Sal and Riding Rock. We will return since this is an
awesome place to dive.
