I have never been on a dive boat that provided water in bottles at the cost
of $1 per bottle. No alternative source of water was available. They also
charged a 2 tank price for a 1 tank dive and I came up with 1480 psi
because we were all directed to do a safety stop at the same time
regardless of remaining air. I am not sure why the time pressure because
the ship did not sail for hours after our return. The dive itself started
out rather a disappointment with featureless bare landscape but continually
improved as the terrain became more pronounced and ended with the Boiling
Hole (no entry allowed), numerous swim throughs (not allowed) and plenty of
fish including a large lionfish. There seemed to be a lot of nice diving
and the water was outstanding but we were rushed through the dive and back
to the boat. I would like to try the area again but with another operator.
