Comments Freeport diving is nice , but not exciting diving. I rate operations with an old fashioned concept that a C is average, unlike Harvard with considers A- average. Sunn Odyssey divers were nice to dive with and helpful in the water, but they cancel dives if they even think there may be a storm coming which was a problem bacause I then had to find another operator to go with. Overall they were a B- in the water but a C with their erratic cancellations, giving them a C plus average. Unexso is modern with a large beautiful boat. It's dive masters are young Americans who have been diving for a year or two at most. They are confident but not mature, similar to an 18 year old who has been driving for two years,,,,,,,,,,,experienced but not the best driver on the road. Their operation is a C , on the boat they are C plus, a bit better than average. Overall they are a C which is average ad not bad. Caribbean divers is another story. The operation in the office is very nice. The dive master is tired and looking forward to finishing the dive quickly. Very little discussion about the dive,and he barely notices you in the water( not great for new inexperienced divers). The first dive was supposed to e 60 feet for 40 mintues, but the time started as he was telling us this. By the time we were in the water, it was more like 30 minutes. Fortunately we all ignored him somewhat adn decided to come up to the rest stop at about 35 minutes, or 40 minutes for me. This , however, only reduced our interval time, since he had already decided when we were to reenter the water, leaving me only about 15 minutes between dives. I am glad I had the computer to watch my depth and time. The good news was that he ignored me in the water and I had a good time. Over rating is a D plus. No operation is great, but the diving was pleasant and alot of large fish and sharks. I enjoyed the dives
