TIME!!  This dive operation is a joke.  We traveled two hours to get to the
Blue Hole and they limited dives to 30 minutes.  We were coming up with
1500psi.  When I asked why the time the answer was we want to get back
before dark.

This trip was actually in January and we dove with Pro Tech.  Their big
boat however was in the shop so they had to hook us up with Ambergris
Divers for the trip to the Blue Hole and also Turneffe.  What a hose job. 
These bozos limited our dives to 30 minutes and we were coming up with 1500
psi.  I asked why and they said it was to get back before dark.  Why that
had anything to do with it is my guess.  We left to go there an hour before
sunrise.  Not a good deal to travel two hours in the boat to only be able
to use half your tank. I told the guy to look at my gauge that I had 1500
psi left and he just shrugged his shoulders.  I menioned this to Peter at
Pro Tech and he wasn't happy and said he would talk with them.  We weren't
charged for our night dive so maybe that was his way of taking care of our
complaint.
