The dive operation is one of the best. However, they do not pair
experienced divers with experienced divers. Photographers that happen to
get into a group of divers that want to race around the reef with no desire
of the other divers to be patient for taking pictures--your out of luck.
The dive operation does help you with getting your camera off the boat and
into the water and out again. They have a separate container for cameras.
They could do a better job taking divers that want to see bigger fish,
sharks etc to those places. I was limited in what fish were available to
take pics of that I had already taken pics of.

I have dove in Bermuda for about 4 seasons. But the dive operators need to
take repeat customers to different sites. I am interested in underwater
photography. As a beginning photograher, they do not accomodate you very
well. They are very interested in getting you to a site, get you into the
water and out again--then to the second dive so they can get back to the
harbor by noon for the afternoon dive. So I felt very rushed. I came back
with well over 1000psi more than once, because all the new and
inexperienced divers had come back to the boat.

Blue Water divers are on top of their game as far as administration. They
have a very friendly staff. They are interested in making sure that you
have a good dive experience. It is just they need to pay attention to buddy
pairing. If they have a group of inexperienced once a year divers that want
to race around the reef, they should pair those with people who are of the
same ilk.

I have numerous dives on the same wrecks. I can't get the dive operators to
change though--even after I gave them a list of dives I have not been to.
So this was my last season in Bermuda for quite a while. The last 3 days of
diving that I could have done was interupted by a hurricane. They refunded
my dives for the days that I had already paid for yet could not dive
because of adverse weather. DHC
