No separate rinse tank for cameras.  Inexperienced divers threw everything
imaginable into one rinse barrel.

Comments  
Fantasea is a well run, responsive organization operating out of a major
hotel property.  Postives are a friendly staff which asks for suggestions
before choosing a site and sets up equipment for second dive.  40' boat was
never overcrowded.  Local divers who have bought a season program augmented
paid staff.  Divers are tallied before boat leaves dock and after every
dive.

Negatives are no storage facility for diver-owned or rented equipment (have
to charge out fresh rented equipment each day).  Dive staff could do more
in the way of helping divers up onto dive step.  Once you're on board, they
are very helpful.
