Don Foster's appeared to be a well organized operation, balancing many
divers and boats at once.  However, the restrictions and hand-holding
really ruined the dives for us.  My husband who is an instructor and has
over 1700 dives and I who am an advanced diver both brought our log books
to show our recent dive activity. We were treated as divers on our very
first dive, and held to an 80 foot depth limit and 40 minute dive time (1st
dive).  The divemaster (who was friendly) said that we had to follow him,
and banged his tank at me at 29 minutes to start up.  I was the last one on
the boat, at exactly 40 minutes dive time, including the safety stop.  The
second dive was with a different dive master, and I actually got about 45
minutes dive time (50 feet max depth).  I understand being safe, but we are
experienced certified divers with computers.  We are trained to dive beyond
80 feet, and to use our computers to moniter our dive safely.  Overall, I
was very disappointed.
