I would just like to say that I was on the Boat with this Guy and would
like to give a different view of his comments. I have been diving with
Indigo for 5 years now and only appreciate criticism when it is due and on
this occassion it was not.

Indigo Divers offer a Pick up service but after the first day of diving
with the Warren group it was clear that the only conversation was rude
jokes and conversation that made me cringe so no wonder if they had a car
Indigo would prefer to meet them at the boat.

As for the dive gear being stored at the rear of the Boat "HELLO is
that not where it is always stored on most dive boats lol"

Following Warren's departure on one day, one of the other guests commented
that they were relieved he was no longer on the boat. Having briefly met
Warren before diving with Indigo, they "already knew enough about
Him". I was equally offended by His course 'humour'.

Kate did sit with other divers at the front of the boat - where anyone was
at liberty to join, but fortunately chose not to which for me was great.

In the pre-dive briefings, Chris explained that he would be guiding the
dive & that Kate would follow the group to ensure everyone stayed
together, & provide additional assistance should anyone require it. So
essentially Chris plays the roll of dive guide whilst Kate oversees the
group as a whole. Anyone running out of air sooner than the rest of the
group would go up first (with Chris). On almost every dive this was Warren.
At which point Kate would take over guiding.

This is what we saw:

May 14	
North West Point: 3 spotted moray eels, 1 large green moray, 1 goldentail
Mitch Millers:	We spent the first half of the dive (after Special Request
from Warren's Group) exploring in the sand, where we showed you several
tiny headshield slugs, as well as other 'critters' that even we had not
seen before. Lionfish, west indian sea egg.

May 16:	
Orange Canyon: 13 Caribbean Reef Squid,
Hepps Pipeline: Juvenile spotted drum (at the beginning of the dive - which
Kate pointed out, just before asking you to watch your fins on the
coral).lettuce slugs. 

Regarding his ref to the split fins.
Kate waited for & assisted His friend Greg from the safety stop on the
line, to the ladder of the boat. He appeared to be struggling
as there was a fair current running. When they reached the boat Kate
pointed out that when diving in a current, split fins are not the best. You
have better propulsion with regular fins when swimming against current. It
was not a criticism of Gregs equipment, merely an observation & some
information that he may or may not use in the future.

Finally I would like to say that every experiance with Indigo Divers is a
great experiance and just every now and then you get some funny people on
the boat and even I was upset to be diving with this group and tried my
best to keep a distance. The only other thing that was not mentioned that I
love about Indigo is you get COOKIES and Pineapple/Oranges between dives
which is always a nice touch.

Happy Diving!!!!!
