One of my favorite dive operators, Sunset Divers, has closed due to lack of
payment from the resort over four months.  I have not yet heard if, where
and when Sunset Divers will reopen.

An e-mail to Sunset Waters manager in the US (Frank Chihak) was returned
with an auto-reply that he "no longer represents" the resort. 
The US reservations manager, Cory Acosts, replied:

"Sunset Waters has not been able to honor last wks reservations …….it
is just a matter of time before we may be closing our doors …….

Until everything is resolved , we will probably close …………Pls make other
travel arrangements.

I am also waiting for further information from our corporate
offices……………"

and listed names, e-mails and phones for the managing partners and the
senior accountant.

The websites for Sunset Divers and Sunset Waters have not, as of July 20,
2009, been updated to indicate any of the recent events.  Divers beware!
