I have never seen an operation less helpful when it comes to your gear. 
You haul your stuff from the shop to the Jetty each day.  They say they
have facilities to store your gear while you are there and apart from
hanging your wetsuit/BCD with the rest of the rental gear my gear was
stored on the floor of the manager's office.  One day they weren't sure he
would be at work in time for the 8am dive to unlock his office.  They
wanted me to just use their gear instead.  When I complained, they looked
for a key to the office a little harder and found one!!  Out of 8 Dives at
least 4 times I had to change tanks because the fill was at 2500-2600psi!!!
 No offer of even fresh water to drink on the boat to stave off
