RA divers while having a good boat and great DM's was quite unaccomadating
towards our repeated requests to dive more. We had a 5 day 2 tank reduced
to 4 days due to an incoming group (which then didn't influence us and we
got to make up two missed dives on that day anyway). We are fairly hardcore
divers and would have liked the options for 3-4 dives per day (and were
happy to pay for the extra dives), disappointingly we didn't get to do any
night dives at all. We asked to go out and were fobbed off about we needed
6 dives (we were 2)so we roped in more people then it became 'ohh, tomorrow
maybe'. A half-arsed excuse about the boat, tanks, wind, weather- pretty
much everythng and anything. The 'unlimited shore diving' was not so as
there were no tanks available unless you asked the day before- and even
then sometimes you got them, sometimes only half full...the staff, the
food, the resort were all wonderful- the diving-good but not enough. The
large group from LA that arrived Sunday had an OBNOXIOUS organiser woman
being an truly ugly American- loud, rude etc- think she was with a sport
chalet group. She was a disgrace and I hope this gets back to her whomever
she is.
