This was the worst diving experience we have ever had.  We would never
recommend this company to any of our dive friends.  We arrived to meet the
boat and the first question we were asked was how we were going to pay for
the diving.  No one in the organization ever asked to see our certification
on any of the dives we took with them.  We headed out on the boat with a
new boat captain and a new dive master.  The dive master was unable to find
the mark for the mooring and struggled for several minutes until she was
brought back on board and a second attemp was made.  While she was
inexperienced, she did everything she could to make our dive memorable.  On
the second day, we went out with a group of new divers, a new dive master,
and a new boat captain.  It was disasterous!  One of the new divers didn't
like his fin so he took it off.  In doing so, he lost track of his bouyancy
and began to rise to the surface.  The dive master was not aware of this at
all.  The boy's father swam up to him and made him put his fin back on. 
The two descended and rejoined the group.  It was one of the scareiest
dives I have ever been on.  Thank goodness no one got hurt.  The crew was
cordial and shared critter information with us, but this did little to
change our view of this is the bottom line with them.
