Trip was booked on-line, scheduled as a 2-tank advanced dive, with
instructor.  Various possible locations were listed, including a Lave tube,
and WWii Corsair, at depths to 100 feet.

I was the only certified, recent, diver on the trip, the majority of
customers, 30-plus, were non-diving turists, along for
an 'introductory dive' of a few minutes, at shallow depth, with an
instructor.  As the only experienced diver, I was permitted to set my own
profile, although with an instructor/buddy.  We were in relatively shallow
water (40 feet, max.) and lacking any of the advertised sights.  It appears
this site was selected with the main purpose of doing the introductory

Furnished dive gear was a basic BC & Regulator, only an air gauge, and
a single second stage.  Fortunately, I had my computer, so that I could
monitor my depth.

The introductory divers had to dive in shifts, leading to a long on-site
for the first dive.  the boat had to return to por between dives, to
off-load the intro-divers.  Due to the length of the first dive, I declined
to do the second, so I have no comments on its quality.

The dive crew seemed to be competant, and were very helpful; if there were
only experienced divers aboard, the trip could have lived up to its
billing, although I was not pleased with the quality of the provided gear.
