Comments 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 dives.

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.
