Enforced diving restrictions  
All divers need to demonstrate basic skills:  Mask removal and clearing
underwater, regulator retrieval, buddy breathing.  Done by having everyone
jump off the boat (at the dock) in 10 feet of water and 1:1 with dive
master.  Not a bad idea for large operation with lots of customers / week.

     I like Anthony's Key Resort.  Have been there before and they get a
little better every time.  One thing I noticed was how well organized their
dive operation was.  AKR appears to manage over 100 divers a week, on a

all with easy ladders.  Boat facilities included sunshades or roofs,
drinking water, some type of camera table, emergency oxygen, marine radio. 
No heads on our boat.  Dive routine was to leave dock at 8:00 after
