I wanted to tell someone about the potential for serious trouble at Fantasy
Island...all dive boats have one captain and one dive master regardless of
the number of divers on the boat. Our best day was four divers and our
worst day we had a total of nineteen in the divemaster...the
group had a wide range of experience and the one divemaster was no match
for that many in one group !!!

We decided on a night dive....big mistake...fourteen divers and, again, one
divemaster. The strobe on the divemasters tank was good for about twenty
feet...eight divers got separated and ended up swimming close to a quarter
mile back to the boat.

We had the feeling that our divemaster was more concerned about his
employment than the conduct of his divers. This is best illustrated in two
ways...1] There is a no glove rule on Roatan but more than one diver wore
gloves and nothing was said..2] We had one out of control photographer who
insisted in attempting to get as close as possible to walls and coral.
Guess what...yes..he lost buoyancy on several occasions which caused him to
do major damage. Again...the divemaster was silent!!
