Unfortunately for us the boss was not on site due to a personal emergency. 
On the day of our arrival wind swept in from the SW and remained until the
day we left.  The boat captain did not want to take us out--because of the
wind he claimed, but more likely because we were too few to make it
worthwhile.  We did go on one dive--24 divers on a small boat.  Dive
operation personnel did not seem real anxious to serve the divers.
Divemaster on boat had no idea who was in the water and how much air they
had.  Boat captain was a bit "short" with some divers.  Photos of
the wrecks in the area (including the "Baron Gautsch") were
impressive and made us want to dive.  Too bad we came towards the end of
the summer season.  Food on site was reasonably priced, but nothing
special; good meals in town.  Accommodation was substandard.  Locals were
friendly; English and German widely spoken.  Limited public transportation;
long drive from Germany; accessible from Venice by boat.  The leader of our
group has dived here 5 or 6 times--he says it is good--certainly has to be
better than this experience.
