There were no accomodations made for UWP. One divemaster took a
photographers camera by the port, which came off in his hand while the
camera fell back into the ocean!

This was the worst of "Cattle Boat Diving". Dangerously
overcrowded boats, 35 divers on a boat designed for 20! No oxygen, no
emergency equipement, NO saftey briefings, Little briefings of any kind.
Very disorganized. Only trying to pack as many people as possible on a
boat. No one in charge or knowing what they were doing. Promised all sorts
of great sites and then took us to the same poor sites. No repair
equipement, not even o rings for there own tanks. Everyone blamed everyone
else and made all sorts of excuses and provided NO service at all. Many
times no dive guide accompanied the dive group. I will Never use this
company again. It is a miracle they have not killed someone!
