We had to follow guide on all dives, but bottom time was not shortened by
fast air users - they were sent to surface sooner.

They had a rinse tank, that's about it. I forgot a Nikonos V setup with a
strobe and it was locked away on the boat waiting for me the next day even
though I was not scheduled to dive with that operator again. Very honest

Dive the World is a broker/agent - in my case they listend to what my
expectations were and paired me up with local operators that would meet
these expectations. Each of the three operators I dove with was equally
professional and friendly operating the appropriate vessel for the the
diving we were doing. Breakfast & lunch were served on each day trip.
We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel in newer clean air
conditioned vans. All boats had hot water showers.

Overall it was a good trip, although I would not make a trip to Thailand
for the diving alone. I may have been disappointed because recent bad
weather left visibility supposedly poor. I saw lots of lion fish and
different fish species then we see in the Atlantic. I used a wet suit on
the first and second day but by the 3rd day I was happy without one and
dove the next 2 days without.
