This trip was booked for the New Years holiday with 9 divers for four days.
The boat captain was the rudest, most arrogant captain I have encountered
in 15 years of diving. During the morning dive on day 1 he loudly said he
really did not want to make a night trip on New Years eve and canceled the
dive due to weather even though the seas were calm and little wind was

The captain would not accept any suggestions for dive locations. With the
exception of one afternoon trip all of our dives were in 35 feet or less
water. His response was almost all of the reefs in the Keys are at this

Our surface intervals were typically less than 30 minutes. The captain
started the clock and made it clear you better be back on or before the
time limit. Our divemaster on day one was great, after that we had
divemasters with similar attitudes to the captain. On two trips we also
took snorkelers and the locations were picked for them even though divers
outnumbered the snorkelers 3:1. 

The "resort" is old and needs updating. My t-shirt had more
cushion than the pillows. Housekeeping services only replaced towels not
sheets or anything else during our stay. The staff had obvious morale and
attitude issues. 

I want to go back to the keys and dive but will not stay at this resort. I
definately will not dive with them again.
