Comments This was a dive boat rented by the dive center in Ft. Myers for an open water certification dive, where others could join in. The dive boat was a 30' island hopper and the operation and crew seemed adequate. Capt. Pete's owner acted as the divemaster on a drift dive, and was totally oblivious to his new divers in the water, two had to stay on surface, unable to instantly get down. The dive site, pointed out by the boat capt. was really nice ("Hillsborough Ledges"). A nurse shark was immediately on the sandy bottom, and shortly thereafter a loggerhead who just kept eating, and ignoring us as we floated by. There was plenty of life-6-7 lobsters, grey angels,rock beauties, sharp tail eel, porkfish, parrots, etc. The second site was "Seperated Rock"- the dive master was given instructions from the Diversity capt. on where the reef was, but he totally missed it, and it became a 40 minute desert drift dive.
