Typical Keys operation, where the dive masters never get wet. The only
refreshments on the boat was a cooler of water.  We were told this was a
"no fin boat" which meant you took your fins off on the tag line,
10 ft. or more from the boat, while the waves pushed you into the ladder
(you didn't see this happening,as you were looking down, taking off your
fins, rather than holding onto ladder and being aware of rise and
fall,etc.) and you risked dropping your fins. The crew is there to just
drive the boat and to remind you to switch tanks. On one dive, the crew
giant strided someone almost on top of me. The highlight of the dive
experience was , "we don't know what the current is, would one of you
divers volunteer to check it out?"
