Coastal scuba has only one agenda, taking your money. This was a
decompression dive trip and coastal had no clue what to do. 3 crew members
the captain did not want to help at all and when asked to hand a mask to a
diver looked anoid. Dive master said very little current but there was 2-3
knot half of 15 divers never got to the wreck. Ladder is fins off and made
for difulcult and dangerous exits.4 foot swells witch is common here. Crew
could not saw where we were tied in on 400 ft wreck or how wreck lays in
sand. No mention of safety equipment on board. Best to stay away from
Coastal scuba and pride of carolinas. We had to ask for mask rinse bucket
