But on the other hand....our first dive here in So Fla we went out with a 6 pack guy recommended by our LDS. He dropped us in the water, telling us the "wreck" was right below us. No drift flag, nothing. New divers we were at the time as well.
So we started swimming down, the vis was pea soup. After what seemed like an hour we decided to surface and ask him again where the wreck was. Well guess what? No boat on the surface anyway that we could see. Being new to the sport, I paniced a bit, my buddy helped me through it, I dropped my weight belt and we just drifted. A short time later, a small fishing boat came upon us and took us on board. When they asked what the name of the boat was so they could radio, it occurred to us he never told us.
We called the LDS on the radio and learned what we needed. A short time later the boat came, picked us off the fishing boat. The guy told us he was getting ready to call the Coast Guard!!
That was the last dive trip this guy ran, he went to work for a tow boat company and was "nice" enough not to charge us.
The point of this long winded story (sorry) is that sometimes you have to say your piece.....Diving can be dangerous, people can get into all kinds of trouble all by them selves with out the "professionals" helping them to do.
