Diving with a Jerk

from the May, 1997 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Kendall Botellio (Phoenix) led a Diving with a Jerk group of 14 to Little Cayman Beach Resort last September. They found the food excellent and the wall diving world-class. It was a good trip, marred only by the insensitive behavior of one of the divemasters.

Two neophyte divers in Kendall's group returned to the boat early during one dive. There they had to listen as the divemaster openly ridicule them in a conversation over the boat's radio: "You wouldn't believe the basket cases I have on my boat."

Anyone who has paid hard-earned money, traveled far, and used valuable vacation time will find this kind of treatment from a member of the resort staff inexcusable. We were all beginners when we started diving -- including this boorish divemaster. His condescending attitude and behavior earn him a richly deserved thumbs down.
