Aqua-Nuts, Revisited

from the July, 2001 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

After reading “Divers’ 25-Hour Left at Sea” in the April issue (which described the experience of two divers left behind by Aqua-Nuts in Key Largo), my wife and I felt we should let other divers know of our experience with Aqua-Nuts and Kelly’s in October 2000 and February 2001. We couldn’t have had a better time! The staff at Kelly’s as well as Aqua-Nuts were courteous and organized. They “bent over backwards” to accommodate their customers. As a result of Michael and Lynda Evans being left at sea, the boat/diver management has been corrected. Roll calls are taken on land prior to boarding, once again after boarding, and most importantly, one more time following each and every dive. The boat captain, divemaster and crew were not only efficient and attentive, but also fun to dive with. We certainly do not wish to minimize the experience of Michael and Lynda Evans. In fact, we completely sympathize with what happened to them. It should not have occurred with proper dive boat management; head counts, roll calls, dive tags, or some other means to make sure that everyone is accounted for after a dive. Unfortunately, it usually takes an incident like this to highlight a problem. Fortunately, no loss of life occurred.

So, at this time, from our perspective, we feel that the Aqua-Nuts should be given a “green light” as being a safe and efficient dive operation. We have no problem in recommending them to other divers.
