Comments Boat captain decides on dive site, which on the day I went with them was chosen for least bumpy water.
Divers are assigned buddies, sign out on a roster, and sign in on reboarding after the dive.
There are a number of boats leaving about the same time so the dock is a mass of people seeking their assigned boat. Timing is arranged to accommodate tour ship passengers. The dives were unremarkable. There was little coral.
If you want snacks between dives, bring your own. Drinking water is available.
During the safety stop on the first dive, we were surrounded by huge numbers of unusual jelly fish. The dive masters didn't know anything about them, so they remain a mystery.
I had planned to dive a couple of days, but after one day with this dive operator and poor underwater conditions, I decided that one time was enough.
