Comments The advertised internet service is provided by an outside vender. My computer had an Airport Card for wirlless service, so all I needed was the password to access the local network. The provider required me to meet him in person to establish service, but did not show up at the agreed upon time. His only regularly scheduled times to be in the office were during scheduled boat dives, so I never was able to get the service. I bought time on the resort's antiquated computers which were so slow I could only get off two email messages in 30 minutes. I was shut down without warning and messages being sent were lost.

I entered the slide show contest but couldn't be there in person as our night dive at the Salt Pier had been rescheduled for that evening. I won, but never received any prize. When I came to the dive office the next day, I was told that the manager had to give me the prize, but he was not there the three times I came by the dive office. My flight home was the next morning; I left my email and snail mail addresses, but I was never contacted.
