Comments WITH REFERENCE TO COMMENTS FROM WARREN SPRUNG.

I would just like to say that I was on the Boat with this Guy and would like to give a different view of his comments. I have been diving with Indigo for 5 years now and only appreciate criticism when it is due and on this occassion it was not.

Indigo Divers offer a Pick up service but after the first day of diving with the Warren group it was clear that the only conversation was rude jokes and conversation that made me cringe so no wonder if they had a car Indigo would prefer to meet them at the boat.

As for the dive gear being stored at the rear of the Boat "HELLO is that not where it is always stored on most dive boats lol"

Following Warren's departure on one day, one of the other guests commented that they were relieved he was no longer on the boat. Having briefly met Warren before diving with Indigo, they "already knew enough about Him". I was equally offended by His course 'humour'.

Kate did sit with other divers at the front of the boat - where anyone was at liberty to join, but fortunately chose not to which for me was great.

In the pre-dive briefings, Chris explained that he would be guiding the dive & that Kate would follow the group to ensure everyone stayed together, & provide additional assistance should anyone require it. So essentially Chris plays the roll of dive guide whilst Kate oversees the group as a whole. Anyone running out of air sooner than the rest of the group would go up first (with Chris). On almost every dive this was Warren. At which point Kate would take over guiding.

This is what we saw:

May 14
North West Point: 3 spotted moray eels, 1 large green moray, 1 goldentail eel
Mitch Millers: We spent the first half of the dive (after Special Request from Warren's Group) exploring in the sand, where we showed you several tiny headshield slugs, as well as other 'critters' that even we had not seen before. Lionfish, west indian sea egg.

May 16:
Orange Canyon: 13 Caribbean Reef Squid,
Hepps Pipeline: Juvenile spotted drum (at the beginning of the dive - which Kate pointed out, just before asking you to watch your fins on the coral).lettuce slugs.

Regarding his ref to the split fins.
Kate waited for & assisted His friend Greg from the safety stop on the line, to the ladder of the boat. He appeared to be struggling
as there was a fair current running. When they reached the boat Kate pointed out that when diving in a current, split fins are not the best. You have better propulsion with regular fins when swimming against current. It was not a criticism of Gregs equipment, merely an observation & some information that he may or may not use in the future.

Finally I would like to say that every experiance with Indigo Divers is a great experiance and just every now and then you get some funny people on the boat and even I was upset to be diving with this group and tried my best to keep a distance. The only other thing that was not mentioned that I love about Indigo is you get COOKIES and Pineapple/Oranges between dives which is always a nice touch.

Happy Diving!!!!!
