Comments This dive operation is small and the only one in this area,Very friendly, Had to transfer to second boat to go out to reef. Was not pleased with divemaster, strong current- other diver came up one mile away, divemaster never missed him. They gave a boat breifing and never followed. Other divers on boat did not make second dive, they just asked to be taken to shore. No O2 -first aid kit or fire ext.on board, asked about. They said they are only 5 mints. from shores did not need. they had an electrical problem, just wired it together until it smoked...Very concerned about diver safety with this operation.We canceled our remaing two days of diving.
