Comments We were not asked to see our C-cards. They had us set up the equipment on the shore and then they loaded it on the boat for us. The weather was extremely warm and I was quite hot trying to get ready as the boat had no shade and they were telling us to hurry up and get ready. I had not done a backward roll from a boat before and they were not willing to help me do this. (I felt like they were drill sargents saying, hurry up!) The dive was not very well explained in advance other than to follow the divemaster. They "forgot" the water and didn't have any snacks. (Thank goodness we always carry water just in case) The boat was made so that everything in the bag got wet as there were not any places on the boat for dry storage. There was only a 15 minute surface interval between dives.
The highlight was getting to see a green sea turtle cleaning station. However, overall there were too many problems with the dive operators. They were very helpful on the phone and e-mail. It just didn't carry over to in person.
