Comments This was my worst dive experience ever, a limit of 60 feet was imposed on the 1st dive for no real reason and even though great coral and fish were located around 80 feet you were not allowed to go.You had to follow the dive master who pointed out a small white tip reef shark, but otherwise just watched the group to make sure everyone stayed together (all 4 of us)and stayed at 60 feet. The second dive was limited to 40 feet and 1 hr total time which by the time we hit the water was only about 45 min and thus I returned to the boat with 1400 PSI. The divemaster was not very knowlegeable about the dive and no real briefing was given other than don't go below 60 feet/40 feet. The whole trip was a cattle call and geared for snorklers. Food was ok and snorklers had a good time. I took a later dive with Mike Severens and this was a much better dive experience, which I would highly recommend.
