Comments Unfortunately for us the boss was not on site due to a personal emergency. On the day of our arrival wind swept in from the SW and remained until the day we left. The boat captain did not want to take us out--because of the wind he claimed, but more likely because we were too few to make it worthwhile. We did go on one dive--24 divers on a small boat. Dive operation personnel did not seem real anxious to serve the divers. Divemaster on boat had no idea who was in the water and how much air they had. Boat captain was a bit "short" with some divers. Photos of the wrecks in the area (including the "Baron Gautsch") were impressive and made us want to dive. Too bad we came towards the end of the summer season. Food on site was reasonably priced, but nothing special; good meals in town. Accommodation was substandard. Locals were friendly; English and German widely spoken. Limited public transportation; long drive from Germany; accessible from Venice by boat. The leader of our group has dived here 5 or 6 times--he says it is good--certainly has to be better than this experience.
