Comments Dive Connections operates 3 boats. I have dived with them several times over the last several years. There has been a deterioration of service with this operation. They do not have a good system for diver recall or plan of action for recovering divers surfacing down current. The boats have run out of fuel and run aground several times over the last year and other dive boats report being tired of rescuing DCI divers. They offer cheap trips, but do not offer well trained DM's or captains. It is a shame to have visiting divers leave San Diego thinking DCI is representative of local dive operators. Dive at your own risk with them. There are other more professional dive boats with excellent records to choose from in San Diego.
