Comments Typical Keys operation, where the dive masters never get wet. The only refreshments on the boat was a cooler of water. We were told this was a "no fin boat" which meant you took your fins off on the tag line, 10 ft. or more from the boat, while the waves pushed you into the ladder (you didn't see this happening,as you were looking down, taking off your fins, rather than holding onto ladder and being aware of rise and fall,etc.) and you risked dropping your fins. The crew is there to just drive the boat and to remind you to switch tanks. On one dive, the crew giant strided someone almost on top of me. The highlight of the dive experience was , "we don't know what the current is, would one of you divers volunteer to check it out?"
