I have done over 2,000 dives and was looking forward to doing something special. The operator advertised a plane dive and wreck dives. When I asked about doing the plane, I was told that it was a deep dive. I advised them that not only was I a Dive Master but I was also A Dive Rescue Specialist and have done lots of wreck dives also. I was told that they would get back to me before the dive, about three days out. Not only did they not contact me, but when I contacted them back, I was told that they were not going to do the airplane. As for wanting to do a wreck dive, I was not given the option.
I do not smoke and my regulator tasted like an ashtray as well as was hard to breath off until I got down. I was told that the regulator had just been serviced and that there was nothing wrong with it.
The dive instructor was nice and saw to it that those of us with more experience were given more time down, after the new divers had to surface. I appreciated this. The diving was good with turtles and lots of coral to see.
When I got back to the shop, I enquired about the wreck dives and the airplane dive. I was given more excuses why they couldn't do the more experienced dives and went away feeling like they advertised as hype with no intention of doing the type of dives that they advertised! Great for beginners but I wouldn't recommend them to someone who wants more ou8t of a dive. Ross H.
