    Two of the dives I had this week had 20 people on them. A number of the regularly scheduled dives were canceled and charters for the cruise passengers were run in place of those dives.

    We went in two groups of ten with a contingent from Mexico comprising one group and everyone else in the other. Everything went smoothly for us. I was the only one booked on the two tank south coast dive on Friday so it was combined with the Renaissance airplane dive. The dive master and I went to the harbor reef then we picked up everyone else behind the row of little shops downtown for the dive on the airplanes.

    20 divers on a boat is too much.There is supposed to be a dive master for every six divers,your saying that there were only two.When I dove with them there were only two also.Next year I'm going with Unique,I would try Jads but they are to far.

    Avis,was on my credit card bill this month,and guess what the bill was for only $200.43 this is what I was quoted and this is what I paid.A word to the wise make sure you have all you conformation papers when you check in.Make sure you tell them the rate you were quoted and that is what you are going to pay.When they swipe your card THAT IS WHAT YOU PAY...If you are getting a van don't take the one that is beat up with dirty seats ......in it you will find surprises. Take the red Kia V10 plenty of room and runs great.
