Careless and Dangerous

Boat was broken when I arrived, so we got stuck in port an extra day while the crew sourced a replacement part from France. The first four dives were in industrial/biological waste dump sites. Not a great start to the trip. My first dive guide (B) didn't attend dive briefings, changed a dive plan at the last minute, failed to explain the change, and took our group into dangerous current conditions. I hadn't been assigned a dive buddy, so when I aborted the dive a few minutes in, I surfaced alone. I don't think B realized I was missing, and I had a nice long float (after completing a solo safety stop) because the surface boat didn't see me or pick me up for over 10 minutes. Changed guides after that. The new guide (T) changed a setting on my dive computer, but couldn't explain why he made the change, so I switched it back when he wasn't looking (that computer's worked perfectly and kept me safe for over 80 dives, I'm sure it didn't need his help). T frequently ignored his own dive briefings. Briefed limits of 30m, 60 minutes, or 50 bar were exceeded on most dives. Several dives exceeded 30m depth, in violation of Maldives law. Surface boat came within 1m of hitting me and my dive buddy at the end of a safety stop, when the pilot blew in directly through the middle of our group. Guess he wasn't looking for bubbles. I raised some of these issues with the crew during the trip, but got the distinct impression they didn't care. Don't dive with this crew. You can do better.

Great diving week

The boat was refurbished not too long ago and it shows :). Room and shower was better than my home. I could have stayed for a year :). Choice of dive sites were amazing. Boat crew was very friendly and gave us a great service overall.
