Seems that this shop is big on blaming the diver for its issues instead of taking responsibility for their actions. Smoking crew?they have to find out from a diver? where is the rest of the crew when this person was smoking??

None of the crew smoked on our trip and were all really friendly and professional, focussing on safety and ensuring we got the most out of our day. In fact the whole dive shop was well run and professional when we used them.
