I sent a few emails to Dive Sea World a week and a half before my trip using their contact page email. After no response in 2 days I sent another message through the contact form on the website. Roy Watkins contacted me back almost immediately so I thought it was just an issue with the email. I made arrangements for 2 of us to go out and do a couple of dives one day during our trip. I was told in one email we would be picked up at 8:45 at our resort. A later email changed it to 8 am. We were ready to go a little before 8. We didn't expect Roy to be there at exactly 8. This is the Caribbean after all. Still no Roy at 8:30. I went to check the email I had received and saw the 8:45 reference and thought that must be the time he's coming. By 9 am I got someone at our resort to call Roy. When I got Roy on the phone he told me conditions were very bad and they were not going out today. He said he sent me an email telling me this. I didn't have email access so couldn't verify this, but when I returned home I did not find an email from Roy canceling the trip. But here's the best part, I went to the watersports booth at the resort we were staying at and talked to them about diving and they happened to not have anything scheduled so we went right out and did a dive. Sea conditions were great. Less than 1' waves and visibility was at least 50 feet. My guess is Roy didn't have anyone else going out and didn't want to waist his time with just 2 divers. After reading other reviews here about Roy and his operation I'm glad he canceled on us. I would likely not have gone out even if he had shown up because we analyze all of our tanks for carbon monoxide and would likely have come up with a very high reading based on what I've read in other reviews. I don't know how this guy stays in business.
