THE RIG: Brilliant, no thrills accomodation, very comfy & clean. Staff always smiling and a great team spirit. Food was good, unless you're a veggie where even though you'd specified that you dont eat meat/fish, you still had to ask to be catered for and even then, 99% of the time it's tofu which after 6 days was a struggle.
DIVING: Loved all the artificial reefs, house reef and Sipadan was just awesome!!
DIVING ORIENTATION: Great! PADI / Dive practices read out. Gloves not allowed, Dont touch, Dont prod anything etc ...LOVE IT!!! ..BUT then a day or so later, we had a few new people on our dive with cameras, wearing gloves. Our DM didnt say anything, so I took it that this person had some kind of skin allergy or something. That dive, we had the misfortune to witness, not one but 4 divers, lying on, grabbing hold of and breaking corals ..we were all in shock. We couldnt believe our eyes. We all signalled the divers to get off, dont touch but they were totally oblivious. I was almost in tears! Not even the DM intervened and nothing was said back on the boat.
Anyway, back on the rig and having calmed down, I approached a member of staff. Asking about the NO GLOVE policy, saying that it was a brill idea and wondering why people still wearing gloves? He replied "It's so they can have a tighter grip on their camera" ..I then went on to explain what we'd witnessed. The staff member didnt like this at all "this didnt happen" ..I replied "we'd filmed I'll show you" then went on to suggested that DM's should include something in their non existant breifings and debreifings. The staff member got really stoppy and was in total denial ..then suddenly got a phone call and walked off.
