Response from Chantel P, Manager at Full-Day Catalina Island Scuba Diving Tour from La Romana
Responded Jan 14, 2019
Firstly, I would like to address that we are not a Dive Center, we are an Excursion company that provides service to other companies for example Dive Centers and Tour Operators. We run day tours to Catalina Island snorkeling and diving, we provide the service of boat, beach, lunch, drinks and equipment. We are a family run business and always put our clients first, not profit. We provide a warm and friendly environment for all our clients. You mention “It may help to reduce the number of non-professional scuba diving services some day in the future” I would like to say everyone has to start somewhere, from the basic to advance, you mention you been diving over 20 years; however, you have had to start from the basics. Prior to your arrival you were informed by Chantel to question in the marina for our captain, she also mentioned that the boats stated Passion Paradise clearly identified on each boat. A member of our crew responded and said to you that Chantel would be here in a few moments and you were in the right place. When Chantel arrived in the marina, two group had arrived at the same time, which meant she would need to organize each group and direct them to the correct boat, which meant she would need to Liaison with her colleagues. As you stated “She spent more of the time with other stuff members and not with us, divers or snorkelers” this was not correct, staff need to communicate to ensure staff members are aware of there duties. As in all business. “Communication amongst colleagues is the base of any successful business. Prior to your excursion through email and telephone sizes where discussed, as stated above we are not a Dive Center and we make sure that all equipment is sent prior to your arrival… when clients arrive to the marina Chantel introduces herself and works through the list to ensure all clients are aboard. Chantel will need to question clients if they are diving or snorkeling it is a standard procedure. Divers would be introduced to the instructor/ dive master, which will carry out briefings and equipment prior to entering the water. I would like to state that we have more than 1 dive master that works with Passion Paradise. Chantel introduced you to your dive master who would be taking you diving on this day so for this reason Chantel is not required to organize diving drill sessions for you at any time as the dive master you where diving with carried out this with you. All divers that come are asked to present us with a certification, those clients in advance that have a DSD certification have a different instructor. Ever client is required to fill in a waver form and medical form along with their license. As I mentioned earlier, we are an excursion company and we provide diving to those with a minimum of open water. Dive centers that send clients to Catalina Island
