The morning started off a little rough with we had to make a hike to Samantha's pickup. Because of the time of day, she parked away from the cruise ship pier due to the traffic. That was completely understandable, but we had all our own gear (except tanks) and it was too heavy for me to carry that far. Thank goodness my husband is a strong man and could handle both our equipment bags. After completing all the paperwork and payment process, we're told to don our wet suits prior to getting in the boat because it wasn't big enough to allow freedom of movement. That was an understatement! It was an old beat-up wooden boat that would only allow one person at a time to stand up in. There were two crew, Allen was our dive master for my husband and I. There was one other gentleman that would take the other two passengers snorkeling while we dove. We first dove Scott's Head which was a fantastic wall dive! Unbelievable beautiful! However, Allen was difficult to keep up with. He swam ahead of us and it was up to us to keep up with him....it felt like we were running a race. He pointed out nothing and wouldn't allow us to go slow enough to really look at anything and there was so much to see! Next we went to Champagne and it was ok. Obviously the bubbles were fascinating and Allen did make it a point direct my hand over one of the larger vents to feel the warmth escaping from the vent. Other than that, the dive was fairly unremarkable. When we were taken back to their pier, there was a really nice dive boat there. Not sure, but it sounded like in listening to their conversation that it broke free in the storm the night before and they had just recovered it. I can only assume that is the boat we should have been on. We could have forgiven all, but unfortunately our dive master was so lacking. Scott's Head alone would have been enough to have made this a great dive, but we were rushed through it. There was only two of us so there was no excuse other than he wanted to get it over with.
