My pregnant wife and I stayed at Island View Resort in Sharks Bay. On the beach, Alex from Pyramid Diving Centre recommended that we go on their boat trip. As my wife is pregnant, we were unsure weather this would be safe. Alex said that this trip would be perfectly safe as we were not diving. He also said that he would inform the crew on the boat that my wife was pregnant. So we decided to attend the boat trip. When the boat set of, we noticed that the conditions were windy. Also, the captain of the boat was driving like crazy making the boat sway all over the place. Water was gushing in making the floor slippery. He even started to steer the wheel with his feet. This might have been fun had it not been for being pregnant. Having said that, other passengers on the boat looked uncomfortable too. On many occasions, my wife nearly slipped and had to hang on thoroughly to the hand bars. When the boat came to a stop, I asked the head crew member why the captain was driving like that when there was a pregnant woman on board. He said that he was unaware of any passengers being pregnant and that Alex did not inform him of this. After the conversation, the captain began to drive the boat more carefully and the experience was much more bearable.
Lack of communication between Alex at the beach and his colleagues on the boat could have caused serious problems for my pregnant wife. Alex clearly wanted the money, made promises which he broke, then moved on to other potential customers.
For this reason, I will never use this diving center again and would not recommend to other people. Especially anyone pregnant.
