Thread: Shocking.

  1. #1

    Shocking.

    7 divers lost for three and a half hours. SEVEN. If, if, this is true these guys need to lose their certification. There are enough other reviews questioning the quality of the dive shop for me to suspect there is at least a grain of truth here. It's a good thing I dislike Sandals for other reasons and will never darken the doors of any of their resorts.

    And without actual verification... it doesn't sound made up.

    possible embellished thou dehydration and sun exposure sound a bit extreme after only 3.5 hours ? been years since I dived and then it was only a few times mainly at the swimming pool and a few cold water drops but seem a bit much still ?
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Bottled dive air is extraordinarily dry. You are dehydrated when you finish your dive. Add three and a half hours in a wet suit fighting a current. Yes, you will be dehydrated. The past two weeks it has been sunny and in the low 30s. So, yes, exposure is a definite possibility. I overheat in a 2mm wetsuit in a cool water swimming pool.

    All of that is almost irrelevant though. What this is about is that if true, this resort made a whole series of shockingly bad decisions that are well outside the parameters of safe dive procedures and then lost 7 divers and never found them. They were rescued by a fishing boat.

    cool don't remember being dehydrated but think the dives was like half hour and in cold water think mostly at a place called stone cove but like it was twenty odd years ago now so was not as it is now seems a lot easier now days to do then back then plus bet nothing is the same as when I did well maybe the signing the same


    yes you think their be more then one complaint on it thou mean I would have started off with it first then at the end and he seems to build tempo to so hmmm something maybe did go on but the nerd in me wants more facts before thinking more on it
