    Happy reading it is not.
    SH1T... Muppets... Presumably the crew were a bunch of poor gappies paying for the experience and when it all went to rats they couldn't cope on any level. My daughter is off on a similar trip soon and this sort of thing scares the life out of me

    I'm not sure l would have put up with being locked in, especially on a boat where the crew couldn't run an egg and spoon race, let alone a safe dive trip.

    I did my DSD in the sea and it was that experience that encouraged me to learn to dive. The difference was that it was conducted about 100m offshore, in an area of sandy bottomed, clear viz, <6m deep warm water with no current and lots of nice coral blocks nearby and there was only 3 of us with 2 staff. I think sea DSDs can work very well but most people won't have such sites available. Not sure I'd want to do one in the UK at all.

    Yeah - sea, quarry or pool are all ok - it's just that the conditions have to be sheltered, safe & predictable. There's even a couple of shore sites in the UK I'd consider appropriate.

    As I'm sure we all agree, chucking a try diver over the side of a boat into "deep" sea is recklessly inappropriate.

    I think that is your post, it's got the double exclamation and everything.
