And just to confuse you I would say Dive Action, at St Keverne.  Gary is a bit of a character but we have had some good dives with him and he certainly knows the area and the diving.

Actually, I never knew that the guys at Porthkerris were called Action Divers......I wonder who came first?  Bit naughty on someones part I would say!

They are also known as Porthkerris divers...

I suspect one of them was a spin off from the other and having a similar name might have helped with initial business.

Heard good things about Dive Action.  Only ever dived with Porthkerris/Action divers though and they were very good.  The shorediving where they are based is pretty good as well.

BTW.  Dive Actions number is 01326 280719

A good friend is a part time instructor with Looe Divers - and recommends it as being good. Also, it is within easy range of the James Eagan Layne (sp?).

If interested I can get their details or I am sure they have their own web site.

Finless, no offence to your friend, but my experience with Looe Divers was terrible.  It was earlier this year and I wrote a detailed letter of complaint to the boss, who has not deigned to even acknowledge it.  I would never recommend them to anyone after that.

Any good business would respond to a customer complaint, even if they disagreed with it.  If they don't it shows how much they care about you once they have your cash, in my opinion.

BTW - the letter included points that were, in the opinion of our group, downright dangerous, not merely inconvenient.

Cheers

Lou

Lou,

Sorry to hear of the bad experience.

I will quiz my mate on it as I expect that when I get my act together I will actually take my diving kit next time I go to see him. I am not sure he will know anything abt it as I say he is an occassional part timer.

Is there anything you can let me know abt the probs - just the bare bones. E mail direct if you can.

I will not pass the info on to anyone I will just ask my mate if he knows about it. If you would prefer not to drag it up again then no worries.

My main concern is "if I go what should I look out for". The only thing that is likely to concern me would be danger with regards to being dropped in or being picked up.
