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.
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.
