Evaluation

*Average:    3.52
Enough can not be said about the great staff there. I had planned a weekend dive with a friend, and we were to meet their on a Saturday. It is a 5 hr drive for me to get there. After my wife and I and another friend checked into the hotel Friday night I got a call from my dive buddy saying he couldn't make it. We went to the Springs Saturday afternoon so I could teach our friend to snorkel. When we went up to the office to get a soda we were talking to one of the staff and he asked how my dive was. I told him what happened, and then he excused himself. He returned with another guy introduced him to me. He went out of his way to find me a dive buddy for the day. When you go diving there don't forget to take along a couple of hotdogs to feed the big catfish that hang around the dive platforms.
