  1. Crowley's Blog - Things I Don't Want to Hear From Divers - No.1

    by , October 18th, 2012 at 02:21 PM
    It's high season here in Sharm so I haven't had a lot of free time but this was something that cropped up in conversation yesterday and I think is to some extent representative of some of the problems inherent in the modern-day, agency-based dive industry - and partly why some divers sneer at the concept - more about those folks later!
