    Any idea where I can get a fill for my pony in Ishigaki? I am diving with Prime and the response I got when asked was "No tech diving."

    Let me ask some friends...... *facepalm* at that response.... similar to what I got when I showed up somewhere with my sidemount BCD.

    I was thinking the same thing, "I wonder how they would react if I showed up in my sidemount BC and started rigging up the cylinders for SM?"

    My general impression was that the majority of the operators deal only with tourists who only occasionally dive or people doing "Try Scuba" and being pulled along. When I was in Ishigaki, my maximum depth was 15m. I was pleasantly surprised that my dive times were longer than the typical 40 minute ones that seem to prevalent here. There are plenty of operators on Ishigaki, maybe you should try another one?
