    I didn't say it was a reasonable effort but its the owner's of the pier prerogative to charge to use the pier. I know if I owned a pier I would want to be able to say who can use it and who can't and how much I can charge people.

    I probably would just use the resort's dive op. If I am staying at an AI (and I love AI) I want everything to be easy.

    Have you stayed there? If so why was it so bad?

    So do RR guests have to pony up the $2 for the Paradise pier or was that only for the Secrets pier?

    I don't think there is any fee - the RR owners have made arrangements for their guests.

    Well, it's really not that simple and not that cut and dry - and piers are federally zoned - so no, they can't actually.

    And for what it's worth, we as dive operators provide hotel pier pick-ups as a courtesy, so when that courtesy costs us time, hassle and money - it is not a courtesy we can provide. In MANY
    destinations, you load at one central location, like a marina. Of course you are entitled to your opinion and choice.

    Yes - November 2015.. My biggest complaints are the fact that there are no dive lockers, no rinse tanks... And the place is so spread out, you have to haul your gear what feels like 2 miles uphill both directions. lol

    Plus, I don't care for AI resort food and drinks

    You would be surprised how many outside ops pick up there. They come and go all day long. A lot of people will be affected, and not just divers either.

    The easiest way to charge would be to just take the room number each day. At checkout I have to give them 2 or 3 dollars for using the phone anyway, so they get 10 or 15 or whatever. Pretty simple really. When people make things difficult there’s usually a reason. I doubt they will make it simple.

    I hope dive ops do not see us a “time, hassle and money”....
