I'm sad to write this review as these people were nice people and very friendly. However, I feel that there were several issues that in hindsight have made me feel the need to warn others about.
1) broken air gauge
- after returning from a deep dive- (about 35 m) one persons air gauge still registered at 150 bar- on this dive most people were very low on air (by the end I was on 30 bar) one person ran out of air completely (and then had to use the instructors spare respirator) after consistently warning the instructors about what we were on. We weren't asked how much we were on by the instructors as in my experience you normally turn around and make your way back at 100bar and ascend at 50 bar. There was no 3 minute stop at 5 meters.
2) got lost
The dive master- a very experienced man who did apologise to us when we got back on the boat, saying he got "disorientated" - went in the wrong direction, got lost and started swimming very fast - so much so it was hard to keep up- we were swimming so fast to keep up we were short of breath under water as one would be whilst running.
3) unprofessional and unorganised-
There was a lot of waiting around! We left at 9.15 from our pick up point- and got back at 3.15- after 2 dives. My boyfriend had to help with the manual work with organising the tanks etc. we were told pick up and drop off were included but they were reluctant to give us a lift back saying they were "too busy".
One of the instructors urinated off the side of the boat for all to see rather than getting in the water discretely.
4) mixed abilities- there were some people who had not dived in a very long time with us (one guy had not dived in 9 years) - it is my understanding that it is customary under these circumstances to complete a refresher dive before attempting such challenging deep/ wreck dives.
As I said- they were friendly people- but I think that Aegean Divers need to make some changes.
