I take offense at the CDNN and others saying that Steve has lied, scammed people with his liquor store, and sold overpriced condos at the expense of the environment.
While I did not agree with the shark feeding, I have been diving with he and Ocean Frontiers for over 10 years, and have been on over a hundred dives with them. Wonder who it was that spearheaded the more recent moorings on the east end to protect the reefs?
Liquor store scam? Was it not real liquor people bought? Over priced condos? Gosh, if they are not priced competetively, why do they sell?
Lying about doing everything they can to keep east end diving pristine and untouched? Have you ever PERSONALLY been on a dive boat briefing with their staff, or been underwater with them when a divemaster scolds a diver for touching something?
Finally, diving is a sport with inherent risks. Don't want to have your parachute not open..don't skydive! Don't want to have your bungee stretch to far...don't jump! Don't want to experience an embolism or other underwater trauma...don't dive!
Instead of always blaming others, how about blaming ourselves for the misfortunes that happen to us? And instead of badmouthing people for providing a service that people are willing to pay for, how about celebrating them?
