The dive industry does not adhere to its own safety recommendations...

Re: "PADI recommends that divers who complete the course restrict their depth to 12m/40ft. PADI also recommends that Open Water divers restrict their depth to 18m/60ft. Yet almost everyone, divers and dive professionals alike, ignore such recommendations. Everyone knows that. PADI KNOWS THAT."  Stanford Suzuki

The dive industry--meaning dive centers and live-aboard operators like Mike Ball, Peter Hughes and the Aggressor Fleet--do not adhere to industry safety recommendations.  They are not required to and for the most part, they don't.  That's one of the points Mr. Suzuki made in the CDNN editorial.

So it's not just the resorts that ignore the recommendations--the entire dive industry ignores the recommendations. The message from the companies that actually run the dive boats is loud and clear: "Let's not let some legalistic mumbo jumbo mess up the dive plan (and our profit margin)".
