岩, 29/02/2024

这次船宿有点不开心,客观来讲,我觉得Oliver就是那个男的潜导,他的专业度是我觉得还挺认可的,每一天briefing都特别的细致,但是就是,我觉得不知道是跟他性格有关系还是怎样,反正他们就不是那种特别有人情味儿的那种吧,比较刻板。我觉得分组有点儿问题,4个潜导带24人,两个组,分组整个过程没有了解过每个潜水员潜数和最近一次潜水时间(反正没问我们),所以我觉得他们没有办法按照潜水员经验分组,导致每一潜只能迁就“多数”潜水员情况规划潜水计划,因为每一潜几乎都是比较大的流同组12人里8个人遇到流都控制不了自己所以每一潜都只能跟着流飘,中途潜导没办法停下来,因为多数潜水员没办法停下来,所以像我们这样想多在一些觉得有意思的地方停留的时候潜导能够帮我们找东西等等肯定不可能,只能靠自己。加上两个潜导照顾那么多人,应该优化一下流程可能会更合理,这样以后再去玩儿的人在水下也可以根据不同水平更个性化的照顾到,应该客人感受会更好。然后有一天我因为在40米停了5秒所以被禁止下一潜潜水,我一直解释我不是主观去的40米,是看到了鲨鱼兴奋而已,而且发现40米5秒就赶紧上升到31米,这样说也没有用,他的老婆(另外一个潜导)说我是故意破坏规则,carman认为我是诚心破坏规则所以禁止我下一潜[Lol] 禁止我潜水因该提前告知我,在做第三潜潜水讲解的时候我也参加了也没和我说,当天的第三潜是10米的护士鲨潜,应该不是为了我的安全考虑,如果出于对我安全考虑我能理解,你可以单独的和我说明情况,为了更好的管理,告诉我们下一潜被罚不能潜水,我和邢同学也不需要再准备第三潜了,当时邢同学已经在托尼船上穿完衣服了,他们却拦着我不让我上托尼船,最后邢也下了托尼船,他们态度是指责和批判的,这个处理方式和态度我也有点儿不太能理解,我觉得他们夫妻两个人在船上同时工作这个船公司是很欠考虑的,船上的氛围有点诡异,就是吐槽一下子,本来护士鲨那潜也不是特别想去,但是就觉得毕竟也是服务行业,沟通方式没必要这样,让人觉得出发点不是为了客人安全,而是因为影响了他们工作,至于要求客人下一潜不能潜水这个依据是什么我也不太理解,再加上觉得确实分组方式没办法保障不同水平潜水员都能玩儿得开心,我看潜水经验不太多的潜水员也因为关注不到,都挺小心翼翼,每潜都奋力挣扎,自己玩儿不好还特别怕影响别人,但是目前这个分组方式确实也没办法,水平参差不齐都混在一起,有经验的不能玩儿,没经验的也不敢玩儿,中间的就比较听话,整体氛围都略显严肃。下次一定提醒我们不要上德国人管理的船,特别是两口子管理的更要慎重了,还是法国人更性情一些,潜水也能开心一些。

Good boat and dhoni, everything working. Great boat and dive crew, food good. Cons: 26 divers from one dhoni, too many divers in the water at one time but despite that it was very well organised.
