hey, i just got through diving with a pair of Germans for a whole week and they seemed perfectly OK to me! Although, i agree absolutely that overweening supervision on the part of the guides/outfitters/whatever is something to be avoided. We stayed at two different resorts in Indonesia and i got chewed out at one place (Thalassa Divers, Santika Hotel) for ditching the group (my reply was a polite "fuck you, i had to spend 14 minutes photographing Anemone fishes and their anemone and any serious underwater photog will tell you that can't be done in just 30 seconds) and at the other place (Murex, the best!) we all hopped in the water, and surfaced a quarter mile apart an hour and a half later, to be cheerfully picked up by the boat crew.
