I overheard a conversation with a DM this weekend and one of my crew about a diver. Before I tell you the story I would like to know if anyone has proof of any certifying agency that tells their DM's they have any authority on or off a boat.
This means telling a diver he/she cannot dive. Has to dive with a buddy. Does not have the right gear, ECT. I would like the pro. Not a he said/she said. I have seen, in a Naui Hand Book for DM's that they only have the authority to advise the diver to do something, or try to talk them out of doing something.
Thanks for your help.
