A few points in response:

I saw only one group of snorkelers that was organized and guided. They conducted themselves well and weren't a problem. But the majority of snorkelers did not seem to have any supervision, and no, they did not follow the rules. They showed no sign of even knowing there are rules.

Snorkelers were sitting and resting on the lower steps, as if it was the side of a pool. They had to be asked to move when divers needed to get by.

At any given time there were eight to ten of them standing in the water, or swimming, or splashing around near bottom of the stairs. Some were floating on large inflated tubes. I don't know if this is against the rules, but it made entry and exits very difficult for divers.

In my posts I made no suggestion that that divers take their business elsewhere. That may have been someone else's post.

Market forces will determine where people choose to spend their diving dollars. I can speak only for myself. I've been diving at Casino Point for almost twenty years, so you can't convince me everything is all right when my own experience says it is not.

My friends and I will not be going back to the place formally called "The Dive Park" any time soon.
