These scuba and snorkeling companies should be regulated as there are too many incidents attributed to lack of supervision and personnel.

Great idea. While we're at it, let's tack on a 10 service fee to cover the cost of said nanny service.

kiragirl - Before you start making false accusations, might want to wait for the results of the investigation. Was the person a good swimmer, any health conditions, etc?. Rookies always jump to conclusions, later on backtracking big time.

Regardless of his physical condition or water skills, he drowned. That MUST mean there weren't anyone with him. And that was my comment. Please save your insults to yourself!
