Indeed what you say is what I suspected. But shallow is a good thing if no hyperbaric chamber close by - also good for kiddos, the Intro class and refreshers.

Then, to make matters worse, the dive offered was a rather shallow one ... not something most certified divers would be challenged with.
If they had offered a Discover SCUBA program, I think they would have had lots of participation in the dive program on HMC.
