Blame the resort managers/owners rather than the certified divers! The divers you encounter having bad buoyancy and trim are those who only dive whilst on holiday and obviously need to fine tune skills after a period of inactivity. As a dive guide have you insisted that these divers undergo a check out dive or refresher course before agreeing to take them on board?
