hi denny shane. i know who you are from reading your post on this board, and i appreciate your input. i have already booked the trip to JE (in spite of how you were treated there, sorry 'bout that), and i know you would know the inside scoop. Their brochure still says padi 5 star. i understand seaventures(?) and others are pretty good. should i have my husband use a different dive shop(i dont dive).there should be many of them. he plans on 6-8 dives.

is there anything else i should know about JE(besides mosquitos)? i've heard its pretty nice, but i bet they're missing you...no one answers their message board anymore! perhaps i should have talked to you before...

if you are there in late august, i would buy you dinner or a drink somewhere for your trouble. thanks and talk to you (ihope) soon. thanks.

Hi Jane...
Despite the fact that they are not a 5 Star PADI anymore, it is still a pretty decent dive shop. Steve who operates the shop has been doing his best. Your husband will feel comfortable doing his dives from the shop there.

Unfortunately I will not be there at the same time but appreciate your offer. I may go back home to Philly for a quick visit.

Don't worry, you'll have a good time. Say hi to Jim the manager for me.

**get out!!!!youre from philly too??? i have lived in the philly suburbs all my life, now in bucks county (doylestown). too weird if you would be here while we're there...if you come to philly, we could have that drink by my backyard pool! we'd be back aug. 27th. funny how the world gets smaller.

thanks for being nice and answering my q's, i know it is an uncomfortable position for you. again, i'm sorry for how your situation was handled there. i've been dealing with jonathan, and he's been fairly helpful.

i feel better about Steve & the dive shop.i was a little concerned. this is frank's 3rd dive vacation, but he works really hard and i want it to be great. i hear they are hand feeding rays at mexico rocks.

thanks again and bye. e-mail me (Jane)at frankm@enter.net if you want that drink here, i plan to bring back some Cane Juice!

ps - my dad's name is denny too!

Have a good time and I'll be very interested in your comments when you come back.
