My wife and I are doing our class/pool sessions here in the states and plan on doing our certifications dives while on vacation. Are there any shops that have SSI affilitation? OR does it really matter?

Also any recommends on shops that cater to the first time non-hardcore diver are appreciated and will be offered a free Belikin on me at BC's!

I'm not a hardcore diver myself (yet) and plan on getting my certification in June. My past experience on AC (3 years back) was just for snorkeling and general info with Blue Hole Dive. They were very friendly and patient. "My" DM has since left Blue Hole so I've been chatting w/Gaz @ Gaz Cooper's (good references on the board). He's been very helpful & has always answered my e's quickly. Not sure about the SSI affiliation, tho. Actually, I haven't really heard anything bad about any of the dive shops! Good luck! Have a great trip! Sharon

We can do any referral as long as you bring the Universal Referral form with you. Our affiliation with Reef Diver's, Hustler and a few other places on the island means we can help. Drop us a line at mtoc@btl.net or visit our website at www.barefootwatersports.net. I'm sure between Roberto, Larry and Billy we can help you.
