It refers to the personal attention given to our divers with an ideal ratio between instructors and divers. We prefer to have smaller groups that get more personal attention instead of larger groups doing "cattle diving." If you are a novice diver, or just haven't been diving in a while, our instructors will take the time to go over skills with you in the shallows of the ocean to make sure you are 100% comfortable and confident before going on dives. There is no rush with the Resort's program; we do this at your pace. Our training program is conducted at the highest level of professionalism. We offer a Try Scuba program for you to experience diving under the direct supervision of an instructor. After teaching you basic skills in shallow water and going over some information that every diver needs to know, you go on a dive with your instructor as your dive buddy. After this introduction to scuba, you decide if you want to continue training and become a certified diver. Careful not to rush through the courses, our dive instructors have your safety, confidence and enjoyment first on their minds. What is most important to us is that when you are certified, we know that you have received the best possible training for life long enjoyment of the sport. Our business and reputation are built on the quality of divers that we have been training for over thirty years. Dive students will learn in the comfort of a safe and controlled environment under the care and supervision of our experienced dive instructors. The Open Water Diver certification courses we conduct are taught to the standards prescribed by the RSTC (Recreational Training Council) of which SSI, NASDS, PADI, RMCA, SCUBA, IDEA, and PDIC are all members. This means that your course will contain the same information, dives, and exercises that you would be taught in stateside courses and that the certification received will be recognized worldwide. We have chosen to teach under the SSI, Scuba School International's system because this program gives more experienced instructors greater flexibility as to precisely how the course is conducted On our dives, we do all the work and you have all the fun. Your equipment is checked, prepared, and loaded on the boat... even your mask is cleaned for you.

After the Blue Hole, we dive two other wall sites at Lighthouse Reef to explore some of the most entrancing marine life the sea has to offer.
