I would have to agree - their communication is impectible and they keep telling me I'll pass - I would definitely recommend them - I'm not even certified yet .

We'll be on AC in the first week of November as well, looking to do our open water cert dives. Finished the pool/class work and tests this weekend. Lets keep this thread alive, good to have a list of good operators handy

Hi BobW,

I'm in the same situation that you are - looking to do my check out OW dives in San Pedro. Both Peter at Protech and Billy at Hustlers have been incredibly generous in their encouragement and offers of help. I'm absoutely sure that you can't go wrong in choosing either of these great guys. laugh

Are Chuck and Robbie the same pair that worked for Blue Hole Dive Center? If so, they are great! Nice guys, experienced ... and fun! (Isn't that what diving is all about?) I did my first dives as a certified diver with them, and they were the most memorable.

Chuck and Robbie did work with Blue Hole Dive Center. During the low season they built a dock and dive shop of their own which is located 2 docks north of Hustler dock.

Blue Hole dive center had a presence on Front Street. Kent, who is a great guy, did not take people diving or on excursions; he simply booked them. Just like a whole lot of other people, such as your resort, do.

It would be nice if some one had the where with all to put together a comprehensive list of all the dive operators; especially the instructors. By this I do mean ALL, not just the ones who pay to be on a web site.

Choosing a dive instructor is kind of like picking a dance partner; different strokes for different folks. I just had a thought!!! I think I will put up a poll where every one can list who they would choose if they were just now getting certified or going for an advanced or specialty certification. Iíll try it.
cool
