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
