Larry Parker owned the dive shop at the Royal Palms pier many years ago. If he's still there, I would recommend diving out of his shop.

In our humble opinion, after 120+ dives in BZ, Amigos Del Mar is as good as it gets. There are others, I am sure, who are as good, but we've stuck with Amigos for years. They will put together a discounted package including the Blue Hole for you if you give the the number of dives you plan on (1 or 2 tanks), the number of people, and skill levels. SWIMBO did the Blue Hole again back in November, and if memory serves it was about $115.

Certainly I'll ditto Amigos del Mar too, but I've just got to know how Choo got the Blue Hole trip down to only $115. Was it a snorkelling only trip for you guys?


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

KWIBMF, interesting, Larry was the very first dive master on the island, he sold out about a year or so ago, after having moved the shop to the Spindrift and he has since left the Island. He was the greatest.

Petsin: There is ALWAYS a cheaper way to get what you want. Where there's a will, there's a way. (who said that?) But remember, you always get what you pay for. If you are willing to sacrifice some ammenties, and go in a rat hole dive boat, then of course it will be cheaper! ummm... not that I recommend using lower quality services...you know, better safe than sorry. Especially when you are putting your life in their hands. eek

cambriagal, I agree, Larry's a good guy, I enjoyed diving with him. Any idea why he left?

There must be a law in S.P. that business owners must relocate every year or two.

seashell,

Oops! Once again I was talkin' when I shoulda been listening. "She Who Must Be Obeyed" has corrected me. That would be $150. And, so there's no misunderstanding here, I'm not the diver, she is. Even though the dear thing bought me a beautiful watch good to 200 meters, that is just about 665 feet deeper than I ever would agree to unless they fill those tanks with something other than air. Y'all know what I mean.
