Excellent talk this evening on DCI and dive safety generally, with many fresh insights from the lecturer who flew down from Playa del Carmen in Mexico specially. A shame that it was so poorly attended - only two dive centres were represented, and neither of those the big ones. Tomorrow and Wednesday are devoted to DAN O2-Provider courses. Let's hope more people show up for those (though the maximum for each is 8).

Just next to the airstrip apron in San Pedro, opposite the Maya Air terminal. The only one in the country. That's why we chose to open the first technical dive centre in Belize in San Pedro.

Pedro2, who arranged for these presentations and courses to be offered?

The chamber in San Pedro is a very nice facility. I've only toured it fortunately. I encourage anyone diving in San Pedro to pay the extra buck or so a tank to support the chamber even if they have DAN insurance.

Pedro 2 - thanks for having a DAN 02 kit on your boats as many in San Pedro don't. Also, thanks for facilitating awareness on the island and keeping the sport safe

Seashell - the Chamber initiated it, and we've helped them out with some equipment. Robert - thanks for the testimonial. Safety is very important to us.

I don't believe I've ever been diving with an op on San Pedro that didn't have O2 aboard. That said, I haven't been diving with all of them and I didn't always make them show it to me, if they represented that it was aboard.
