What I look for in a Dive Operator:
I expect the operator to deliver the same levels of service that I offer my customers. I will opt for a dive operator who seems organized and anticipates the photographer's needs; time management and communication is key. I also prefer to have dive guides who know the sites and currents well, this way divers expectations can be easily met.
