What I look for in a Dive Operator:
Experience---I want to dive with people who have, at the very least, as much diving experience as I do. They do this for a living, right? Local knowledge, Flexibility, Safety, and of course, Fun - that's why we dive in the first place. A good dive staff needs to be able to maintain a friendly and helpful demeanor, despite any number of potential problems that may (and usually do) arise. A surly dive operator can ruin a trip.
