What I look for in a Dive Operator:
This might sound funny but I enjoy diving with operators that enjoy diving too. I like when dive operators know the behavior of the animals, can read the local currents, have tide charts available and dive according to conditions. I also like it when the operator can judge the group and stay with the divers that need attention and leave the experienced divers to dive. I like to be treated like the responsible diver that I am and relish in longer dives. I have spent many a days diving 90 minute dives all day long...these are my favorite! I also like it when we can dive the same site more than once! I like being offered five dives a day...with flexibility and fun!
