What I look for in a Dive Operator:
When I travel to a dive destination, I go to dive. So, what I hope to see in the operator and in the operation is an honest enthusiasm for diving. I love going to places where people are excited about what their diving has to offer and what they have to share with their guests. I want water time, and I hope to be able to dive when I want to within reason depending upon their staffing and to dive for as long as is safe.
