Training and Certification
Dive Master vs Instructor
Arthur, might want to recheck your facts there. A DM cannot teach and needs to through a 10 day to 2 week course followed by 2 days of oral, in water and theory exams. I have found that a lot of people think a DM is higher than an instructor..... sorely mistaken. A DM only needs 60 dives, an instructor needs at least 100.
Tim, I worked for Peter Hughes...... OOW son, OOW.
Charter guests who charter us and want to dive go with local operators, not us crew.
just my .02
The only thing you need to know is that, diver's may do it deeper, but only sailors get blown offshore!
Spend your money on the OOW.
