    by , December 18th, 2012 at 01:18 PM (DivemasterDennis-)
    If you are a dive instructor, or spend much time here on scuba board, you know that there is an ongoing, and probably a never ending conversation about just what constitutes proper training for a new scuba diver, and also for more advanced levels of certification. We all know that training comes from a variety of sources: books, class room instruction, on line instruction, informal reading, and of course, diving itself.

    During my 16 years as a dive instructor and owner/manager of a number of dive operations in the Caribbean and Middle East, I have come to realise that over 80% of the dive travel market is poorly neglected. Nearly all travel agents catering to the SCUBA market only cater to the avid diver who wants a dive only vacation package.
