    It looks like Mark Messersmith is teaching courses for you all. Mark has taught Fundamentals classes for us here in Atlanta, and is an excellent instructor. I hope that relationship works out pretty well for you guys.

    Yes thats right, Mark for Fundies & Triox. He has taught the last 2 classes here, which went really well.

    Thanks for your support.

    Silent World and Mark Messersmith are a great combination. I took DIR-F and TriOx with MM at Silent World and HIGHLY recommend both. Chris and Alison run a great GUE/DIR friendly shop and Mark is one of the most professional and thorough instructors I have come across.

    If you are looking for GUE classes or just a great dive operator, try Silent World. They run a great operation.

    Besides a rent-a-car, what's another way of getting down there after flying into Miami International? Where's the Greyhound Bus Terminal and how close is it to the Silent World Dive Shop & Hotels in Key Largo?

    A popular operator is the Keys Shuttle service. http://www.floridakeysshuttle.com/ . They run from Miami International and Ft Lauderdale

    The Greyhound is about $18 and they have stops along the Highway:

    MIAMI ARPT, FL 12:45pm GLI 3711

    MIAMI CUTLER RIDGE, FL 01:20pm GLI 3711

    KEY LARGO, FL 02:05pm

    Our shop is on the Highway as are most of the Hotels, so it shouldnt be a problem getting here from the airport. Give me a call or mail me if I can be of any help with looking into travel arrangements.

    Best regards

    Chris
