    I really like Michael Bolt and have been out with him a couple of times. He is Danish and married a local girl. He only runs a dive shop because he loves to dive. He hasn't made any money doing it which is probably why he opened up the bar next door to his shop. His shop is in a convenient location and it is a short walk to the beach with your gear. The problem with DiveMike is that his boat is in really rough shape (unless it has been recently replaced and I don't think it has).
    This is not meant to 'bash' DiveMike but just an honest opinion. Some people might be disappointed if they weren't forewarned. There are a lot of boats being used by the smaller Ops that are just as rough. The bigger operations tend to have better boats but DiveMike offstes that with prices that tend to be lower.
    There are many shops to choose from and maybe DiveMike will be the right fit for you.
