I have been diving for a long time and have visited many places around the world.How many of you EF members are certified scuba divers?
On the same line, just a little more info...My advice would be to speak to other people who have trained at the differing places, get feedback from them. There are also independant instructors that can teach you, usually for less money as the dive centres. Again though, word of mouth is a great way to find these (or forums :eyebrows
As said, I have been diving a long time so have heard many, many more...Another acronym for you CCR - Pay Another Dive Instructor!
Much better and easier option, dive a rebreather and there is no noise to worry about. So you can just talk normally...if you want to speak to your buddy underwater, rest your reg on their forehead and talk through it. Still comes out a bit jumbled but the sound conducts through your skull/bones in your inner ear and you can pretty much hear what they're saying.
Can't take the credit, was originated from a PADI instructor...(BTW, "awful", not "aweful". Bit hard to call a diver dumb and incompetent when the same spelling mistake was made. Twice. )
I know. Over the years, I have owned more than 10 different RBs, and still have 4 now eventhough too lazy to go diving lately.A rebreather is a serious investment - I don't even have my own reg yet! I'll be sticking to hand signals, a slate or the forehead method for now

You and Pammy should be recognized as the anal-retentive-spelling-police couple...
