Details (please explain why): I looked into a lot of different options when I finally decided I wanted to attempt to learn how to scuba dive ... looked into a lot of pricing and date availability. I called and visited dive shops in the Lower Mainland along with quite the extensive online research ...
During my Google-craze I found out that some of the best diving in the world is on the Sunshine Coast so I expanded my search parameters to look for diving instructors there.
Because of my work schedule, I ended up needing to look at semi-private or private courses.
The Scuba Shack offered private courses and worked around my availability entirely. We did the theory and pool sessions locally then the ocean dives up in Tuwanek.
Everything was provided - everything - all we ever had to do was just show up with our homework completed. Some of the other shops required to have your own "personal gear" or rentals were available.
Dive Shops offered me the ability to rent a dry suit or use the wet suit included in the cost - TheScubaShack uses dry suits.
In the end it actually worked out to be about the same cost getting private lessons as it would have cost in a group environment having the pay for the rentals.
High end computers, BCDs, and regulators (mainly Mares) were especially appreciated. I later used a rented regulator once from a dive shop - never again. I found it such a struggle to breath that I had to end the dive in less than 10 minutes.
I have since gone diving in Whytecliffe ... with all the current, numerous steep stairs and poor visibility, I realize I never would have gone past my Open Water had that been my first diving experience.
Instead I was completely surrounded by dozens of different fish and saw giant Lingcod, an Octopus, and a curious seal.
I now have added Dry Suit, Advanced, Enriched Air (all through Jon) - and am considering working towards becoming an instructor myself!
For me, using Jon for my Sechelt dive lessons was the best decision I ever could have made.
