Finally , but MOST IMPORTANTLY is knowing how to pick the Roatan Dive Shop that has the highest safety standards! Listed are the essential questions you need to ask to maintain the minimal safety standards.
Do you carry oxygen on the boat? Don't just take their word for it, you should see it with your own two eyes.
Do you carry a VHF radio - and no a cell phone is NOT nearly as good?
Does the boat remain at the dive site after dropping off divers?
Do you have the boat manned by a captain at ALL times (DMS or instructors can't do both jobs at the same time!)
Do you have your air analyzed (The analysis certificate should be dated within the last three months)?
Are your tanks all in hydro?
How long has my instructor been an instructor?
How long has the Dive master/Instructor been on the island (local knowledge makes all the difference to your dive experience)?
Between the air and the water a steel wave quivers.
What people call the surface is also a ceiling.
A looking glass above, watered silk below.
Nothing is torn on the way through.
Only a few bubbles mark the diver's channel and behind him the frontier soon closes.
But once the threshold is crossed you can turn back slowly and look up:
that dazzling screen is the border between two worlds, as clear to the one as to the other.
Behind the looking glass the sky is made of water.
