A possible negative for some would be the lack of nitrox. Given the depth
of some of the wrecks combined with repetitive diving, we had to be extra
careful a few times to stay within no-decompression limits. It's a
conscious decision that the dive shop made, and frankly, all the other
pluses make this one potential inconvenience for nitrox-certified divers
I should mention that some photographers might want to know their dive boat
does not have special camera facilities. My rig (Nikon D80 with 2 strobes)
'lived' beneath the boat captain's feet. However, the entire team knows how
to handle and protect photo gear, so I quickly felt comfortable with the
whole setup.

We dove for 10 days (13 dives) with Dive Grenada starting Feb 10th, 2012.
We're experienced (350 dives) warm and cold water divers  and are both
also underwater photographers with all the additional concerns that
entails. More details to follow, but the take-home message for those with
short attention spans is that this is an excellent dive shop and we had a
five star experience.

The owners, Phil and Helen, were easy to communicate with from the first
email. The divemasters (Gary, Cojack, Pete and Phil) all were able to
quickly assess our skill level and made sure that every dive was
constructed to allow us all the time we needed to move slowly with our
cameras (and I think they were impressed with just how slow that was!).
Phil made sure the team communicated about all the important little
details. The whole team was genuine, warm and always very helpful  just an
impressive, enjoyable group to dive with.  As an interesting aside,
there was an advanced open water class doing their checkout dives that week
and I noticed my husband sometimes eaves-dropping on Phil's dive briefings.
My husband said he was really impressed by all the extra gems of wisdom
that were sprinkled into those dive briefings. We hope those kids
appreciated what a good and detail-oriented instructor Phil is! We learned
a few things for free - you're never too old to learn.

Take home message: Excellent dive shop, excellent service, and great diving
(reef conditions, fish life, general diversity very good)
