Even though Extended Horizons is a very small company, every aspect of the
operation is first class. From my initial contact by phone before the trip,
to making arrangements after arriving on the island, to the diving,
everything was handled professionally and efficiently. Dive reservation

Hi Steve,
I agree...Extended Horizons is a pretty damn good company. I dived with
them two years ago and enjoyed a spectacular night dive right off the Mala
docks. Cathedrals were fun, although I was a bit of a wreck having wiped
out face first on the rough ashphault at the pier at 6:00 in the morning
walking from car to dive boat. Learned the hard way: don't wear flip-flops
and don't dive after a wipe-out...adrenelin/shock does strange things to
your system. No faujlt of Extended Horizons...they were great and would
like to dive with them again. Off to Grand Turks with daughter who's
getting PADI certified there in early April...happy joy joy! Stayed in a
condo at K'anapali too, the Aston Kaanapali Villas. Really nice with
kitchen and great view of ocean.

Hi Sheri - Thanks for the info on the night dive - in my experience, night
dives are either awful or fantastic, no in-between. I'll definitely
schedule a night dive at Mala next time. Hope Grand Turks are wonderful,
nice place to get certified.
