Horizon Divers is a fantastic operation.  I found them by chance via the
internet.  They have Scuba Diving's "#1 rating" on their home
page so I thought they were worth a try.  I was just learning--did my
checkout OW dives followed by four more days of diving.  
The crew was very helpful during my entire stay.  They changed my gear
about half of the time, which was fine with me...I didn't expect it anyway.
 Instructors were very thorough and patient.  They taught me a lot in
between dives about gear, travel, etc.  As a beginner, I got continued
"instruction" from the crew throughout the week.  Continuous
helpful hints and they let me try multiple pieces of their equipment (even
one of their instructor's Scubapro reg).  Boat is big and never felt
cramped for space.  Adequate rinse basins, anti-fog, head, refreshments,
etc.  They had everything from experienced divers with NITROX to children. 
The crew accomodated them all with ease.
All dives were shallow (25-35 feet) except for the last day.  Went to
Spiegel Grove last day with a divemaster guide.  He did a great job of
making sure I was comfortable with the dive plan and had no concerns before
going deep (100 feet).  Great time!
I will definitely be back with Horizon.  The only thing I'll do different
is NOT stay at the Ramada next door.  They set it up for me and it was
cheap but very run-down and dirty.  I won't stay there again.
