Comments We went to Blackbird Caye Resort because of the Undercurrent Reviews--and we were not disappointed. We have been on two Aggressor liveaboards and one other (Turneffe Flats) resort. This was the best. Why? The resort is 5 to 10 minutes away from lots of dive sites, with a reef right off the resort. The DMs really k ... Subscribe to get the full story.

Curious has to why you haven't completed AOW and how you were allowed to do dives to 150 ft. I have 1300 dives, and I got my AOW on the next dive trip after OW certification. If you can't go below 60 feet, you are limiting your dive buddy to that level.

My wife and I have been diving for 24 years all over the world. I never have been told that I can't go under 60 feet with Open Water until This Year at two dive resorts, not on the liveaboards. Perhaps PADI is trying to enforce their own silly rule so they can make more money selling AOW. Perhaps Undercurrents can inquire with PADI.

I've been on 17 liveaboard trips in the last 12 years and was always asked for my credentials, especially if I plan to use Nitrox (Enriched Air certification). Dive operators are increasingly concerned about liability. No recreational diver wants to be faced with risking their own life to save a diver who gets into trouble. Making an emergency ascension from 100 feet is a lot harder than from 60 feet.Just saying.
