I got my diving certification with Avadon on Dec. 17, 2012. The first 3 dives were at Glovers Reef and the the next 3 at South West Caye. I had a referral from Canada and completed only the open water part with Avadon. Right from the start, Avadon was very professional: Anne Marie answered all the questions I had in regards to the schedule for the day, their fees structure was clear and I never felt pressured. The morning of the dive, the driver was on time to pick me up from the hotel and drive me to Avadon to take the boat to the dive site. The boat was excellent: 2 showers with fresh water available, a well kept washroom, good breakfast, yummy lunch, really appreciated the ginger tea and fresh fruits between dives to take care of the salty water (nice touch Anne Marie!) and most importantly the equipment was always prepared/ checked by their team. The instructor, Arthur, did an amazing job in making me feel comfortable under the water ( it was my first dive in the Ocean) and from someone glued to her instructor like a Nemo fish, he made me feel like the Ocean can become a familiar place. I have seen sharks, eagle rays, turtles, lobsters and the most amazing formation of corals. I loved the wall diving and the sensation of silky sky diving was really cool! The full team worked relentlessly during the trip, and they were all knowledgable, with a real passion for diving: thank you Anne Marie for your good advises and for being so welcoming, thank you Patrick, Sean, Moses and Warren for making everything go so smoothly you make such a strong team! Thank you Arthur for trusting I can be a good diver, sharing your knowledge with me and getting me hooked for life to the diving experience. I will try to go at leat once a year diving. The next diving company will have a hard time to meet Avadon's standards. I think I am spoiled for life now. Big thank you to all! Camelia
