Can anyone give a recomendation for a dive outfit. I will be staying in town at the Suites Bahia. Are there places where you can rent SCUBA gear (BC and Reg)?
There are many dive outfits to choose from and it depends on the style of diving you want to do. Some people prefer the bigger operations with the large boats, others prefer smaller more personalized service. Check out www.travelnotes.cc and take a look at the reviews and see what catches your eye. My personal favorites are Blue Note and Aqautic Sports. I am sure that the Bahia has a reccomended dive operation that they work with. If you are at the Bahia, I think there are a few that will pick up right there outside the hotel at the pier, so that may be a factor in your decision.
Countless number of dive shops to choose from, and you can rent any or all your gear including computers & underwater cameras at most of them. If you are looking for a small group operator I can recommend Pelagic Ventures, who I dove with this winter. If a big operator with easy on & off boats is more suitable then Aqua Safari comes to mind but there are many top notch operators to choose from.
