Each year, we travel to new places to scuba dive. Over the years we have experienced dive shops that catered to their customers and dive shops whose attitudes were shop- worn. Here's what we liked about West Side Scuba Center: everything. They are well organized. They have a positive, can do approach. They care!! Because they care, the dives are safer and more fun. They stand apart from other shops because they treat each diver with consideration, support divers of all levels, and are truly focused on safety first. I observed staff several times providing individual instruction to newer divers. They provide continuos, positive instruction. One last item: Peter Grannum, the owner, is forthright, honest and is a character in his own right.
