    Looking for someone to do a Discover Scuba Dive with

    I started trying to sift through the threads, looking for something that would fit our needs...and well, it's a little hard because we probably have somewhat of a unique situation. So, I'm starting my own thread in hopes that someone can point me in a good direction with a company that will fit our needs.

    The hubby and I have done 2 Discover Scuba dives (in St Thomas and also Curacao). So we are looking for someone to do a Discover Scuba with us in Aruba. We have a 9 year old daughter, who is a PADI Seal certified diver already, with also 2 shore dives from the ocean (including our last dive down to about 30'...yes I know, she is not really allowed to do that, but that's what they allowed her to do and she did wonderful). She dives at our local dive shop every month and does various different courses (Aquamission Specialty Classes) to continue with her training.

    So, we are looking for a company that we can all dive with. When we were in St Thomas, our party (we had my adult children with us that time around, so we had a party of 5 adults) did the DSD and our 2 little ones (my then 8 year old daughter and 8 year old grandson) did a Bubblemakers class while we dove. In Curacao, this past April, we were able to dive, just the 3 of us, all together. Originally we were supposed to start out together and then someone stay back closer to the surface of the water with our daughter, but there was only 1 instructor and just our family that day that we all went down together.

    Which company do you all recommend that would be good for our family to dive with? We have to have someone that can accommodate all 3 of us at the same time (meaning DSD for adults and bubblemaker IN THE OCEAN for the youngin). We will not do a Bubblemaker in a pool or anything. She gets enough of that at home so not paying $$ for her to do the same thing in another pool and it must be the ocean.


    Thanks in advance.

    i can recommend a few: (disclosure ..i do not know if they can accomodate all 3 at the same time...you will need to contact them)

    AquaWindies
    Unique Watersports
    JADS

    these are all PADI
    and they are all good.
    it's not that the others are bad...these are the only ones that we have used.
    you will need to contact them with your criteria.

    Thanks Andrea.

    I contacted AquaWindies and JADS with what we were looking for and what we have done in the past.

    Unique Watersports...well, for the life of me I can't find any way to contact them. Maybe I'm missing it but there doesn't seem to be any information online to contact them. Even if you hit the "reservations" button...still no way to reserve or contact. Any thoughts?

    Aqua Windies replied and I'm very interested. I'm just waiting to get an answer as to where we would be diving at.


    JADS replied also. I gave them a detailed description of our history, who's going, date and so on. I wasn't as impressed with their reply because they asked some of the same questions that I have already answered...which I thought was weird, but they did address other questions that I inquired about.

    I'll try to check with Unique still.
