In Sydney, we are lucky to have many very good Scuba Diving Operators.These operators run quality training courses which are fun and safe, producing lots of good, safe divers. We genuinely believe we are the best but there are a number of other excellent operators.
But with any bunch however, there are some better than others and some that unfortunately do not adhere to strict standards of business and codes of conduct.
Some backyard dive operators are offering Coupon Deals under a range of business names and constantly changing the coupon dealer (Groupon, spreets, scoopon, LivingSocial, Deal of the Day….) Some of these less experienced operators do not have staff, equipment and expertise to safely and efficiently run the course?
Watch Out For the Fly By Night Operators
If you have any friends thinking about a Cheap Coupon deal then ask them to research the dive centers and ask the following questions:
How long have the operator been in business?
Have you changed your business name?
What other business names have you operated under?
Why did they change their name?
Are the a 5 star PADI Dive Center?
What ratios of instructor to student do they use?
Do they have the staff and equipment on hand to safely and efficiently run my course?
What corners have they cut to reduce the price?
