For those of us who have been diving for awhile, I can honestly say that Scuba Diving is ***CHEAPER*** than 23 years ago. I initially got certified 23 Years ago when minimum wage was around $2.35 and hour. I recall spending approximately $325 on my mask, fins, and snorkel. A good basic set up runs that today.
Re the cost of boats, if you take the cost that it takes for the Catalina Express to Catalina, then the taxi to get to Casino Point, and the cost of food; divers can apply that extra money and take a dive boat that includes food, air, great dive spots, AND the convience!
I have never personally been to 'Reefseekers' due to living in Orange County, however, ever since I got recertified for diving in 2002, I book 99% of my trips through your store. The service that you and your staff (store employees, instructors, and DM's) are TOPS!!!
Your prices are very fair. I would say more than fair for the quality of service that you provide!
Looking forward to the 2004 Calendar!!! When might it be posted???
