Important Notes:
To prevent spam-bots from putting the email addresses above onto spam lists, we've replaced

Each instructor, or the shops they work at, sets their own fee for the training provided. Those fees vary widely and if you are sensitive to cost, you'll be glad you checked with several of the above instructors. Some instructors conduct their classes from the beach near the Tankers' Reef site, others run their classes as boat dives.

This list is current as of September 21, 2021. The list has grown during the year and we expect more instructors to get certified and be listed here in the future.
