    Me, myself and maybe Rhoody....:p

    there are many good instructors in Dumaguete and the surrounding area, Everybody has to follow the same outlines anyway. If you are comfortable in the water you will not have any problems with anyone.
    Some are not really patient as they loose money if spending too much time with one student to make him overcome a problem. You will still get certified, even with problems in some skills...:(

    It also comes down if you need the comfort of a resort with changing room shower available, or you can go from Dumaguete to the trainings-sites and back...

    just some points to consider

    cheers

    Sure, could you send me a price list? And does it include all the fees, rental equipment, book, certificate, etc? What certification do you have, PADI or otherwise? Thanks

    I highly recommend you contact Rhoody and spend some time with him. Please take him out and have a few beers and get to know him; watch out though because he's German and knows his way around a bar. What you will find is that not only have you found a dive instructor but you will have made a friend. Every peso i spent at Mikes Dive Shop and with Rhoody for my dive lessons (and bar hops) was absolutely worth it. Read my comments in the thread posted about Mike and Rhoody.

    Good luck and enjoy Dumaguete!

    I have been on quite a few dives with Rhoody now and I feel very comfortable diving with him (Unless I am hung over and feed the fish - but that is not really Rhoodys fault) :smile:

    Hello all,

    Any off the dive shops in Dumaguete or Tagbilaran City Bohol take on part time or as needed Dive Masters or Instructors? Nothing full time just ob call if needed.

    The wife and I are moving to the Dumaguete area this fall.
