The wife and I went on an introductory dive on the Great Barrier Reef during our recent honeymoon, which ranked as the best non-sex thing we did on that trip (at least for me - hers was bottle feeding a lame merino lamb in New Zealand).
Anyway, having had a taste of scuba diving, I would love to learn how to do it properly (i.e. get certified), and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for schools/ programs in the Chicago area. I’d prefer in the city or in a proximate suburb (e.g. Evanston, Oak Park) rather than one in a further suburb (e.g. Naperville). Also, are there any programs/ instructors to avoid?
Thanks in advance!
