Whether they specialize in recreational, commerical, or other sides of the diving field, dive shops everywhere put safety at the top of the list. Certifications and documentation must be kept up to date. The compressed air utilized for safe equipment (including breathing air) must be checked and verified regularly. These steps are how any diving business succeeds and how their clients remain safe.
Akumal Dive Shop, located along Mexico’s Caribbean shoreline, exemplifies the business side of diving. Akumal is a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) certified site for dive instruction. The shop also offers SDI (Scuba Diving International) and TDI (Technical Diving International) training.
They are concerned deeply with safe diving and safe air.
Recently, Akumal shared on its Facebook page its strong, passing verification for its compressed air.
