    I was just about to ask the same thing.

    I did Belize, Mexico, Grand Cayman, Texas and am looking at doing St. Lucia late this fall. It is one of my favorite things to do in the world.

    Yea Padi’s what I’ve got and seems to be the most common world wide.

    My lady did the online course prior to her open water. She seemed to like it fine, you obviously still do your underwater skills and a couple dives after your elearning.

    Well documented. It's a cold suit dive and sparse life given the temperature (~2F above freezing), but it is spectacular. Nothing like the carribean.

    Even though the dive is not for everyone (freezing, awkwardness of drysuit, super expensive) it's a must do for divers.

    one video, and link to more

    SDI and TDI both solid....I have my advanced through SDI. When it comes time to do your Nitrox I would do it in a class setting.
