Anyone looking at 'Puffin Dive Centre' on tripadvisor can't fail to see their critics bashing the organisation and the staff, all i can say is that i have never had a negative experience (since my first visit in 2006) and can only say that this is the centre on which all others should be based.
They boast a couple of huge and very fast RIBs that can be hired out for the day as well as a Hard Boat called "The Urchin" which is a Gin Palace compared to most day charters i have been on.
I am a great fan of their shop which, as well as being well stocked, can also customise most anything you buy, from 'Slap-Straps' to Dry Suits.
Their trips are well organised and, in my experience set the bar regarding safety. The briefings are meticulous and include maps, anecdotes and short history lessons regarding the site. The Max. Depth/Bottom Times are generous and most importantly are enforced (this seems to baffle some people).
Their vending machine style compressor system is frankly awesome, just wheel in your gear, attach the whip, pop in the money and away you go... nothing else needs to be said).
(The instructions on the front of the console make it clear that Manifolded twins are not to be filled from the system, which seems fair as you would then be getting a Two-For-One on air fills)
