Because of the increasing number of scuba divers worldwide, satisfaction and safety issues are crucial for success in the tourism industry. This study established characteristics of scuba diving guides to achieve diver safety along with the environmental impact concerns related to this activity. A hybrid MCDM model was used to address dependent relationships among a set of criteria. Preferences of divers towards dive guides can be calculated using ANP and DEMATEL to determine the relative weights of each criterion. The result shows that diving skill is the crucial factor for professional dive guides, including the skill in leading dives and managing problems.
