Amazing scuba diving experience

I was with a group of 3 friends going for our scuba diving open water certificates. Stephane, the instructor, was cheerful, reassuring, and one of the most patient people I’ve ever met. He put a high emphasis on safety and repeating drills with us until we each felt comfortable. He went above and beyond to make us get over our fears and doubts. His crew was absolutely amazing as well, always in a good mood and encouraging us with our first dives.

Easy and Fun

Stephane and Roberta are a great team and we had no problems learning to scuba dive. We saw amazing eels and got to do a bunch of practice. Stephane addressed the youngest person in our group primarily and made sure safety and education, as well as fun, were had the whole time.

Fantastic introduction to scuba diving

Our scuba instructor Jamie taught us the basics of scuba diving in a pool scenario first and out in the ocean the following day. She was informative, considerate and fun to learn from, and answered all of our questions and concerns in a professional, knowledgeable fashion while also making it fun. It was an amazing experience I will not soon forget. The staff catered to our every need and concern.
