Nicole K wrote a review May 2019
South Lake Tahoe, California46 contributions7 helpful votes
I have struggled with this review. The location for us was ideal. The staff that worked there was very kind, considerate and knowledgeable. We had some problems with our diving gear which they readily fixed. I would recommend planning to pay for the entire experience with cash. We had multiple issues trying to make a payment, since they do not have a credit card machine! Every other place we stayed at or scuba dived with , offered a credit card machine. The owner made me feel really bad and was aggressive on his texts. This became very stressful and took away from our experience. Having said that, I would’ve given the crew of four stars! Jake is wonderful

Dear Nicole, Thank you for taking the time to present your version of events. Please allow me to present the facts - as was heavily discussed with you at the time as you seem to fail to acknowledge the real; situation. It is only fair that people are able to see both sides. It was you who opted to pay by Paypal which we gave you the details for. Your payment failed and as outlined by Paypal was owing to an issue on your own account, not ours (you do remember having to send Paypal your ID verification right?). We then gave you bank details so you could make a transfer but you opted to no do that too. So, in the end we then went to great lengths to run you to the city (using my own car and at our own expense) so you could attend an ATM. I remember also explaining to you that we are awaiting a card reader which should be with us at the end of May. Again, you seem to take a pleasure in pointing out the obvious when you already know it is in progress. To suggest that texts were aggressive is unfair as all i served to do was outline that we had done all we could to assist you, despite several insults aimed at our operation and your continued insistence that the Paypal problem was our side. To have someone clearly make insults and not expect a response is naive in the extreme. Yes, we serve customers and we will continue to do so but respect runs both ways.

Professional, Indefatigable, Conscientious, and Knowledgeable. Three days, seven dives, including Apo Island and the Zamboanguita coast. The staff were incredibly attentive and went out of their way to make our diving and snorkeling unforgettable. I dove while my girlfriend, along with her sister and mother, did snorkeling. Although they don’t swim well, they were guided and attended the whole way, and had a blast! I had the best of diving experiences and will happily visit again! Thanks to Jake, Richard, Maria, and the whole team!

Dear ChinaWalnuts, Our sincere thanks for your glowing feedback of our humble operation. The team are stoked that you had a pleasurable experience including meeting half a dozen Flamboyant Cuttlefish in Zamboanguita. To be able to have your girlfriend and family accompany you is always nice and something we endeavour to do where possible. We truly hope to see you again in the future. Stay safe and may you be blessed with many more great diving experiences. From the whole CDA Team.

They organize a day trip to Apo Island for snorkels and divers and Me and my partner and sister joined and I can say that we all did have an amazing time. Me and my sister did the snorkling since I was pregnant and cant dive and we were able to swim with turtles and enjoy the beautiful island while my partner did 3 dives that he enjoyed aswell. Mark the shop owner was very accommodating along with his wife and crew which were very friendly and made us feel safe in the water. Great team and I would highly recommend this place for diving and snorkeling.
