I did an intro dive here at Scuba For Change. My friend (who is already certified) convinced me to try it and let me know how Scuba For Change really gives back to the local community.

I had a hard time overcoming some fears in the beginning but the lovely people at Scuba For Change never rushed me and always took care of my needs. Could not have asked for a better or safer learning experience.

Just finished my OW and AOW with Scuba for Change. Julienne is such an awesome instructor! She's extremely cheerful and patient, and very importantly, she always makes me feel safe! Actually, I was only marginally able to swim and generally afraid of water in the beginning, but I felt quite at ease underwater during the course with Julienne's constant encouragement.... More

Julienne and Gracian are the simply the best. The most patient and down to earth people when teaching (especially us, a bunch of city noobs) for our DSD. Had a wonderful and excellent experience from the instruction, pool training, to the open water diving. Just awesome. These are your guys...Book now, period.
