I took my open water certification course. It was great! Rommel was very professional and divemaster Pat was awesome! He made sure to check in on me every few seconds during our first dives and I felt very comfortable with him. Would recommend!

Dear TAYLOR, Thank you for the good review. We are again inspired to do well. By the way, the nickname of Divemaster Napoleon is NAP, not Pat. Cheers
