I took the PADI open water course with a Private instructor (Noellie). She was awesome! She was a very good teacher. It felt like a real learning experience instead of simply a few guided dives. Highly recommend her!

Myself and my 10 year old son did the live aboard option to get our PADI certification. Our instructor was Theo, he was knowledgeable and very patient. He made the course informative and fun. Would highly recommend this option with this dive outfit.
