My husband and I were scuba first-timers, and excited but nervous about trying it out. Everyone on the island recommended SCUBA for being friendly, safe, and educational. They were right- I cannot rave about them enough! We dove with Sim, who was fantastic. He really helped us relax and enjoy the experience. With any other instructor, I probably wouldn't have...

Ashley, We love reading 5 star excellent reviews. We especially love ones when the reviewer tells us that she loved trying out scuba so much that she's going to become a certified diver. With all the classroom work being done online now all we need is two days with you. Shall we get that scheduled soon? More
