I had my Discover Scuba Diving experience with Universal Diver in March 2015. I decided to come back for my PADI Scuba Diver course with Universal Diver. Many thanks to my instructor, Gemma Spence, for your patience and encouragement and for showing me the beautiful underwater realm. I will continue to dive and enjoy exploring the underwater world..
