My son and I recently received our certification and we are confident that Scuba Dennis (goes by Michael) taught us thoroughly and we are prepared for our diving adventures. This was not a formal process (so if you like rigid formality this will make you crazy) but we did get through the process. He always returned my emails and calls.... More

Dennis is a great instructor. He is passionate about scuba diving and seems to really enjoy sharing that passion with others. He was safety conscious and took the time to ensure we had mastered our skills before moving on. He keeps things light and tries to keep things fun while working with you on things that you may be struggling... More

I signed up to take an Open Water Diver course with Dennis (March 2014). It took nearly two months for him to confirm dates for the course. Four other students I had contact with during the course had experienced similar issues. The second day of diving (05/18/14) he was over an hour late and scheduled students who were at different...

I have taken a dive refresher course with Dennis yesterday. Being a certified diver since 1981, however not diving for a number of years, I felt that I needed a "refresher course" prior to actually diving on my own. Dennis demonstrated knowledge and professionalism during the class yesterday. He was very patient and understanding with my being nervous and uncomfortable... More

Great instructor and always nice. May run late a few time but is willing to take the time to teach you and help. Worked around your schedule and knows the importance of not having too big a class.

I am happy for those who had a good experience, unfortunately my son and I have not. I will explain, I am writing to you about our Scuba courses and I wish to ask for a partial refund of such classes. It has become a pattern that I have to call you after 30 minutes that I am there. This... More

I was under a tight schedule to get certified and Dennis worked within my schedule and location to make it happen. He is an excellent instructor and I recommend him for anyone looking to get PADI certified!

My boyfriend and I had never tried scuba diving before and Dennis did a great job of explaining it to us and helping us feel comfortable in the water. We learned at Blue Spring State Park, which was a good place to learn. We had fun and were able to do two dives that day. It is definitely something we... More

Dennis really took his time to explain in detail scuba instruction to my son. I would highly recommend Dennis to anyone wanting to become certified. It's rare to find someone in this sport so passionate, yet accommodating. Great experience overall.

We needed a scuba reorientaion class quickly in preparation for our trip. Dennis was the only dive instructor who quicly returned our call and was able to schedule an class at our home for a few days later. He showed up on time with all the equipment and provided us with a good, comprehensive class over the next 4 hours.... More
