I went through video lectures, textbooks, homework, quiz and exams as well as pool and ocean dive trainings. As you can see from these facts, the course was well organized and gave... More

We really enjoyed our first dives. After the pool phase they took us on a couple of great trips for our first dives. We felt safe and we had lots of fun. Thanks Lennard, Saleem and all others. The restaurant serves great cappucino and pizza. So from the early morning till the late afternoon you're a happy diver. Even the... More

Before and after the dives they couldn't do enough to help everyone with their kit. They gave everyone an excellent briefing ahead of the dive nd laid... More
