Well what can I say .... professional, fun, great value and great people. I was lucky enough to dive with both Maurice and Bob. I completed a PADI open water course with a few friends over 2/3 days.

After completing the basic skills, we were lucky to dive at a few fantastic locations. Including, shipwrecks, great looking fish and corals and even TURTLES 🐢.

Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to start or even progress with diving course. I will be planning to get back out there after COVID to get diving again. 10/10

It was an amazing experience into the breathtaking underwater life.
Dancing with fishes and turtles & playing with colourful corals.

Diving equipment was first class and the theory was explained splendid.

Thank you Floris for holding my hand and you did blow my mind!

Our favorite part of the practice dive was swimming past the ship wreck. As father and daughter it was an amazing experience for both of us. The short explanation of the concept of diving was excellent and for both our first time diving it was even better than we expected! I would highly recommend it.

Jan Thiel was a great choice for us! Jill picked us up from the cruise terminal and drove us to the Dive Shop. She was very kind and informative, telling us about the island. We had a great private lesson and would definitely use Jan Thiel diving again.

Did my first ever scuba diving experience last week with Bob and it was such an incredible experience that I had to go and do it a 2nd time a few days later! He goes through everything to make sure that your diving experience is as amazing and enjoyable as possible, I felt totally safe and comfortable for both my dives and will certainly go back again!

Bob was the perfect instructor for my first time diving. I was a little nervous, but he's just so relaxed and funny. We had a great dive at a beautiful reef. Will definitely come back.

LOVED IT! My instructor, Maurice, was so patient, funny, and overall just a positive vibe. (Much needed for something so nerve-racking lol) We went over all the basics, practiced, and went diving at a beautiful location. Wouldn’t change a thing! Highly recommend!
