Helpful crew and staff, great location (especially if you stay near alona beach). Our guide Rigie the jack fish whisperer brought the jack fish storm to us..not just one day but three days in a row. Make sure you ask for him when you dive there, he is especially good at spotting all the macro stuff. Thank you Rigie and all the crew, we had a great time and hope to come back and dive with you guys soon!!

Did five days of diving with Sierra Madre. Before my first dives, Paul helped me set up my new wing. He taught me how to adjust the wing, gave me good guidance on using it and tips for maintenance. I did my dives with Rigie, who's a great Dive Master. Some of my dives were in a group, some with just Rigie. I highly recommend Sierra Madre Divers.

I've just completed my AOW course with an instructor, Anton who literally knows what he is doing. Since he went through every details and cases might happen in advance, I didn't even have almost any questions left after that. I also felt safe in the water as my instructor always kept his eye on me. I mean, All The Time! I wasn't just left in the water but was constantly being taught with any possible things I needed. I had had little bit of fear getting into the water even though I was already holding my OW certificate. But the second day of my AOW course, I could feel much much better. There was no fearful moment anymore. Thank you for all your hard work, Anton! and also Dee who is becoming a dive master! :D I strongly recommend this shop, especially with Anton, to sombody that considers to do Padi courses! You will not regret it. ;)

My partner and I had the pleasure of completing our OW course at Sierra Madre and we were both extremely pleased with our experience. Booking was swift and easy and we ended up with a stellar teacher Anton, who deserves a medal, I was so nervous about the whole experience but he was so chilled out and reassuring that he put me at ease immediately. His teaching method is exemplary as he would continuously repeat information to you and check your understanding with questions at regular intervals to reinforce it, which made it much easier for us to grasp over the few days. The centre was efficient and we got so much from our experience. 5* to the whole experience! Can’t wait to come back for some fun dives 🙌🏾 Thank you all!

We really can recommend this dive school. We did our AOWD there and we had our own instructor for just the two of us. Anton was our teacher an he is such a nice and helpful person and a perfect dive instructor! 5* Padi school and 5* from us! Will visit again.
