I rewarded myself with a Scuba class while on Vaca this past May. It was a great decision. Great Little Shop with real personal attention. Ask for Suni. He took the time and was very Patient.

Went scuba diving with the Italian Chuck Norris aka Davide. He was excellent. Scuba is scary for a first timer but Davide does an amazing job making you feel comfortable.
