This is by far the best week of my 10 year-old's life (exclaimed by him!) - My son was just certified by Gaspar's Spirro. What an amazing memory and he had such a great time!! They were able to get my son all fitted up beforehand with the gear needed and they did 4 dives which consisted of Grouper and Barracudas, which thrilled him! He can't stop talking about how fun it was - they were just great with him and I appreciate that so much. We will be back next trip for the shark's teeth!!

My 16 year old son wanted to learn to SCUBA dive so we called Gaspar’s to see what could be arranged during a visit to Florida. They were great from the first contact through his Open Water certification. The whole experience was both very professional and fun. While we were there, they also catered to professional dive that do hill cleaning and inspections. So they have expertise for divers of all levels from noob to pro. We’ll be visiting them again next year.

I have been looking to get Scuba Certified since me and my family first moved into the area back in 2016. Finally reaching the point that I felt I could afford to give it a shot, I saught Gaspar after some searching and was not disappointed! The price was more reasonable than I had previously expected. Everyone was very knowledgeable and kept a fun educational environment even through so many struggles due to faults not of their own (bad weather, rough seas, etc.) To be brief, I had a great time, learned a lot, started off struggling with my breathing patterns, and was nervous over certain skills when initially introduced to them. But thanks to instructors like Joe and Spero, my last dives at Lake Denton to completion were fun and had me feeling like I want to keep diving and learning for the rest of my life!

I signed up to complete my Open Water Diving Certification with Gaspars along with my brother. From the beginning, it was evident that Joe and Steph, the owners, were customer focused. I was traveling to Florida for vacation, and Steph worked with me prior to my arrival to ensure I understood the schedule, training requirements, and what gear to bring with me. She made everything easy, which allowed me to focus on what I wanted, to learn to dive! When I arrived at the shop before the course started, I met Steph in person and worked with a third member of the team, Spirro, who was obviously, and excessively, knowledgeable about diving, gear fitting, and preferences, ie why I would want fin a over fin b. He made the gear selection about my preferences, showing me each selection, having me try them on, all without pressure to buy one product over another. Once class started, lead by Joe, assisted by Spirro, and supported by Steph, I knew I had made the right decision for my training. Joe knew the ins and outs of every question, but beyond expert knowledge, Joe had a depth of experience which was indispensable. He made classroom learning enjoyable, both because he taught us the technical way and the actual way, while incorporating a great classroom environment. Humor was a wonderful theme that pervaded the class, but it never undercut Joe’s dedication to safety in Diving. The real expertise of the Gaspars team truly shined once we got in the water. Joe and Spirro worked with each person on their individual needs in order to create great divers. For me, this was wonderful. I am a Disabled Veteran, whose injuries resulted in a loss of feeling in my legs. This made figuring out the proper dive position more difficult, but Joe and Spirro gave me individual time and found a solution so I could enjoy diving with my peers. Their dedication to teaching us proper, safe diving was consistent throughout the process and gave us a great foundation in diving. The Gaspar’s Dive team was top notch, and I would recommend them to anyone interested in learning to dive, and to anyone who is already certified and looking for a group capable of taking their knowledge and experience to the next level! I cannot wait to explore the underwater world, and take my next class with this amazing group!
