Wonderful time and great with beginners!

We went as a family and boy, was it worth it. The reef isn't anything spectacular, but our guide WAS! I would definitely go back on our next trip!

I would HIGHLY recommend Gold Coast to any one, and already have to several of my friends. I was on the same dive trip with the lady who wrote the previous review, and I have no idea what she is talking about. Brad is an incredible instructor and took time with every one of us. When that woman was having... More

Don’t even consider getting your OW certification with Gold Coast Scuba / Brad unless you are already a pro! Corners are cut and company’s barbecue is more important for Brad, the trainer than meeting the basic PADI course requirements of five confined (he offered two) and four open water (he offered three) training dives. Brad seems totally burned out from... More

Mike was a great guide for our snorkeling trip! I would definitely recommend the wet suit if you are not a strong swimmer.

We were pleasantly surprised at how great the snorkeling was here just a short walk from the shop. We didn't initially want to wear the wet suits we are glad we took the recrimination of our dive master to do so. It seemed to take a long time to get all our group and equipment rounded up, but it was... More
