My open water training was amazing!! Phil was very patient and we had a laugh along the way, I could not recommend Scuba Diving North West more, I cannot wait to complete my advanced open water in the new year!
Phil is an excellent coach and teacher. He took our 10 year old through PADI junior open water and the course was delivered safetly and with humour. Highly recommended.
