The views of the bay where Kevin leads the tours is breath taking. I was surprised to find that he operated out of his van and there was not a physical building at the location. However, there was plenty of parking nearby and access to public bathroom and shower for rinsing after the dive. Both Kevin, the owner/operator, and Max,... More

Wow! would be enough of a review. After several days of windy weather and high surf that kept us on the shore, we were itching to get into the water. A morning of snuba turned out to be the perfect antidote to too much time on the land. Although we've snorkeled a lot, we've never done snuba before and now... More

None of our family are scuba divers, so trying Snuba seemed a great middle ground. Kevin did a great job with his instructions and making it a fun time for all four of us. Our adult sons took to it immediately and my wife and I got the hang of it after a bit. A great experience.

I've snorkeled and free dived for years and love being under water. But I can only hold my breath for so long. And I've been worried about clearing my ears as I dive down. Snuba solves both of these problems. For me Snuba was natural but for others in our group it was a challenge. Kevin the dive master was... More

We're land locked Canadians, the idea of scuba diving was uncomfortable for us, we have a 12 year old and a 15 year old. Snuba was the perfect compromise and Kevin was friendly, professional, and patient, despite having a lot of difficulty with my mask (I brought my own - mistake - I should have used Kevin's).

Since my wife doesn't scuba dive, I decided to give her a sample of something a little more than snorkeling. We signed up for the snuba experience and met Kevin in front of the beach where we dove. His instruction was quick and easy and he was very patient and helpful. The area we dove at was great for a... More

If you've ever wondered how it would be to go scuba diving this is a great little taste. It allows you the experience of being fully submersed and using the respirator for breathing. Kevin was extremely competent and patient allowing us all to move at our own pace. I would go again :)

We booked this for a 9am SNUBA and my son and I were the only ones on this excursion. We received very good instruction from Kevin and he kept us safe, entertained and having a blast the whole time. I am not a very experienced ocean swimmer and only tried snorkeling once so was a little nervous every about this.... More

For the 9 of us, including a four-year old who doesn't swim and an adult who could barely snorkel, we had a BLAST! The communication prior to the event with Kevin was excellent and assuring. The meeting place was very easy to find and parking was a breeze at our 9:30am SNUBA. Roomy restroom is available for change before and... More

It's incredibly easy to find. I've driven past this section of beach and never thought it had zillions of fish. Kevin is a pro. He was able to manage my fears and allowed me to have an excellent time. He checked on my progress consistently and patiently making adjustments where necessary. It's not terribly expensive when compared with SCUBA. There's... More
