Great for open water certification. 5 stars for Jess - great sense of humor, knowledge and leadership. Minus 1 star for the captain of the Skyfox (bad and creepy attitude) and the equipment (torn wetsuit, swim certification in a tiny backyard pool) and poor Covid measures. Overall great bang for your buck. Try to schedule with Jess.

Amazing experience! We were a group of 5 getting certified for open water diving and it was a wonderful experience. Nick Cordray was our chill instructor, who had time and energy for every member of the class. He explained and demonstrated everything, had time for all questions, and was extremely safety oriented. After a land session (post e-learning) we had two full days in the water, with four great dives. Could not have asked for a better instructor and staff. Felt safe and well trained every step of the way. Highly recommend!!!

I have been to the shop twice now as a complete newbie with a lot of questions. Both times, Delani has helped. Her service was absolutely exemplary. She went above and beyond with informing and assisting me. 11/10, would recommend.

My boyfriend and I signed up for the Open Water Certification course with 5 other students. Ed was our instructor and he was the best — Super knowledgeable and experienced, plus he was really approachable and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. During the dives, he continually checked in with each of us so I always felt safe. We saw a bunch of turtles on our dives, and the boat staff was friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to dive with Ed and the company again.

I had Ed as my instructor and felt like he was very well versed and knowledgeable in scuba. I learned a lot and cant wait to go again. We saw so many turtles during our last dive. I will definitely be back to scuba soon!
