I took an advanced open water certification course with Freddy in December 2011 and never got around to writing a review. I recently returned to Cozumel to dive but Freddy was already booked and thus I was unable to dive with him. I wanted to dive with him again to show him how much he had helped my wife and I grow as divers. Freddy is serious about the sport and at middle-age and with friends with scuba related injuries, I have come to appreciate his approach more and more.
Freddy is plain-spoken and straight-forward, with an eye for helping divers discover the changes that can advance their skills the most. The advice that he gave me has made me a safer and more relaxed diver.
Many of the dive operators that I have used over the years hire young people who are enthusiastic but feel invulnerable. I can no longer relate to that. Too often, there is minimal dive prep and safety rules are short-changed. It takes someone with a long career of safe diving to teach the skills that can allow a lifetime of diving. That is what Freddy teaches.
I was sorry that I could not dive with Mestizo this trip, we had some great dives but it would have been even better with Freddy.
