As a newbie, i was only doing an intro course. I have done this a couple of times before, most recently an intro course in Byron Bay. However, this experience out trumped them all!
I actually have a slight fear being under the water, i never like to go too deep hence always too scared to get actual license. I've done a number of intro courses before but with Dive & Relax, i felt the most comfortable and they were definitely the most accommodating.
I had two scares in the water, as i had slight issues with water getting into my mask. My first instinct was to bolt to the top but my instructor was just soooo amazing, he reacted straight away, calmed me down and helped me breath normally and fix my problem in the water. The entire time i felt safe and comfortable.
But the most amazing part to this whole experience was them helping me to take photos in the water! I wasn't allowed to take a camera with me because i'm not licensed, so my instructor helped me capture some of the moments. With other places, they will either just turn you down straight away, or charge you through the roof.
I think being a small dive shop, they really cared about giving you the best experience. It was just me and my bf with the instructor, we got his full attention in the water and back on the boat it was a small group of 8 with the other instructors and staff. It really lived up to it's name "dive and relax"!
