Just completed open water dive course with Will and can't recommend it enough. We were both nervous to start with and one of us scared of fish!!! Will's patience, humour and calming influence got us through and even diving with 5 bull sharks!!! Amazing experience with an excellent instructor. Will hopefully return next year to do the advanced course!! Thanks Kate and Liz!!

I took my Open Water and Advanced Open Water with Will from Ocean Sound. I feel really lucky to have learned from such a great guy, who has the patience of an angel. Above water and especially under water Will is calm and nothing can throw him off his balance. This rubs of on his students and you get the greatest dives. After the course, my dive buddy said "I learned from the best" and that is exactly how I felt. Thank you for all the great dives, especially with the bull sharks at Sail Rock and the magical night dive at the wreck.

I did my Open Water and Advanced Open Water course will Will North as my instructor. One word, 'excellent'. First off Will is a nice guy. Plus he listens, you can really see that his school teacher experience pays off. Next, you can see that he enjoys his job and love of the ocean. He transmits this to his students. Thanks Will for giving me the 'diving bug'.

Cheers. marc

We have just spent a number of weeks in Thailand and are very keen beachgoers and watersport enthusiasts. Husband (63) and self (58) had done a few fun dives and thought we would like to get our open water certificate. We are both reasonably fit but were naturally tentative, undertaking such a course at our ages.
Will North encouraged us, even though we were not entirely convinced that this course was suitable for us. Careful guidance allowed us to gain confidence and competency in all components of the course, yet we always felt assured that the highest standards of instruction and safety were never compromised.
My theory was that 'only fish should breathe underwater' and without encouragement I would have quit in the first session.
The efforts and patience of Will are to be commended, showing that he can take on students who require a little additional encouragement. This is truly promoting this sport for EVERYONE, not just the young.
