My son, nephew, and myself went through Blue Wilderness's PADI Open Diver certification course and were very happy with the quality of the training and instruction. Our primary instructor, Michal, was outstanding. He took our training and safety very seriously, carefully explaining the tasks we needed to perform beforehand and then clearly and attentively coaching us while in the water.
Our ocean dives combined structured training with a bit of underwater sightseeing, where the instructors pointed out interesting sea life and modeled good diving habits. It was a nicely balanced mix.
I'd have no hesitation recommending Blue Wilderness to anyone seeing SCUBA certification.
