“Bad Instructor Experience”
Review of B&B Scuba

B&B Scuba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2007

I think his name was Stephan, but the instructor we had said he had been a lawyer and now was a dive instructor. He explained little to nothing, got annoyed easily, and seemed a bit dangerous. At one point, he sent us down and when I looked up, I was on the bottom of the Molikini Crater alone. I was down there for about 5-10 min, which was a little freaky since it was only my second time and my buddy, my wife was still on the surface. I found out later she didn't have enough weight in her belt, so she wasn't sinking. The instructed told her to get past the fear and was shoving her head underwater. It totally freaked her out. Our last dive, he took us into a sunken ship, which although was cool, kind of freaked us out since we weren't certified for something like that, and we didn't trust him. I would not suggest using this company if you're going to get certified. Even the guides for the other groups and boat driver were unpleasant. It was not a good experience at all.

Have been diving with this company for five years, they taught and certified both my daughters and have been top notch for my son and myself, nobody more qualified on the island. We get over 30 dives (each) a summer and love the cookies. Thx B&B Vancouver BC Canada

I just got back from diving with B&B in Maui. My trip was from Dec. 2 - 11, 2006 and me and a buddy of mine had an awesome time. I dove 2 days with them and my friend snorkeled one day and did 2 intro dives with B&B. I have been diving for over 12 years and have logged many dives with several dive boats/companies and B&B is by far the best dive group I've ever been with.

Unlike some dive groups that take you to a dive spot and drop you off and when your done diving you hope you can find the boat, B&B are really concerned about each divers' safety and make sure that you have a great time! I especially enjoyed diving with several divemasters who show you around and keep a lookout for unusual creatures.

Then there were the snacks. Oh my! After the first dive they offered us the best pineapple I've ever eaten and Blessie's Unbelievable Chocolate Chip cookies. They also made sandwiches for us that were really good. They had a large assortment of can drinks, coffee, and cold water.

In all diving with B&B was like going diving with a group of your best friends - unforgetable. They are all very friendly, Captain Bill was very helpful, and diving with Leo and Stan was awesome. Brad and Blesi are very nice too!!

Can't wait to dive with them again!

We cancelled a dive trip within 24 hrs. and were still charged for the trip. We were never told that there was a cancellation policy. Attempts to have this billing dispute resolved have been unsuccessful. Owner is non-responsive. Beware.
