Ocean Hunters is a Doral Based diver center that has been offering "Padi Certifications". I found them through a groupon offer and decided to take my Dive Course level training with them.
I should have known from the start that there was something shady as Abdiel Falcon was almost impossible to schedule with. He also knew nothing about dive charts and references his iPhone when asked a question about charts.
After a good friend lost his card he contacted PADI directly since Abdiel wasn't responding to our emails and found out from the LEGAL team within PADI that Ocean Hunters was infact not certified to give PADI certifications.
Below is a link directly from PADI stating the fact:
End result is he provides an unsafe diving experience and my Advice to you is spend the money with a Dive shop that has a track record. Abdiel has done a lot to cover his tracks including getting negative reviews removed off sites like YELP. Hopefully trip advisor isn't a legitimate site that is concerned with the end consumer.
