First off, Paul and Diane are great and their British humor is icing on the cake! I went to The Dive Academy with friends, twice, in order to get my open water and advanced dive certifications. The instruction was superb. Paul has a presence underwater that conveys his control of the situation which made diving for the first time a really exciting and safe experience. It certainly doesn't hurt that the waters around Las Galeras offering amazing underwater sites and that Paul really knows his way around the area. The downside is that now I'm spoiled and diving in other places often times doesn't compare with the great experiences I had in Las Galeras. Thanks Paul and Diane!
