Reviews of the PADI scuba diver course
Did a PADI Scuba Dive course and the service was excellent, the instructors were great. I would highly recommend it.
What a truly awesome experience! Exceeded all my expectations. I have just completed my Scuba Diver PADI course with instructor Ariel. He had the patience that gave me confidence to succeed in all tasks however long they took. From my online e-learning package to my course instruction everything was organised to perfection. I can not praise the staff enough. Brilliant experience, highly recommended, 5 stars.
