Great

Alex and Viki were great instructors and the group itself was great too. I feel confident to persue my scuba diving and had 4 enjoyable, instructive and fun packed days! Great value for money and definitely recommend.

Top!

I can really recommend this open water dive course. My instructor Rob was just awesome. He is patient, kind, funny and considerate. He really wants that you feel comfortable and safe. I really enjoyed those 4 days. Especially since we were a small group of just 3 students, there was loads of time to practice each skill. The price is unbeatable as well. Thumbs up! :)

amazing !

Such a good open water course, you get all the information and it’s explained to you very clearly. My Instructor Rob was amazing and made you feel really comfortable and confident the whole time. 10/10 recommend. Was really nice to dive at Fitzroy island one day and the reef he other.

PADI open water dive course

The course itself has good coverage of what you need to know but my instructor wasn’t the best at connecting with the participants. He was a bit sexist and assuming. He favoured certain students over others and presumed anyone who didn’t catch on right away to be dumb. He didn’t listen to us when we were having trouble with equipment and always insisted he was right and we were wrong. This particular instructor wasn’t very interactive, he talked non stop but didn’t engage with us at all. The classroom time was tedious because things would be explained over and over even though we all understood because he assumed we didn’t, but he never asked or gave us a chance to say so. He gets the information across but not in a fun way. He really pushed selling the more expensive trips but they aren’t worth it. Hope that helps you in your decision. Maybe a different instructor would have been better. I think he tried but he didn’t have our interest truly at heart.

Sorry to hear about the experience with your instructor. We will pass your comment onto our HR department for assessment. Thanks for travelling with us and hope you will enjoy more diving around the world!
