    I heard about this shop from a friend. I had no clue about diving and was really interested. From the moment I walked through the door everyone at the shop was amazing. I left the class feeling very knowledgeable and confident about my diving. You can see that they really care about the students in the class and want them to be the best divers they can be. I would and have recommended this shop to everyone I see. They deserve more then five stars.
