As your instructor, my goal is to share years of diving experiences with students seeking Open Water through Divemaster and specialty course certifications as well as cave and technical diving certifications. I offer relaxed, student-focused classes. Student-instructor ratios are usually 4:1 (smaller for some courses) so you receive the best possible instruction. Students complete a course feeling confident in their abilities.
