Testimonials

Our instructor Joey always made us feel safe and well-prepared, and we had a ton of fun with him. We were a small group of 5 and always had enough time to ask questions and clarify concepts. Can't say enough about what a beautiful place Caye Caulker Marine Reserve is to dive. The open water dives were filled with fish, turtles, nurse sharks and coral. Even the confined water training dives were in gorgeous shallow waters with marine life.

Joey is the man! Joey told me to just relax... And enjoy diving. It can be intimidating diving in the open ocean with 5 foot waves smacking you in the face but Joey always remained cool and calm and helped me to learn to do so as well. Diving was fun, safe, and go way out of there way to show you cool stuff.

My girlfriend did her open water cetification with Joey. He was proffesional, knowledgeable and confident, and made her feel comfortable both above and under water. When she felt a little sea sick he made sure she was ok and feeling well again and overall is a really great guy!

My friend and I just came back from our discover scuba dive and LOVED it. Our instructor Joey was cool, calm and very thorough with explaining to us what we had to do to dive properly. He assisted my friend when she was having trouble getting used to her gear and I felt really safe in his hands. If I had more time here, I would definitely come back here and do my Open Water certification.
