Adrian Burns –
A fantastic course for those on a quick holiday who want to add to their scuba skills. After a brief explanation of what is involved, it’s quickly into the water and learning to become familiar with, operate and then control the DPV. After the dives, its back to class to complete the theory. All done in a day, which was quite pleasing.
The instructor was completely competent and friendly, and knows the area in which we dived well.
Bookings highly recommended as this is a course not run as frequently as as the Open Water or Advanced Open Water courses.
