Thanks for working with me, I have really enjoyed the experience you have born of years of diving that you and Bert have brought to the problems I present you with.

FYI, tonight I have watched back the video of you explaining the dive planning, just to consolidate what I have learnt tonight. On watching back I have to say you did an excellent job of clearly and succinctly explaining dive planning. I am sure as an experienced teacher/instructor you would expect that would be the case, but I thought it was worth giving you the feedback as if no one does, you never know.
Thanks for an awesome cert process for Logan.
Thank you for all your time and knowledge, you and Tim were great during the course, I always felt looked after and confident in such unusual conditions being underwater.
I also just wanted to say thanks for the course. I really enjoyed it and thought the way that you and Tim taught us the practical side was great. It made it really safe and easy to follow for all of us.
Can’t wait for August to do the advanced course!

Highly recommend this scuba learning centre! Mark and his team are dedicated trainers. Mark’s instructions were clear and easy to follow. I can’t thank Tim enough for his reassurance and making sure I was ok throughout my dive. Thank you for your patience and professionalism! ????
Brilliant instructors, well-planned and very fun atmosphere. Mark and Jeremie were very informative and friendly instructors who provided everyone in the group with confidence to succeed. We’re already planning on booking our next PADI course with Aquability! Would highly recommend this PADI dive shop, Mark, Jeremie and the team! – Paul K 9/2/20
I did my Advanced Open Water with Mark. Very educative and professional plus super friendly. Definitely the best experience for me so far. – Valentin P 27/11/19
