Hi, I recently got my Open Water Scuba certification from Deep Sea Divers Den. I must say, I had the time of my life. The course was spread across 4 days, First 2 covering theory and the next 2 diving.
Instructors at the Deep Sea Divers Den were friendly and well qualified. They took time to explain things if you didn’t understand something. I got trained under Danny for the first 3 days and on the 4th day my instructor was Annie. Though, I had a different instructor on the last day, There was no hassle, no confusions. I was well organised. They both were friendly and terrific divers. Thanks to both of ’em. I highly recommend Divers Den for your next scuba venture. 🙂
