This was lotsa fun for me & my daughters (18 & 14)... Barbara & Tonya were very helpful with accepting my expired Groupon (was outta country for over a month & didn't get a chance to visit before the expiration date). Our instructors, Dean & Ashley, were really good & fun to learn with.. they had us into the 15' deep end of their bada$$ indoor heated pool within about an hour of teaching us some basic skills... highly recommend this as a fun family activity!

This experience could not have been better. I got to work with Instructor Rick and Apprentice David. They were both so amazing. I started out a bit anxious and Instructor Rick was super patient and encouraging. With his guidance, I had made it through all the skills before I even realized it! Definitely getting scuba certified next!
