The completion dives were much more fun than I thought they would be, as I thought there would be a higher proportion of testing per dive. We loved it, and can&rsquo;t wait to get back underwater together.&nbsp;<strong style="box-sizing: border-box; font-weight: bold;">I thought the whole process &ndash; training stateside and then certifying on vacation &ndash; was definitely the way to go</strong>, and have been talking this up to everyone I know. Don&rsquo;t be surprised if you start seeing father/son pairs who know Alex and me, because we are recommending Adventure Scuba, and you, by name.</em></p> <p style="box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 10px 20px; color: #333333; font-family: Roboto, serif; font-size: 15px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 24.375px; orphans: auto; text-align: start; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 1; word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;"><em style="box-sizing: border-box;">Thanks so much for all your help and encouragement.
