What people are saying about Adventure Scuba.
I started my basic PADI training with your school earlier this year. I did the theory and the indoor pool sessions here in NYC, and just completed my open water session a bit over a month ago while in Mexico.
There was some confusion while I was there as to my credentials, since I had forgotten to bring my PADI logbook / card with me. Tom was kind enough to dig through your records and fax my information to the school in Mexico, so I was able to get everything sorted out in time for the open water session.
I just wanted to say thank you -- the open water dive was truly a wonderful experience, more magical and captivating than I had expected. I was a bit nervous on the first day, but the lessons I learned from Adventure Scuba had prepared me very well, and by the second day I was able to relax a little and pay more attention to just enjoying the surroundings.
My initial plan was just to get the license to see what it's like, but I wasn't sure whether scuba diving was for me -- I thought I was more of a skydiving/adrenaline type of person. But floating underwater, taking in all the natural beauty so close to one's fingertips, and realizing how much I have yet to learn about navigating effortlessly -- I'm already looking forward to my next scuba trip. I feel like this will be a lifelong hobby :-)
Cheers and Happy Holidays!
