Testimonials

I have just completed my PADI IDC with Ocean Turtle Diving using ELCAS credits (Armed Forces Resettlement Scheme). The entire team were really helpful from the get go, engaging early in a friendly and positive manner. The course itself, whilst very intense, was a lot of fun and highly informative. It has given me a new found confidence and belief in myself, which goes way beyond the knowledge and skills required to deliver the PADI syllabus, which I have also been afforded in abundance. Thanks team. Great job!
