I signed up to the SSI Open Water course after reading reviews & being recommended, I wasn’t sorry! It was the most exciting experience I’ve ever had & I felt so safe.
My instructor, Graeme was extremely patient, informative & efficient. I had some issues with getting out of the water with my BC & tank, it’s pretty heavy for a first timer, and a petite one at that lol. It wasn’t an issue. Graeme & the other instructors immediately helped me & as I was pretty embarrassed, they also reassured me. On next few dives, with my new found confidence & strength & under Graeme’s watchful eye, I had no problems at all.
I enjoyed my OW so much, myself & the other 3 in my group all signed up to the Advanced Course straight away which was even more fantastic. Amazing dives, good visibility & I felt completely safe.
The equipment is well maintained & all the staff in the office to the restaurant to the instructors are professional & friendly. It’s a really great vibe.
I loved my experience so much, I’m due to fly back in a couple of weeks to continue diving with Big Blue & hopefully take my diving up to the next level!
