Go Pro Diving Allowed me to Succeed in Achieving my Open Water Scuba Instructor

It was challenging for me to wake up at 6am every morning but because of the supportive staff at GoPro and the amazing other students, the long days seemed to fly by.

all the mentors at go pro cayman sure knows what they do. there are 12 of us in the idc, a big group they say, but everything run smoothly. the instructors were positively pushing everyone to be at their best. It was so much fun! By the time we did our exams everyone was so ready and it was the easiest part of the entire process. Thanks again to Ash, Larry, Steve and Vinod.

Rescue to Instructor

Go Pro Cayman is top of its class. I did the rescue-divemaster-instructor course with ash and vinod. it was very fun, with lots of hard work mixed in. Vinod is probably the best teacher in the world, very experienced, patient, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Ash was very helpful and has been in the buisness a long time, some of the best time having a beer and listening to stories. if i did it again, i might would have gotten a cheaper place to rent, but i would definitly be going with GoPro. Love the cayman islands.

Great experience

I can't say enough about Ash and Vinod and my experience with Go Pro Cayman. I had an amazing time while becoming a padi pro. Vinny was the best instuctor, he is such an interesting guy full of stories, vinny was so patient and considerate. He made the trainning and my time in cayman very special. Ash is a great guy too, he went out of his way to always ensure I had everything I needed and that my time in cayman was enjoyable. Thanks to the two awesome guys at go pro cayman. I would definitely recommend go pro to anyone whether they are looking to become a padi pro or just to go out for a dive while visiting cayman! :)

Awesome IDC

I had a blast doing my IDC with Go Pro Cayman. Everything was very well managed and organised, and the staff made the course a fun and exciting time. Ash and the rest of the staff were very professional but kept it easygoing at the same time. At the end I think everyone one of us were well prepared for the examinations. And like everyone said it was very easy at the end. Overall everything my time with Go Pro was awesome and I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone. Thanks again Ash, and the rest of the staff for an awesome course! Cheers!

First class operation.

I can highly recommend Go Pro Cayman to anyone wanting to begin or advance their skills and knowledge in diving. I had been diving for over 40 years and decided to become an dive instructor and leave the traditional business grind behind. My daughter had previously graduated as an instructor from Go Pro Cayman and I was very impressed with the knowledge and confidence she gained and that she found work immediately. She has gone onto set up her own dive business now. So I enrolled in the Dive Master to Instructor program. Like my daughter I immediately found employment in the dive industry here in Cayman upon graduating. The interning dive master program is an excellent way to become familiar with different dive operations and apply your classroom knowledge. You also make connections in the local dive community that help you in finding the right job fit. The other key point about Go Pro Cayman is that they look after their students ensuring that they have accommodation, transport and even helping with grocery runs. Although I didn't need that assistance it was important to me as a parent to know that my daughter had it when she was away from home and I saw it on a day to day basis while I was in the courses. Overall I had an excellent experience and I have made some very good friends.

Go Pro Cayman is the way.

This IDC was loads of fun. On the first day you'll think " Oh man this is gonna be hard and long." But on the second day it feels like " Man i wish we still had the whole day left still". The classes are entertaining ,sometimes long and a little boring but add a few jokes and questions in there, believe me you'll get a good laugh. Unless you're that shitty attitude, can't handle a joke person, then you're fked. Other than that i still wish i was doing my IDC with the group of people i was with was a Blast!!. Down fall is that you had to put some more money in for a few fees and some beer :p , but fk it Put Another Dollar In ,it's worth it. Overall A great journey to hit up.

An amazing trip!

My wife and I visited Grand Cayman in December. On the advice and recommendation of our local Canadian diving club, we got in touch with Go Pro Cayman. The team at Go Pro Cayman was in immediate and constant contact with us as we planned our trip and the entire set of four dives was put together seamlessly from pick-up and drop off directly at our hotel to the dives themselves.



We are already planning a return trip for December 2014 and we will be planning our dives with Go Pro Cayman again.



We highly recommend!

Amazing experience

I really LOVED the diving in the end. I was totally calm and in control when we went into the deep water.



But before, I was scared and worried. I didn't think the practicing in the shallow water went so well. I was feeling really uncomfortable. Water came in my nose and eyes, I had to stop and get up again. At first, I thought the instructor did not like this and that he was annoyed. But I will never know what was going on his mind..

He just kept on going and took us into the deep water. I was completely fine there! He took an eye on my sister and my father and he helped them with keeping down. It was good that we were with so few.



I was scared about the breathing. I was told that I should always keep on breathing and not hold my breath. With the practicing, I was one big chaos and I caught myself holding my breath sometimes. That worried me. I think it would be good to explain more about the breathing and when and why it becomes dangerous.



Overall, I had an amazing experience. I really would love to do it more!

Excellent Instruction for first time divers

My husband and I haven't done that much diving. He went to Cayman years ago as a kid and I only dove once prior. I was a little anxious/excited because I'd heard Cayman was a great place to dive and almost everyone we met were experienced divers. Spike was our instructor at Go Pro and he immediately put us at ease because his instruction as so thorough and he was patient answering all our questions. We did two dives with Spike, one at Cheesburger reef in town as beginners and then Turtle Reef in West Bay. Turtle Reef shouldn't be missed, amazing marine life lives on the mini-wall!



Ash was totally helpful and accommodating in driving us around and setting up the dives. We also stayed in his apartments on Melmac in South Sound. It was great, living like a local with our own porch, grill and full kitchen. (The island can be expensive if you have to rely on the hotel for everything.)



We're both thinking about coming back to Cayman for a long weekend to get certified with Go Pro.

Trip like a Dolphin

Go Pro Cayman was the best experience I've had!

They tell you straight how things go which is really on-the-fly and I feel is the best way because it forces you to have an adaptive mindset which is exactly what you need if you're becoming an instructor, like I did!

They teach you what you need to know then let you figure out a lot of the work on your own via E-Learning while still being there to guide you in any trivia you run into which makes for the best instructors.

Ash provides pick-ups and drop-offs plus a grocery run once a week!

The amount of dives I would do in a single week was incredible, during my advanced course I was diving up to 20 dives a week! Once it came to my IDC though there were't as many dives but they were quite different, haha!

During my stay on Cayman I made a ton of friends and connections that will be in my life for the long run. The amount of training and feedback I received and continue to makes me feel grateful I chose Go Pro Cayman!

Highest Respect for these Instructors

I did several courses including my IDC with Go Pro Cayman, and I was beyond pleased with the quality of the education as well as the way Ash & Spike went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and ready to be an instructor. By the time it came for my exam, I knew I was well prepared. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone interested in becoming a dive professional. Student apartments are also nice!

Great IDC Experience

I could have taken my Instructor Development Course (IDC) much closer to home but I am glad I made the trip to GC. My family has dove GC for several years and Go Pro Cayman was highly recommended by dive professionals on the island. Ash, assisted by Spike, did not let me down. I especially enjoyed completing my instructor specialties with Ash after the IDC and Instructor Exam (IE).



Although I am already employed at home, I was impressed that Ash, who has extensive dive contacts, assisted my fellow students find dive instructor employment on the island.

I had only 4 days to take my Open Water certification, and with Go Pro Cayman everything went perfect. Very good organization allowed me to do the divings in just 3 days and it was an amazing experience, thanks to the instructors and their skills. I discovered a new world underwater and I have to thank them.
