    My wife and I found the entire process OUTSTANDING! The entire crew at Scuba Shack care about their students. Their patience taking the time assisting my wife and I during our process obtaining our Open Water Certificate was incredible. There is no other store we would consider supporting due to their attention to detail, passion, and sincerity ensuring each customer (student) is confident and appreciated.

    I cannot recommend the Scuba Shack enough!! I had the best time doing my certification. All of the instructors and dive masters are so knowledgable, accommodating, supportive and fun and made the experience one I will never forget (in the best way).
