We at GR8 DIVN provide you with personalized instruction, tailored around your needs and schedule, in an exciting and friendly atmosphere. We have been training GR8 Divers since 1990.

Open Water Diver

Should be Fun
Comprehensive without complication
At a pace that is comfortable for you
With a goal to make you a competent and safe diver
With many Instructors & Agencies in such a hurry to get things done right now, there are people out there trying to get as many divers certified as quickly as possible, just to be able to show numbers, as opposed to creating Scuba Divers.
We at GR8 DIVN value your time, comfort and safety above all else, resulting in Scuba Divers that have an opportunity to enjoy
an amazing lifestyle for the rest of their life.
