Such an amazing experience doing the discovery tour, Joey made us feel so comfortable and safe in the water and showed us so many neat things during our dives. Wish we were staying there just a little longer to have gotten certified with you guys!!! And yes we would show up an hour early on purpose to go again!

My wife and I completed our Open Water Course with Joey. The teaching was highly professional and thorough. We felt safe at all times and left Blue Wave Divers feeling like a confident diver! All the staff were very friendly and helpful we would highly recommend to other travellers.
