Three of our group (16, 18 & 18 yo) did their PADI Open Water qualifications last week with Giaco (pronounced “Jacko”). Giaco was an amazing instructor. He made the whole experience interesting, fun and above all, safe.
My wife and I did a refresher dive with Bob who again, was an informative, knowledgeable and helpful dive master. We finally did the Museum dive together.
We all had a great time and would thoroughly recommend Dive College.
