Dan Vowles

Student comments:  It was an enjoyable and exciting experience. Dan was patient with us throughout the 3 days. I had a problem equalizing at times and also had issues hovering, but managed to settle it during the 4th & 5th dive. Overall, i'd recommend this to others back home ;-). We went to Racha Noi & Racha Yai - saw quite a number of fishes, managed to see a turtle at Racha Yai/Noi?. Saw plenty of coral too.
Instructor comments:  Some small equalizing problem but overcome in the end. A real joy to teach.

Student comments:  Everything about the course, it is enjoyable and fun. The challenges i faced are not that hard to overcome as my instructor is knowledgable and always advised accordingly. As it is my first time diving, all the dive sites i've visited are interesting. It is a great adventure to be exploring the seas underwater. It would be even more awesome to have 6 dives ;-).
