Fantastic, very knowledgeable and confident instructor. Made me feel very comfortable in the open water. Felt safe next to Mike! He made my dives fun and completely removed any fears I had of diving in the open ocean. Mike made the diving, safety and marine life easy to understand. Course is very interesting; I would highly recommend it to any of my friends.

Turtle, Octopus, Moray eels and many, many other beautiful fishes. It's just a bit sad about some of the corals.

Great open water course with Natasha. With English being her second language, we took the theory nice and slow but Natasha still managed to ace all of the exams, the water skills were the easy part! Well done Natasha, it was a pleasure to teach you.

Good course, Joe was interested in all aspects of the course. Had no difficulties understanding the theory. He was however a big guy, 6'8" and broad so consumed a lot of air, 15 ltr tank next time will help that issue!

I am so glad that we took the course with Dive The World and lucky to have Dan as our instructor, he is so cool. His lessons were very clear and understandable, all the tips, info, etc were easy to understand. I absolutely enjoyed the course, and Mr Justin was also very helpful.

Magnificent dive sites, I've never seen things like that before. So cool!!

Thank you!! We had a GREAT time! Hope to meet you again, thank you so much Dan.

I had a great time, it's a life changing experience. My instructor was great, helped me lots, and answered all my questions. The thing I enjoyed the most ... was of course the underwater scenery. My only problem was with keeping neutral buoyancy but I got better as the course went on and I will continue to practice.

AMAZING! The weather was really on our side so we could see almost everything. We saw so much marine life, I couldn't name them all.

Put down more ship wrecks, to help the corals that have been ruined.

Really enjoyed teaching Rey and Grace. Rey managed to improve his buoyancy as the course went on. Congrats to both!

The course was awesome. Dan was patient and clear, the information was detailed and clear and the theory and pool work was comprehensive yet brisk. No problems. On the dives the conditions were perfect and Dan was patient and warm.

The sites were awesome. Great conditions, warm water, little or no current and a lot of sea life. Visibility was good to fair, but I was delighted at all we could see.

I'm very happy recommending the course to others!

Has to be the easiest student I've taught to date. Really enthusiastic and loved the diving.

Thanks! Mike was a great instructor.
