there are a few reasons that I chose to use this dive shop for my certification: 1) my boyfriend recommended them and 2) they had a groupon deal :-) After going through the certification class I would whole-heartedly recommend them! Our instructors (because it will vary) were the owner (Jeff Gordon) and Daniela Petrescu. Our class was all women, and they even told us that they get a high number of women taking their courses (and I understand why). I was nervous about getting into the water, not because I don't like the water, but because I have been a swimmer all my life and so the idea of making sure to not hold my breath was a little concerning to me. After doing the portion in the swimming pool before getting in the lake I had no worries and actually some of the exercises they had us do made us prepared for anything that might happen in the water. The instructors were so easy to work with, and definitely know their stuff! The common question all weekend was "Do you want to hear a joke?" ;-) I will be going back to them for quite a few more certification levels, and to join some of their dive vacations they plan throughout the year!

Got this for my girlfriend before a trip to Belize so she could get certified and dive with me. She was very scared about scuba diving but loves the water and wanted to try it. The owner personally worked with her and two other women to reassure them and go at their own pace. The weather conditions during their practice dives were very poor, but he went out of his way to make them as comfortable as possible and help them practice their skills. I'm glad he took the time so we were able to share the experience of diving together. Would highly recommend this shop for anyone interested in getting certified, especially if they are nervous about it or have reservations.

Excellent service. The instructor and everyone else I dealt with were all very knowledgeable and friendly. Class ran smoothly and there was no bait and switch for the deal like a lot of similar groupons. Would highly recommend them.

From Our Editors

Maximum Scuba's team of PADI-certified instructors caters to all levels of aquatic adventurer with a wide roster of name-brand equipment and all-inclusive classes. PADI open-water certification courses employ textbooks and at least four open-water dives to acquaint underwater neophytes with the joy of subaquatic breathing, enabling them to finally explore timeshare options in Atlantis. The PADI advanced open-water certification course sends previously certified divers on five adventure dives, plumbing watery depths to discover ocean-floor wrecks. Other specialty classes deepen underwater adventures and arm explorers with the know-how to defeat Blackbeard's ghost by teaching skills in spearfishing and technical or cave diving.
