I do not normally leave reviews for anything, but for this one, I just had too. If you are thinking about scuba, aes is that place to go. Not only are they very knowledgeable, but they are very passionate about what they do. they will not only make sure that you are safe while diving, but they will also help make sure that you have the right gear for you to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. If all of that is not reason enough, everyone there makes you feel like family. At every moment, I felt like I was hanging out with friends. Everyone there was so friendly. everyone that has asked me about getting certified, including my mom and sister, this is where I am sending them. This is hands down the best deal I have ever gotten on Groupon.
I've been wanting to learn scuba for years, saw AES on Groupon, called and talked to Genette, and I'm THRILLED that I chose to use AES! The owners and employees are the best: incredibly patient, very professional, very knowledgeable, and so nice. I would highly recommend AES, Genette and Devon to anyone.
The staff is phenomenal! They did a great job at explaining every part to make me feel prepared for diving in open waters. Some slight minute details were lagging but that comes with the territory and unexpected delays within traveling for the trips the instructors host.
