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!
