Loved the experience. Ian was the instructor. He has a cool vibe and is very patient. Location is awesome, Novato, hello!! The pool is deep, 12ft. Shop prices are on par with amazon or ebay or whatever eRetail you're into. You could either order 20 different fins and return 19 and deal with all those boxes or visit the shop and then have lunch in Novato. Easy choice..

Rick and his team were SO wonderful. The pool session was a lot of fun and very informative. I left feeling confident in my skills and excited for the Monterey dives. I would highly recommend Pinnacles for anyone looking to get their diving certification.

I called pinnacles dive center last week to figure out how the Groupon works with covid. The person I spoke with was very informative and extremely helpful. I haven't visited this location yet since they are still closed but if the experience is the same one I had during the phone conversation, I'm sure I will leave satisfied.

I would highly recommend the PADI open water certification course at pinnacles dive shop. They provide you with all the necessities to succeed as a new diver. I got certified a week before I went to scuba dive in Indonesia. The instructors were fabulous and I had an amazing time diving in Indonesia thanks to pinnacles dive center. Thanks for preparing me for the trip of a lifetime (see photo)!

My friend and I just took the PADI certification course at Pinnacles in preparation for our trip to Turks and Caicos and it was an awesome experience! The owner, Rick, talked us through the necessary gear before the class so we could try different types and figure out what was best for us. The prices were good, and there is a student discount too! We spent a few days going over the course material using the included textbook, which covers pretty much everything you need to know. Then, we took a short test in person at the shop and had the pool instructional session, both on a Saturday. We were in the pool learning all the skills and equipment from about 10-3. Both instructors were very knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and fun! Finally, we did our 4 training dives in Monterey over one weekend with a few instructors. It was awesome, and we feel totally prepared for diving anywhere now!

Super awesome experience! The instructor was super patient with me even though it took me many tries to clear water from my scuba mask. Really inspires me to get deep into scuba diving as a hobby.

Students begin their PADI open-water diver certification course by scheduling the pool sessions, open-water dives, and picking up the home study materials.
