Client Testimonial

I actually started to learn in another location but wanted to split my qualification across two locations due to time restraints. I’m so glad I chose Uber Scuba for the final few days – the teaching was far superior to the first location and they really helped to build my confidence. The teaching was completely tailored to my needs and I felt fully supported and encouraged. I got to see so many Turtles which was a life long dream of mine. If you are considering learning to dive this would be the only place I would ever dream of doing it! Thanks so much for turning me into a diver! My thanks to John especially who was so patient with me and encouraged me very step of the way.
