Great "Vibe" in the store. Sacha was a tremendous resource navigating the proc & cons of the available equipment selection. She explained about fit & function, correct sizing, etc. Very helpful and a lovely person. Then the signups and into the classroom...and the pool.
Our instructor was Kathy. This young woman is really a star. She is perfectly, supremely confident and in charge. After the first 4 hour class, I understood that she is someone to rely on. She is endlessly patient and professional in her knowledge of the subject.
Kathy is tireless in her desire to see her students do well and have a "good time." She is impartial, all inclusive and worked with each of us at the place and pace necessary. She is the best! I have nothing but gratitude for her kindness and sympathy for us all. She made sure that we were all OK at all times.
I'm a geezer who's last contact with scuba diving was Lloyd Bridges. I actually owned one of those snorkels with the ping pong balls. I think I was 12. So the certification program at OFD is a source of pride and confidence...
The people at OFD make deep water diving a safe and pleasant reality. I'm grateful for my experience at Ocean First Divers and will recommend it to others.
All the best
