They have told me that I am way more prepared than any other starting employee they have ever had. That's where I owe everyone there thanks. I feel confident in what I am doing, and it has shown. I want to thank everyone there for teaching me what it takes to be a diver, and giving me the knowledge and confidence I need.

Excellent school, awesome instructors. I am so glad I went to DiveSafe, they have helped me to get lots of work after graduation!
- James
The instructors were professional and fun, I appreciated the constructive criticism. The projects were hard but teach you a lot.
- SCUBA Grad 2017
I did not really know what to expect from a commercial dive course, but Divesafe provided a great experience and a course that more than prepares you for the diving industry. Also incredibly helpful getting work for recent graduates. I had three or four opportunities right out of school thanks to the Divesafe staff. All in all I learned a lot and had a great time doing it. Still have nightmares about that birdhouse though!
- Paul Hinton
Divesafe gave me the skills needed to be a commercial diver. All of the instructors are top notch and have a ton of knowledge to share. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. DiveSafe grad 2016
- Kane Punnett
I finished the commercial scuba class and swim away impressed, educated, and supported. The training and equipment are top notch and the staff are friendly, reliable, and knowledgeable. I go out into the underwater world equipped with practical skills while knowing Divesafe is there for me, like a family, providing, support, encouragement, job postings, and advice. If I could give more stars in this review I would! DiveSafe Grad 2016
- Rob Field
Ongoing support and contact about future opportunities has lead to work immediately after the course. Biological surveys, boat work and now on a urchin harvester Kirby. Rock on Divesafe!! Couldn't be more prepared. DiveSafe International Education
- Matthew Kirby
Ahoy just completed my occupational unrestricted scuba with nitrox last week. What a jumpstart into the commercial diving world. Divesafe has an outstanding dive and ofifice staff helping you all the way though.
- Matthew Kirby
From the beginning they were extremely well organized and clear with a complete class and dive schedule. That definitely helped me complete the course by knowing which day what sections were being covered and allowed me proper preparation prior.
- Matthew Kirby
The SCUBA course was both exciting and educating and the instructors are knowledgeable 10/10 I would refer this course to anyone.
- SCUBA Grad 2017
I really enjoyed the projects. They were great ways to get experience using tools underwater. Before the barrel project I had only used a come-along once on the surface, I learned to use it pretty quick during that project! The bird house project was really fun and way more difficult than I thought it was going to be! - Ethan SCUBA Grad May 2017

I like the diversity of each others experience and how it shaped my own. Where you help someone in one area, they often can help in another. - Robert SCUBA Grad May 2017

Awesome instructors who are knowledgeable, patient and helpful. I learned tons of practical diving skills im going to use in the commercial diving industry. - Alec SCUBA Grad May 2017

Northern Most Education - May 26th


Northern most Education We all know that recreational divers who get trained by BSAC, CMAS, or even PADI in cold water are all round better divers when they go south to warmer waters. In a recent addition of UnderWater magazine, the official ADCI publication, I read a piece written by Aaron Lay from Holland College about how diver’s who train in cold northern waters make better commercial divers...

Tools and underwater welding - May 23rd


Those of us in the UnRestricted Surface Supply course have had a very exciting past couple of weeks. Our instructors decided they trust us enough underwater to try hydraulic and pneumatic tools as well as Broco (an ultrathermic cutting rod) and welding. We started off with suction tools; the airlift and the venturi dredge, which we all agreed suck (not funny? haha). We finished the day off with a...
