You have a great program, and also a great staff, it was a pleasure being able to come out and take your course.

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
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

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.
