With a maximum of four students to each of our instructors, you will gain confidence and experience unmatched by any other dive lessons. With this approach, your instructor can more easily target specific areas that you need attention to, rather than wasting your time while they concentrate on other students. As a result you will get more time having fun diving, finishing the course a much better diver. This lets you complete your course with only 2 days of in-water training.

(note: if you have a group of more than three you can still learn together all we do is add another instructor to keep the student to instructor ratio at a maximum of 4 students for each instructor)

We have been teaching in the area every week for 10 years and have never seen a dangerous shark. Although the risks of encountering a dangerous shark in the areas are negligible, to ensure your peace of mind, we teach all our open water courses under the protection of a Shark Shield.

"Patient instructors"

Comments: Right from the start, the staff are Abyss where happy to answer questions. I had done my OW with Abyss, but this was for my son. He had never been in the ocean and sufferes from a stutter so speaking is a challenge for him. The instructors catered to him and the shop allowed me to haunt the premises for his confined diver. Friendly and helpful, I have been to a few dive shops and this is by far the best I have experienced.

Comments: Cem was amazing, making even diving in 13 degree water in August fun! Abyss also did a great job of putting together 2-day course combining flexibility of eLearning. This works really well, and for me, this is certainly key differentiator for Abyss.

Comments: Had an AWESOME two days with our instructor Cem. What a champion - he really took the time to attend to every question we had about this new sport. The small groups made a huge difference in terms of learning, and the friendly staff made a huge difference in terms of having fun. I have already recommended this course to all my friends and I can highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to open themselves up to a whole new world.
