I've visited Bermuda a number of times in the past and have done "Lesson Dives" with BWD about 5 times or so. Each time the staff asked why I don't just get certified already?!?
Well - this time I made a special trip to the island to do just that. I flew in from Northen NJ and spent 3 days one-on-one with Martin (one of their Instructors) doing my pool time and open-water dives. I have been a CPR and EMS Instructor in NJ for 15+ years and know how difficult it can be to Instruct such an intense subject in a realitively short period of time. Especially material that ultimately has peoples lives in your hands.
I did all of the PADI eLearning on-line at home and all of the practical water and equipment excercises with Martin in BDA. Let me tell you something - I can't begin to explain how good he was at this. He was patient, clear, concise and constructive. He had every good quality a teacher of any subject should have without any of the bad ones. The result was the best learning experience of my life and a PADI Open Water Certification.
It doesn't stop there though. The entire Dive Team (Owner Chris, Ina and Tom) were all great. They new when to have fun and knew when it was time to get down to business. Safety was a priority and their knowledge of the island and dive sites was incredible.
I look forward to diving with BWD in the near future!!!
