Savedra’s Marc Hoffman taught us to dive in Feb 2014 (sorry for late review) and he comes with a million platinum stars from me!
Marc's outlook was that he would pass us as soon as we were competent and confident divers, no matter how long it took, which is awesome as I know many people who have been rushed through PADI not feeling comfortable to go back in the water without a refresher even! I was super nervous( especially after the initial PADI lessons that explain all the ways you can die underwater) and there were times when I really thought I would throw in the snorkel however with Marc’s calm instruction and patients I got there in the end! Marc always made sure that he was available for debrief and informal questions after our lessons and was very approachable no matter how silly we thought the question may be!
All of the other staff at Savedra were very warm, welcoming and friendly and really fun to have a beer with after we completed the course!
One little thing I would say that Savedra could probably go in for ordering a few more sizes for equipment (especially for peeps with tiny feet) and definitely could do with some new masks! (this took 1 star off my rating to make it very good) But there was equipment aplenty and everything worked so I shouldn't really complain!
Passing my PADI was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life, and I have since undertaken 7 dives, including a night dive (bet Marc can’t believe it!) none of which would have been possible without the super experience and expertise of the Hoffdog!
So, go dive Sevedra and ask for Marc Hoffman, for your final dive he might even organise a boat trip beach bbq and beer session, mint!!
