  • "The guide Reynar was a true gentleman who put all our minds at ease and exuded a sense of calm and fun along with professionalism."

  • 'Reynar was our instructor for the course on day 1 and did an amazing job! He was thorough with all the required skills and was patient when we didn’t get certain tasks the first time around. He took the time to make sure we got all the skills down, so we felt very comfortable with the dry suits.'
