Read What Others Say About Our PADI Rescue Diver Course...

"I have just completed my PADI rescue diver course under the excellent tuition from Mike at PR diving. Mike explained the procedures and diving technicalities in a concise and professional manner. Holly and Mike are most welcoming in their shop in PR, both friendly and very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the course especially pulling a six footer up the beach at beautiful Amadores. Phew!! Then, nextday we did two 20 metre + dives to top off a great weeks holiday. Thanks Mike and Holly. See you soon"
