    The Advanced Open Water course was incredibly fun, very informative, and allowed me to continue to practice the skills learned in the OW course. Chris Alexander is always on point with his diving wisdom and ability to encourage and teach newer divers is second to none. Continued thanks to Robert, Jim, Tracy, Chris, and Mark O. Hands down the best there is!

    Scubatude did a great job preparing me for the advanced open water dives. The weather on Catalina was rainy in early March, but Jodi's sunny disposition and good advice made the weekend a success. Thanks Jim, Tracy, Chris and especially Robert. Scubatude is the best!
