Testimonials
Lynette Werning

"My husband wanted to learn to dive and I was fearful. We put a toe in the water by purchasing a Groupon. Jeff, Ian and Dave were patient and thorough instructors. We've been certified for two years now and purchased all of our gear at Aqua Hut. In addition to the Fun Dives at the quarry, we've had the opportunity to dive in Mexico three times. We definitely want to do more and would never have explored this world without the guys at Aqua Hut."

Jim and Deb Fenn

"I have been a diver since 1969 but my wife, Deb, was a non-diver. After I made some dives without her on some cruises she decided that, despite barely being able to swim and being very intimidated by the water, she wanted to try SCUBA. This really shocked me but we stopped by Aqua Hut and she did an introductory dive in the pool. On the way home she said that wasn't so bad. Shortly after our arrival at home she was asking questions about my dive gear. The very next day she said I really think I want to take lessons. I can do this'. And she did. Ian patiently instructed Deb who was certified, I am so proud to say, at the age of 60. She has since dived in local quarries, the Cayman Islands where she made her 25th dive and made her 35th dive on an Aqua-Hut trip to Bonaire.
Lessons learned:
1 - It's never too late.
2 - Diving is something you can share together.
3 - YOU can do it."

"From day one of stepping foot into Aquahut they made me feel relaxed and comfortable like I was already part of their elite group before even setting foot in the water. They helped me find gear to fit my budget, the let me learn at my own pace and most of all they made it fun. Three years later I've earned the level of AOWD (Advanced Open Water Diver), met tons of great people, made a lot of new friends and I'm still having a lot of fun. Thanks, Jeff, Ian, and the rest of the Aquahut Family. Oh yea, here I come Master Diver level."
