I started my open water training with Ashley back in Jan 2021 in California and now I’m progressing towards my AOW cert here in Washington! I’ve had every problem a new scuba diver can encounter – fear to breathe through a regulator, mask cleaning panic, buoyancy, etc, but I could always trust Ashley to help me through them. Apart from patience, Ashley and Jake have been excellent explaining things to me in different ways so I can understand. Now I’ve done over 20 dives and counting 🙂 If you want to train with an instructor who cares for your safety and genuinely wants to help you become a better diver, Jade Scuba is your choice. PS: They arrange fun trips occasionally, dive trip to Catalina Island, weekend escape to Utah to dive in hot sprints, etc. Check out their website!
