TOP MARKS FOR PROFESSIONALLY RUN DIVE SHOP AND COURSES
Visit Date: July 2012
I recently completed my PADI open water dive coarse with Dive Frontiers in Perth W.A
I am writing this review to advise other people thinking of doing their dive course to seriously consider Dive Frontiers as the best people to learn from .
The course was professionally handled from start to finish and I am more than happy I chose them to do my coarse with.
I did the course with my 17 y.o step daughter and my boss.
I went to their shop in Balcatta and spoke to Glenn Bailey who answered all my questions and provided me with all the appropriate paperwork, books and DVD's..
He was able to fit the course to suit our work schedule and all the dive equipment provided ( and EVERYTHING is provided , if you dont have your own ) was new , well looked after, clean, of top quality and a wide range to suit all sizes.
Special deals are provided for students wanting to buy any equipment also.
He has an immaculate shop which is stocked with the best quality and value dive equipment. He only stocks equipment that passes Dive Frontiers high standards, and equipment he has found to be best from personal experience. They have an impressive dive equipment servicing area and can fill tanks with quality filtered air, for all types of diving.
I have since found out that Glenn is a dive legend with a huge amount of experience and qualifications and has dived in places that most would never dare. He was easy to talk to and his knowledge of diving and dive equipment makes his advice second to none. He easily provides all the facts you could ever want to know about different brands and models available for diving, as well as places to dive and things to see.
Our course was run by Chris Dodd who is a fantastic, dedicated teacher who is highly qualified in many types of diving, and is extremely experienced and dived all over Australia and the World .
His passion for diving, the ocean and its creatures is inspiring and I think he may be part fish. He made himself available to answer any questions or work 'one on one' at anytime during and between our scheduled classes
He was enthusiastic, never cut corners, and went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable , confident and completely understanding everything we were being taught.
Chris is an excellent teacher and at all times we felt safe and that we were learning from a true professional. We had thousands of laughs and a fantastic time was had by us all.
So I can highly recommend Dive Frontiers as the best place to go to get any of the many dive courses , equipment , dive trips , refills , servicing, information or advice or just chat about the underwater world. I am extremely glad that I chose them to finally do my dive course and to teach my step daughter.
