We were recommended Sierra Dive by another dive centre in Nevada during the planning of a recent vacation. I was looking for an operation to assist us with getting the PADI Altitude Certification and as we were vacationing near Lake Tahoe it made sense to tie the two together.
The shop is really easy to find even with Sat Nav and is well organised and extremely well stocked for both retail and rental. We were kitted and all the paperwork completed within 90 minutes which is very good in our experience of vacation diving - Will and Jasper were both amusing and accommodating for our various needs.
The diving day at Sand Harbor, Lake Tahoe required an early start to ensure we got parking and to accommodate the drive over Mount Rose which all formed part of the course. We met Scott Hagen our instructor and had two very pleasant if undemanding dives in excellent viz with all our course work weaved seamlessly into the pre dive and inter dive Surface Intervals.
Retrun of kit was effortless and top marks for getting our PICs cards to us in the UK within 11 days.
We dive a lot on vacation and Sierra Divers is one of the best operations we have had the pleasure to dive with. We were not in Reno/Lake Tahoe long enough to do the area justice but plan to return and we will look up Sierra Divers again.
