I was looked after vey well during my Open Water Course, everything was done at my pace, super thorough, and was allowed to try a twinset after qualifying!



I worked with Oli to tidy up my existing training levels, and then progressed onwards to achieve 60m CCR. A big emphasis was made on how the team strengthens or weakens the dive depending on the individuals. Very Solid Training!


A+ Would Recommend

I did all my advanced, twin and technical training with Oli. Training can be challenging but promotes you to grow.



I've done a range of OC and CCR technical programs with Oli and continue to have regular coaching days to maintain and improve my skill set.
