Hi Andrew, 

“Learning to dive in Melbourne, Australia with Aquability was an absolute pleasure. The water was a bit cold, but we got well-equiped to overcome the harsh conditions. 
Although the water was a bit cold, we had perfect conditions when diving at Rye Pier and in the open water. Only one time we experienced bad visibility and therefore me and my buddy actually got lost from the rest of the group, but as we got taught by a great instructor btw (Andrew), we searched for the other group for 60 seconds before ascending to the surface. By taking the Open Water Padi Course at Aquability I now feel ready to go to the great barrier during the spring break. In overall an absolute pleasure taking the course through Aquability, with some great instructors! –

 Kind regards

Hi Mark
Thanks again for everything, we truly had an amazing time over the past couple weekends. – Micelle L 14/3/17

Thanks very much Mark for teaching my younger two children! It sounds like it was a very positive experience; from an experienced diver and teacher.
It sounds like we will meet and perhaps dive together in the near future!  –  Di K 1/1/17

Hi Andrew. 
Thank you again for your patience and guidance on last week’s dive – It’s truly a reflection of the great ongoing support you and Mark continue to offer and makes for a seamless dive experience. I hope to back in the water with you again soon.  – Ray B 29/12/16
