The Hardest but Most Rewarding Course I have Ever Taken

This last week-end (6&7 Aug. 2011) I did my rescue divers cert. It was the hardest but most rewarding course I’ve ever taken so far at SNS. It makes you appreciate how hard you work and how hard the instructors work to get you qualified. I can not say enough about this class and how you feel after you get certified. Thank you Sam!!!!

Good Service, Good Equipment, and a Really Good and Friendly Staff

Hi! I just wanted to thank you all at Skin N Scuba for an incredible year of diving!! I have tried to find a good dive store here in Norway, but nothing is like Skin N Scuba!! You have good service, good equipment, and a really good and friendly staff!! You always feel like you are at home when you visit the store! And on the trips you feel like you are traveling with your family! Definitely a great place to do scubadiving and have a scubachat!  Thank you Sam, and Skin N Scuba for everything! Greetings from Norway!

Thanks, Sam!

Just got back from a great week of diving with the Sun Dancer II in Belize. Sunshine, 80′s, sharks, dolphins, Blue Hole, best food I’ve ever had on a dive trip, etc. This was probably my best all around liveaboard trip. New Atomic Cobalt Computer and Ikelite case for my Flipshare performed flawlessly. Thanks, Sam!

A Great Resource for My Family

This shop has been a great resource for my family. From getting my teenage daughter ready and certified so she could travel independently and dive safely in Fiji, to helping our foreign exchange student from Norway learn, develop and grow into diving opportunities. The resources they offer whether it personal advice and service or outstanding rental equipment and training is top notch. The instructors are above and beyond what you can find at many operations. They are a locally run operation which understands the value of creating a relationship with their clients. And I almost forgot to mention, they offer great dive travel opportunities. If I had known this I would have joined in a long time ago.

Sam Went Above and Beyond

Just completed the classroom and pool portion of the Open Water Scuba Diving class this weekend. Steve, Ellen, Ernie, and Gabriel were all fantastic!! Sam went above and beyond in helping me find a mask that worked for me. I would recommend Skin N Scuba to anyone interested in learning to scuba dive or build on a current PADI Certification. I can’t wait until we can take the Advanced Open Water Diver and other specialty classes. Skin N Scuba is by far the best dive shop in the KC area!! Thank you.
