The company was very thorough in trying to teach you about use of the scuba equipment and safety. They teach you initially in a pool, then take you to a nearby inlet. However, it was a little too much, too quickly. Entry into the water and going down should be a little slower. I suggest fewer participants and more time for the excursion. Several of the participants ultimately didn't go down and swim around, and perhaps shallower water for beginners would be better. Read Less

A good trip. Well handled. My daughter is not certified but she did great even with some pretty choppy seas.

What an awesome dive spot! 2 instructors on our dive, 4 students counting the 2 of us. Some freedom to leave the group as long as we stayed at depth and within sight. Water was a little murky from the unseasonably high winds and current ... Read More
What an awesome dive spot! 2 instructors on our dive, 4 students counting the 2 of us. Some freedom to leave the group as long as we stayed at depth and within sight. Water was a little murky from the unseasonably high winds and current so we never strayed more than 20 feet away. Read Less

The Scuba with Red Sail Sports is done properly with plenty of land and pool based instruction before heading out to sea with experienced PADI instructors. Felt safe and confident all the way with them.

Red Sail did a wonderful job with our group of about eight people. We all felt safe and well taken care of.

I have scuba dove countless times, but I'm not certified. My wife has only gone a couple times, but she really enjoyed it, so she wanted to go. The two girls who ran through training at the pool were helpful and everything was comfortable. We were led to the boat to take us to the dive spot, and we were merged on the boat with three other groups of certified divers. When we got to the dive point, our instructors kind of disappeared. She hadnt assisted 3 out of the 4 people having difficulty in the choppy water, and they had to get back in the boat. My wife convinced me to go without her, so I just kind of joined up with another group. Read Less
