I really enjoyed my dive with Tony and Hannah (as my dive master by my side). It was really funny. Also they gave me short refresh of the theory because I had a longer break since my last dive.

I had not gone scuba diving in a long time. Panama Dive School took away any apprehensiveness I might have felt and I had an awesome experience with them!!! I would highly recommend them!

My friend and I did two dives today with Tony and had a great time. We saw a big nurse shark on our first dive and got to see a wreck on the second. Great crew and great diving - going back for more tomorrow!
