I obtained my PADI basic open water in 2011. Have been diving 10 times since then, but hadn't gone in over 2 years. Asked Laura to take me out for a refresher dive and it was my best one yet! She was very professional and knowledgable. Went over all the basics with me prior to getting into the water. Her... More

I have peen PADI certified for under a year. Unfortunately, when you live in a land locked state your dive options are limited. Although my original instructors were great, I still felt unsure about my scuba skills. After researching private tours I came across Laura and I am so glad I did! Laura is great! She's patient, knowledgeable, and above... More

Laura is a life changer. I was certified over 30 years ago, and only dove once or twice since then. My most recent dive was five years ago, and in all honesty, I wasn't that confident in my abilities. I decided to spend a 3 days with Laura this month for a one-on-one refresher, and I am amazed by how... More

Wow....Laura is amazing. She is so professional and incredibly knowledgeable. She taught my two young children how to snorkel and took care of them like they were her own children. We can't wait to all get Scuba lessons from her.

I found Laura via her YouTube videos. I had one prior experience with snorkeling in which I was overcome by great anxiety in my attempt to begin snorkeling. Because of that, I chose to take advantage of the private lessons Laura offers. Laura worked with me over parts of two days. She was able to help me overcome my fears.... More

I contacted Laura at PrivateScubaLessons.com because I had a very limited amount of time to work on some advanced SCUBA courses and I felt that private lessons would enable me to move along at a much faster pace and accomplish more in a shorter amount of time than I could ever do in a group with other divers.
