By far the best five experience you could get!
I was in a bind, this gorgeous girl wanted to dive Mantas in Hawaii, and i needed a scuba cert to be her dive buddy - but only had a week until the trip!
Phil got me setup with the online learning program right away, and scheduled dives within a really tight timeframe to help me out. He's a miracle worker.
Class with him was awesome, informative, great gear, safe, and efficient. I have nothing but amazing things to say about the experience. Very comfortable in the water, he taught things smoothly and to my level.
If you don't want to deal with the commercialization and pricing of massive dive shops and also want a super chill instructor that knows what he's doing, Phil is absolutely the guy you want to go to!
