"Even though I have been an active SCUBA diver for 25 years, I contracted Jeff's services in 2014 to boost my education and training as far as technical diving, a field that I had little experience with so far. It was apparent on our first meeting that Jeff was the outstanding professional I was looking for, and more. Jeff smoothly put together a one-on-one training that would not only meet the diving agency and his requirements, but also my expectations as a seasoned diver. Jeff made a point to go through every new piece of equipment so I was as prepared as I could be when it was time to hit the water. As expected with technical diving, we ended up in a couple of hairy situations due to challenging dive conditions; all the time spent practicing the challenging in-water skills paid off and made Jeff's training enjoyable, memorable, and extremely formative. Jeff moved away from California early 2017. I would recommend Jeff and his services to anyone in the dive industry but also as a professional as a whole."
