It took me over 30 years to drum up the courage to learn to dive - and I couldn't have asked for a better, kinder or more patient instructor in Alex; or a better, kinder team in Carlos and Claudia - the incredible group of people who make up the Lanzarote Non Stop Divers team in Playa Blanca. The amount of trust they engendered in both myself and my wife can not be underestimated. This is a seriously professional group of people, and safety comes first in absolutely everything they do.
A major bonus of learning with this dive school is the portion of in water learning that normally takes place in a pool, is done in the beautiful sheltered cove just below the dive center.
I took the 'Open Water' PADI course, which includes level 1 Scuba Diver and level 2 Open Water Diver. I was terrified going in to this as it's the first formal learning situation I've been in since i was 18 (i'm now 52). Alex is totally student focused, and adapted her instruction to suit my learning style.
I also had some prior commitments which meant I couldn't attend certain days, and the team tailored my course around the days and times I could do. They also compressed the course so I could fit it in before leaving Playa Blanca to head north.
The open water dives were amazing - Las Colorados and the Atlantic Museum. Alex is a qualified museum guide, and her briefing was great - we knew what to look out for, and once we were underwater she helped us all to see the easily missed angel rays - they sit on the bottom and let the sand cover them :) beautiful creatures!
The most important thing is that i felt safe all the time. My wife couldn't dive because of chronic sinus problems, but the team included her, and she snorkeled with us in the bay, and at the first open dive site. She felt totally reassured that i was in the best hands, and is now using my PADI course book to understand what I'm doing, and be safer in the water as well.
If you get one chance to learn to dive, do it with Lanzarote Non Stop Divers - you will be learning with the best team, in a beautiful location, and you will have the most fantastic experience of your life!!!
Thanks Alex, Carlos, and Claudia <3
See you in 2019!
