If you’re looking to get PADI Certified, you found the right place! I contacted Lee at Georgian Bay Divers to begin the exciting journey toward obtaining PADI Open Water certification. Having little dive industry knowledge, Lee helped immensely every step of the way. He was very quick to respond to emails to answer questions, to help get set up with PADI Elearning and to set up dates for our in-water sessions that worked with well our tight schedule. As a group of four, Lee helped us get set up with the perfect rental equipment for our height weight and gender and he left us with great food for thought should we consider buying our own personal gear down the road. Georgian Bay divers is located in a beautiful setting on the Bay looking across to Christian Island. Our session was later on in September with cooler temperatures, but Lee was great to let us hang in his heated dive centre cabin with hot coffee and snacks between dives! He made sure nobody was too cold or uncomfortable while under water as well. Lee’s easy going attitude, relaxed environment and industry knowledge made for a great few days of learning to dive. His small - almost one on one - group size limit made for easy and quick skills training which allowed us some extra time to simply dive with Lee and explore part of the underwater world of the bay! After his training our whole group is comfortable and confident to rent equipment and dive on our own in the future. Thank you Lee! Let’s Go Diving!!

If you wanted to know what it feels like to leave planet Earth, you don't have to look up at the stars. There is an entirely different biome beneath the surface of the water all over our planet. I've always been enticed by this adventure as I'm sure many of you are as well. I was extremely privileged to have Lee as my first mentor - breaking into uncharted environments. The knowledge he has is unprecedented and is something to look up to. I learned a hell of a lot and this being my first step into a new world, I'm excited to keep learning. Thank you, Lee!

I contacted Georgian Bay Divers when my phone fell in the lake. I had pictures I hadn't backed up on it, and they couldn't be replaced, as the person is now deceased. Lee responded immediately and came to see me. He searched until he found my phone. I was so grateful, I cried. The customer service I received, was amazing. If I ever need a diver again, I would contact Lee at Georgian Bay Divers.

Lee was excellent! My 15 year old nephew and I completed our classroom and in-pool session almost a year prior with another company and were thrilled to have found Lee to complete our 4 open water dives. He was super patient and loads of fun. We could tell he’s been doing this for ages and knows his stuff, so we felt safe under his guidance. Georgian Bay has surprisingly good visibility and is a perfect place to learn the skills. Lee’s family property was beautiful and he had great equipment - he fit us well for wet suits that kept us warm in the water (super important!). Would highly recommend taking your course with him. Thanks, Lee!

I had no idea what I was getting into when signing up for scuba diving. Lee was a phenomenal teacher, extremely knowledgeable and patient, allowing me to learn at my own pace. I would highly recommend Georgian Bay Divers to anyone looking for training for any of the PADI certifications!
