Scott Jackson (the owner) was very flexible and was very good at communicating with me. Despite some last minute changes I was able to get the class and pool work done before my trip to the Philippines.
I love this place- Scott rules (I would literally pay money to hang out with this guy), and Dennis (who has been doing the pool portion) is a great teacher, too.
Tony was the instructor for the both the pool work and the Monterey open water dives. I will have to say that he made me feel very comfortable in the water and he is a great instructor.
