And when we swim inside the dark that pulls the light down from above. it softly takes us in and holds us where the edges blur. The world is alive around us and in this freedom we feel at home, and in this home we forget we cannot stay. We'll miss you - see you in a while. Love. - Paisley, Willow and Jessica (Hollywood, USA)
What A Trip! Fantastic introduction to SCUBA - Fish, coral, more fish... One hell of a lot of fun. Very professional thorough guides - highly appreciated. Cheers!
- Aidan and Rachael (New Zealand)
Stu Thanks for the excellent coaching and 4 days of fun! It was a great experience and the underwater world really caught us. We'll definitely go diving again on our next holidays as well! Take care, have fun and never mindthe bollocks ;-)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We had the most fantastic time. A dream of a lifetime finally come true. Aqua Vision made our experience easy and possible, and Chris made it fun and safe.
Thanks for everything, the diving was incredible - a great experience. Cheers!

Chris - It was ever so hard to pull away from those blue eyes to see the big blue down below. Thank you so much for a fabulous intro to the world of Scuba. I felt completely at ease and absolutely loved it - despite my brazen hang over. I love Scuba, keep teaching and sharing your love of the deep blue sea.
- Blessings, Adele Noll (Boulder, Co USA)
Thank you for showing me the world underwater - Loved It even though you were (almost) always late, we made it in time - Thank You - Anik (Denmark)
We are in the process of heading home from our vacation and just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for organizing our Open Water PADI certification course. Uwe was a fantastic instructor. His expertise of the subject matter, his inclusive and attentive teaching style, and his instructional rigor were all essential to our learning the skills and our enjoyment of the course.
This was the first experience with SCUBA diving for both Anick and myself and we had an amazing time. we really felt safe throughout the entire course, we learned so much and we cannot wait to suit up to go diving as soon as possible.
I can only hope that everyone who signs up for diving courses has such an excellent instructor and as much fun as we had! Thanks again for the course, we loved it. - Simon and Anick McDougall (Canada)
Chris, Thanks for the help with the mask... Great experience but don't bother with the taxi next time!!! Many Thanks.
Great, Something new to spend my money on! Cheers
- Liam O'Leary (NZ)
Chris: It has actually been a good experience despite all those smart arse comments... And as I said I would, I'll attempt to draw something in your guest book. Thanks for everything! Oh yes, and I love your PADI pics. Ah-ha-ha!
- Charmaine Tham (Singapore

Returning back to our home countries after spending marvelous 2 weeks in Krabi, we would like to use this chance to say thank you again for the exciting dive trips we had with your organization.

Thanks for giving us our first taste of scuba diving. Probably we made a lot of mistakes at the beginning but thanks to your instructions and examples I'm sure we don't do them again. Now slowly forward to get new experiences.
