Hi, i was looking for freediving course when i came upon Like Scuba. I joined the course and paid full fee, then came for theory and one pool session. I didn't finish the course then because of time constraint.

But Ronald , my coach and instructor was very persistent and contacted me again and again to get certified.

So i went and get certified for pool freediving and now awaiting to get certified for open water freediving.

During the course, Ronald is very professional, from preparing for theory course up to preparing for dive equipment. He even measured my fin again and again to ensure correct size. He is very patient and full of POSITIVE comments. He went through the syllabus one by one not skipping a thing even warming up. He went through such length for his students, finding the best pool for freediving for his students.

I wrote such a lengthy review because Ronald and Like Scuba is very worthy of it. I am certified PADI scuba advanced diver but i gotta say so far Ronald is the best instructor i' ve ever had in both scuba and freediving field.

Thank you Ronald and Like Scuba
