It was my first time trying out scuba diving and I took the Discover course which included the standard lecture and shallow water dive. I had my apprehensions and anxiety at first because I know I'm weak with handling pressure changes in my ears.
One of our instructors was Rodelio Baldovia who is the general manager of Go Diving Studio. The first thing I noticed about him was his kind and warm demeanor. These characteristics extend to the helper diver (forgot his name) as well.
During the initial descent I got so disoriented and anxious due to the pressure changes. I signaled that I wanted to go up but all my anxiety vanished when Rodelio came close in front of me, touched my shoulders and fixed my goggles. Of course applying the deep breathing technique which was thought really helped. And then the rest of the diving experience was amazing.
I can't say anything bad the shop for now. I don't have a way of comparing them with other diving shops especially on the equipment used. What I would like to point out in this review is that there are tens of diving shops around Boracay but I don't know if there are as many instructors whom you can trust and warm up with.
What matters to me is that as a newbie I was handled well during the dive and that I was able to control my anxiety because of them.
