Hello! This is much much later than I had planned but I wanted to thank Columbia Scuba, especially Lawrence and his wife for being great! I was going on a diving trip with my boyfriend's family and it was my first time ever going diving, so that meant I needed to get certified on a rather short notice. Being a graduate student I didn't have a really empty schedule to do some of the more scheduled courses.... So after calling around to a few different scuba places and looking at all the websites my boyfriend and I decided I'd do my certification through you all because no matter what time of day we called, or who answered the phone, you all were always super professional and had the answers we needed which gave us the confidence that learning something as complex as scuba diving would be great under you all. To thank Lawrence and his wife though for really shining through for you all they helped me do private lessons, inviting my boyfriend and I into their home to do the pool portion of the lessons and then spending a day out at lake Jocasse, much nearer to where I live than they do to help me get certified in time to go to the Philippines to dive without spending my first 3+ days doing all the certifying there. Either way, I'd love to thank all of you for the great quality of service and everything that I received from you!

If you have every so much as had a tiny thought about learning how to scuba dive but weren't sure where to start, look no further. Columbia Scuba, SC is comprised of a wealth of knowledge and experience! Lawrence and the rest of the staff are just simply GREAT people with a passion for diving and teaching. The shop has all the essentials ranging from beginner to advanced and hands down the best customer service I have experienced. I could not have asked for a better experience while receiving my dive certification! Thank you to a PHENOMENAL team!!

If you ever want to learn to scuba, I highly recomend this place. Lawrence and his staff of professional divers had the patience to work through any difficulties I had personally which allowed me to learn the necessary skills to be a safe diver. Not knowing what equipment I needed, the staff took the time to go over everything so I could make informed choices from their vast selection of equipment and gear. Thank you for a great experience.

Mark Johnston, Columbia
