"Fantastic day diving with Splash.
HK waters have really sprung to life! The first time I went diving in HK I didn't see a single fish, but it's been better and better each year.
Today we had great visibility and saw box fish, porcupine fish, sweet lips, Moray eel, clown fish, nudibranch, jelly fish, too many sea urchins, lion fish, parrot fish, butterfly fish and an octopus!!"

"Thank you very much for a great afternoon. My niece had a blast and really enjoyed the bubblemakers course... Or in her own words: ' this was the best birthday gift ever!'."

"Great company. Darren, the owner of Splash, is great to work with. He will make sure he trains you properly so you are 100% safe in the water when you do dive in future. That is extremely valuable to me and my friends who just completed the PADI open water with Darren. We were considering another instructor before choosing Splash but the other guy was so strange and inflexible with time. Darren does this as his full time job and specializes in this so he is much more flexible with time arrangements and easier to work with. We are really happy we went through with him instead of anyone else ! Thanks Darren"

Firstly, Merry Christmas to you and all the guys at Splash HK.
I would like to say that you guys at Splash HK were absolutely brilliant with our group. Not only did they teach us everything that we needed to know - you also worked around one of our group who had various difficulties during the training.
I've just been on my first dive outside the padi open water course on the great barrier reef and the dive master couldn't believe that i'd only just passed as i was stable and relaxed in the water. I put this solely down to Chris and the team teaching us all the proper and safe techniques and explaining everything clearly and comprehensively. An excellent place to learn even if the water visibility is not as good as other places. A+ - 12/10 for you guys :)"

"Darren and his staff at Splash were wonderful through our IDC, adapting to our busy work schedules to make sure that we could progress and go through the program based on our availabitities.
They have a lot of experience to share to put the training in context, make it fun and teach you how to be a good instructor, not merely to pass the IE (which all of us did !).
I will gladly go on and teach for Darren for as long as I can, because I know that with Splash I will continue learning how to be a better diver and Instructor within a fantastic team of people."

"I recently completed my Instructor Development Course (IDC) with Darren at Splash. The course itself is intense and provides you with a significant insight into the diving industry and the PADI method of teaching. Darren and Don from the Splash team were incredibly helpful in translating the course into a realistic assessment of what life is like as a dive instructor. They provided countless examples of real life situations they had encountered and tips and techniques for teaching skills etc.
Darren was also very flexible regarding the course schedule. On several occasions I had to rearrange sessions due to work commitments and Darren was very accommodating. The facilities at Li Po Chun college are ideal for an IDC with the classroom and pool next to each other which allows lots of time for practicing in-water skills.
I would highly recommend Splash for the IDC and strongly encourage anyone contemplating their instructor qualification to give Darren a call."

"I would like to take the opportunity to thanks both of you for your commitment and follow up on me.
Thanks for believing on me and helped me to do my very best during the IDC
Thanks to Darren who first teach me to dive and to follow the standard since the early begining, encouraged me to continue my diving education and help me throughout the DM and the IDC course."

“Wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks and congratulations.
Thanks - for a very well organized day out and special thank to Joe – who was excellent for my refresher weekend.
Congratulations – I think that your operation is one of the most professionally run that I have encountered – and love the fact that you are doing so much for the environment.
I would certainly recommend you and your team to anyone who wanted to dive or learn to dive in Hong Kong.”
Keith (Hong Kong)
“I had a terrible time with my first lesson in the pool. I kept taking in water, and I was going to quit the course after the first hour. Darren encouraged me to keep trying, and it turned out to be sound advice. I worked through my issues and I now enjoy diving. Thanks, Darren!”
Randall (Hong Kong)
“You made the difference Darren. She couldn't stop talking about your patience and good teaching skills. I think she did better than I in the open water in fact… Thanks! We are so glad that we took the challenge!”
Mike and Doris (Dongguan)
“Thanks for the first excellent day. Claire was just really fantastic. “
Sheldon (Hong Kong)
“Just to say thank you for an excellent weekend diving, Katherine and I both thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to make use of our new qualification soon."

"I just want to let you know that my daughter, as well as me, we have been very happy about the PADI course led by Xenia; she has been indeed great and very helpful!~ Delphine (Hong Kong)
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Professional Instruction"
"FUN! Fun! Fun! Thanks Damon you helped me get over the fear."
"A great course and a terrific Instructor. You really worked well with the kids and balanced being relaxed with being Professional. Excellent!"
Martin (Hong Kong)
"I was a bit nervous at first, especially my first time in the water with Scuba gear. By the end I was calm and confident and it's all Damon's fault."
"We both enjoyed diving with Damon-he was very friendly, Professional and creative."

"Can't thank you enough for making my adventure into the underwater world so fantastic."
