“I did my IDC with Jamie Gladwin at Magic Oceans Dive Resort in February 2018 and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.

Jamie was so patient and friendly. The small size of the group created a fun and relaxed atmosphere in a situation that can be very stressful. Not only did I go into my IE feeling prepared and confident, Jamie offered us lots of practical tips that have been extremely valuable in building my career.

The classroom at Magic Oceans was clean, comfortable and well equipped, they have a beautiful laggon style pool for training and their housereef is absolutely amazing!”
