My name is Janye and I was new to diving, so I tried the introduction program and went directly on to complete my Open Water Certification. It was such fun and so rewarding. I recommend ITDA to all.

My wife and I are both divers but quite new to it. We loved the upgrade from Open Water to the ITDA Rescue program and specialist programs. My wife & I did marine life, had a great time in Tioman, Malaysia.
