Greg and his Ohana really make you feel at ease. Ive always had a challenging time with my ears being so sensitive and the guy's a genius, thanks for such a great experience! I'm looking forward to more with you all. Christyn
Our boys, 11 and 13, got to dive with us for the first time and they had an awesome experience!!! Cassie, Greg and Holly were all very friendly, patient and helpful. I recommend them!
Cassie was excellent! Thank you for a wonderful experience with my family!
Had a great Scuba adventure today with Watersports Adventures! I'm certified but haven't been in the ocean in 7 years. Wayne and Cassie were great guide giving me a refresher and giving my kids an intro to Scuba. Greg and Holly at the office were super helpful getting the dive setup.
I wasn't sure if I was going to write a review on here or not seeing that we did our dive a few weeks ago but I felt I owed it to other divers. We went on a dive with this company under the instruction of a guy named Benjamin. When we met up with him he seemed a little strange but my girlfriend and I thought maybe he was just odd. We went for our dive and he was very in attentive going off on his own and leaving us to ourselves. This was my girlfriends first dive and she was nervous as it was. Our dive was shorter than it was supposed to be and we were a bit disappointed but didn't say anything and continued to be nice. He talked to us about tipping which we thought was rude. To top it off he asked us if we wanted to hang out later and offered us marijuana. We began to understand why he was acting so strange! In any event I decided to post this because I think it's dangerous for this guy to be taking people out on dives under the influence and it was unprofessional of him to try to connect with us afterward. We come to Kauai every year and we were so dissatisfied. If I were his boss I would be drug testing to ensure the quality of people working for him.
Last week, we had an incredible introduction to snorkeling and scuba for my whole family! Our guide Wayne was confident, thoughtful and kind. He had my 66 year old mom hold onto his arm to safely lead her through the slippery ramp to the water. He entertained my 9 year old son in his first snorkeling adventure, with some tricks and small lessons. He warned us all about navigating the rocks and other small hazards. We had two experienced snorkelers and two beginners in our group, and everyone had a great time seeing sea turtles and dozens of species of fish very close up!
Wayne also led me on my first scuba diving experience right after the snorkel, and offered to have me hold onto his arm during the dive. But he eased up when he saw how well I was handling it. He was always close at hand and available, but not interfering with my exploration. He also attended to some more experienced scuba divers who joined for this dive. Perfect!
This robust safety and customer service approach seems to be the legacy of Gregg Weston, owner of Watersports, who has been teaching snorkeling on Kauai for 20+ years. I first met him at a group orientation and group snorkeling intro at the Wyndham Bali Hai Villas Resort, and I was a little put off by his showmanship. But in one-on-one conversation, it became clear that his passion for safety and a fun experience for his customers runs deep. The chant his daughter performed in the native Hawaiian language at the Wyndham orientation was spellbinding! I'm thankful for this wonderful experience and would recommend these guides to anyone, especially people who are trying snorkeling or scuba for the first time. Be sure to check that you have specific directions to your site the day before. The staff at Wayersports Adventures did, of course, text us the directions when we called them en route because we had forgotten the directions we had. Great service! Can't wait to go again some day!
