  • Mark is a one of a kind diving instructor and person. A real shoot-from-the-hip character, we made the right decision to go with Mark instead of Rainbow Diving. As a first-ever diving student, I couldn't ask for more! He really cares about your experience, and will make sure you go to the best area with the best conditions possible, depending on the day. His passion for sharing his knowledge is obvious, and he keeps a fun joking atmosphere while making sure you know what you're doing. He won't just take your money and throw you in the water. He knows how to gently show you cool life forms you'll see on the ocean floor without disturbing the wildlife, helping you get a lot more out of the experience. We wish we had time to stay for his 3-day class! Truly one of the best days of my life! PS - his puppy is a little wild at first but becomes very sweet halfway through the way when he calms down. You'll forgive him
  • As first time divers and patrons of Marks Dive shop, this was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. We were fortunate to have landed upon Mark for a totally personalized, experience, unlike the competitors in Nha Trang. He’s in a league of his own! Mark won’t just throw you in the water, he’s diligent in teaching proper technique and this is essential when no Vietnam diving companies have legal liability of their customers and accidents are high/unreported with mass scuba companies. While absolutely hilarious, he’s very serious about his craft and sharing it with others. We agree that this experience can not be topped in Vietnam and we have been deeply inspired to complete our certification when we arrive home. Thanks Mark!
  • Mark is the best instructor I have ever met. You cannot go wrong do your diving with him. Absolutely brilliant!
  • I've been diving since 1981, and Mark Scott taught me a few new things that I can't live without. Thank you thank you thank you. Thanks for the great work. Awesome!
  • Meet Mark Scott. He has ~35 years experience and he has the height to show for it! All jokes aside... It goes without saying that his experience shows moments after meeting him. He's very passionate about properly training people to dive while allowing them enough freedom to apply those lessons in the water. He watches you closely at all times. Follow one rule: Don't Be Stupid and you'll be fine. His pricing was great and it was BETTER than the more commercialized companies that claim an amazing experience. Their TRY-DIVE basically means they puppet you. Swimming with you while they hold your pack and moving you up and down as you float aimlessly through the ocean. I was a FIRST TIME DIVER and was so glad for Mark to teach me and them allow me to do it on my own. A much better experience! The focus is diving, no tourist trapping, and you learn it every step of the way. You're booking an experienced professional and you're gonna get the FULL Experience. Make this your first and last stop.
