My son Arthur (15) and I enrolled in the Padi Open Water diving course with Brian at Warrnambool Diving and Firearms in July of 2015. Brian was both professional and friendly in his approach to Arthur and I, and we both felt very comfortable with his teaching during the course. We have thoroughly enjoyed undertaking diving together and are both thankful that we have done this with Warrnambool Diving and Firearms. Since completing our PADI course Brian has  taken us on numerous dives at special sites such as Ewan Ponds in S.A, and HMAS Canberra off Barwon Heads. I look forward to continueing the friendship that we have forged.  Brian is always happy to assist with knowledge, help out with equipment sales, service and air fills, and share a tale.

- Kind regards, Jon Watson
