As he holds multiple diving certification, do contact him to inquire on the available courses in which you are interested. He is well-versed in English, Chinese, and also Malay. He teaches strictly and demonstrates patiently, making sure one is equipped with all emergency and practical underwater skills, and explains thoroughly with the reading materials. He is able to take care up to 4-6 students, and if a group of 8 would like to take up the course, the duration may be longer than 4 days 3 nights and he will be assisted with another diving instructor. No pre-reading before the course required. Every sessions are done intensively during the 4 days 3 nights and start immediately upon arrival. There will be a total of 5 open water dives at different sites, with 1-2 dives at about 12 metres during the preparatory stage, and another 3-4 at 18 metres depending on the pace, time, and weather. 


Aaron is also a DJ at night so do check him out just beside the beach rocking those music!

If you have further queries, feel free to contact him with the information above. He is very responsive. We truly enjoy building this trust and relationship with the instructor and he always managed to crack some jokes in between. 

The stay was simple and pleasant with Redang Beach Resort with a superior queen-size bedroom which fits 3 in a room. The meals (breakfast, lunch, teatime, dinner) provided were also appetising. 

You could consider visiting Asia Dive Expo in Singapore to look out on other course packages out there to offer, or don't hesitate to just approach Redang Aquatic Adventure or even the instructor himself.
