I have now returned to the UK rested and all the better for having met you, Morgan and your crew at RQD. Looking back at my eight dives with you guys, I only now fully begin to appreciate just how professional and yet simple you made the whole diving experience for me. I would highly recommend your services to any one thinking of diving in Playa Del Carmen, and take great pride in being able to say I have dived with you both. Your experience in the water is without question and quickly self evident, but the care you take of your customers on land, and the preparation prior to the dive in understanding them as people, is the real difference that makes all the difference!! My wife was also very impressed with you as individual and she is a great judge of character, how she ended up with me I will never know!
I would dearly love to dive with RQD again, until then take care.

PADI Open Water Diver Course Participants (July 2008)
After a few days since returning back to normal life in Monterrey,as I look back at the process that both Eric and I went through together, I would like to thank you, on behalf of my family, for your guidance, patience, caring, firmness, and confidence-development, and for your tutelage and support as we advanced in our training for open-water diver certification, as a son and mom joint venture.
As director of a school I recognize a good teacher and a good system when I see them. And Steve you're tops! You dealt very successfully with two divergent generations: a teenager and an over-50 mom, meeting very different needs.Your reassuring words towards me, and your firmness with my son, ably led both of us through different channels to, slowly but surely, achieve the requirements for certification at the same time...a triumph that we all celebrated!
The PADI System is a great teaching/learning system too! It allows you to understand the theory and put into practice the skills required, for different levels of diving certification desired.
With the support of Morgan, the service extends beyond what is expected. His always upbeat personality immediately captivated all of us, including my husband Alfredo, who stayed at the beach while cheering us on, making us all feel at ease and helping us along the way, as we embarked on the adventure of achieving certification.
Many, many thanks...we learned much more than just diving...which in itself was a feat! We grew as persons as we played out a new-life experience, learning about ourselves, our minds, spirits and bodies, as we began to interact with, appreciate and enjoy, life in the ocean underneath.
Knowing that Playa del Carmen is only one flight away, that it has access to the 2nd largest coral reefs in the world, and that Steve and Morgan are there to guide us, definitely are important draws for us to come back and continue our learning experiences now, as certified divers, in Playa sometime in the future.
Thank you both for very memorable life-moments.

After having had a bad experience while attempting to learn scuba diving two years ago I was a bit hesitant to try it again. Lucky for me I met Steve my very first night in Playa Del Carmen and we struck up a conversation. I told him about my previous "freak out" and he talked me into giving it another go with him as my instructor. I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing experience it was. Right from the start Steve made me feel 100% comfortable and at ease with everything he was teaching me, he has a very calming effect and makes you feel very safe and secure. Steve is a wonderful instructor, he is very thorough, very patient and makes sure you are ok every step of the way. I would never hesitate to go diving with Steve again if the opportunity ever arose, he is the best.

Steve! The man who took me to the other world!
I always thought that scuba diving must be a great experience. And when I was in Mexico I thought it was time to give it a try...
Discover Scuba Divin at Reef Quest Divers Mexico gave me the possibility to learn and go for your first dive on the same day.
I have to say that it went different than I thought that it would be, because the moment that I'd put my head under water for the first time I panicked! Steve calmed me down and waited untill I was ready to try again. After a few times it worked and I can only say that this was because Steve was really professional and patient.
After the try-out we went for our first dive and after that for the second! WOW! This was one of the best things that I've ever done in my life......
After my experience at Reef Quest Divers Mexico I'm hooked on scuba diving! I am sure that lots of dives will follow!
And if I will ever be in Mexico again, I am sure that I will visit Reef Quest Divers!

We have been really lucky to meet Steve at Reef Quest Divers. We had been shopping for a few days and couldn't find someone we truly trust and we believe finding the right shop to dive with is important. Trust is key in diving. As experienced divers, we were asking a lot of questions and Steve was the only one answering them with candor.
We booked a 3 days dive package with RQD and were pleased with each dive master we were booked with and with the level of care they had toward us. We felt we dove with real pros who not only cared about your money but also for the conservation of the reef and the underwater life.
We will never forget that great experience and we have recommended Reef Quest Divers to friends already. We couldn't have had a better experience. Thanks to you Steve and your crew.

From a Scuba Steve Student who loves him: (August 2007)
As one who embraces the ocean and all it has to offer, I am a chicken shit scuba diver. However, Scuba Steve and all of his crew including Cappy and Scuba Nate and even Scuba Lou did all they could to accommodate me. I love the ocean and love fish and love the idea of being one with it all. Apparently though, with the scuba tank, the weight belt, the fins, and the sheer terror of sinking, I had my very first panic attack. Scuba Steve had taken every single measure, and then some, to prep us in scuba safety. Let me tell you that I was only on my skills part of the test. Scuba Steve, whom I trust with my life, tried all he could to sooth my freakish nerves. He was so very patient and calm and his eyes were so soothing. At 6 feet under water, when I felt like the world was caving in and I was for sure dying, I looked at Scuba Steve's face and mask, and he was so calming that my heart was able to beat normal for one second. When I realized in my heart of hearts that I was not cut out for scuba diving, Scuba Steve was so understanding. He floated me right to the top and gracefully helped me to the boat. Though I didn't succeed with scuba on my first try, I have decided that I want to try again and there is no one else I would ever trust to take me down.

All I came to Mexico to do was bask in the sun and maybe go drinking on a catamaran.....however, with fate or whatever you want to call it, our group met Steve :)
