"I am a PADI Dive Master and I recently had the opportunity to dive with Hamden Scuba in up state NY last weekend while earning my Ice Diver cert. All I can say is WHAT an awesome experience this was! Great people, lots of experience, a true interest for the student's safety and overall a wonderful crowd to work with" - Lisa Abbe, PADI Divemaster
