We invite you to please review the testimonials provided by our current and previous students here.
In her 10 years as a scuba instructor, Liz has certified hundreds of divers to dive. As she encourages her students to do, it is important to Liz that she always continues to learn. She is constantly seeking further education and expanding her knowledge of the sport of diving and improving her skills as an instructor. 2 years ago, Liz became involved with the Global Underwater Explorers (“GUE”) training agency. She challenged herself to take a step back and earn an instructor rating with the agency known to exceed the industry’s most rigorous qualification standards.
Students who sign up for training with LTD will have the benefit of learning from an instructor who is an experienced and active scuba diver. Liz has experience diving to depths in excess of 330’ and is certified on two different types of Closed Circuit Rebreathers. She has dove along the east and west coasts of Canada and the United States. On average, she logs between 300-400 dives per year. Liz strives to pass this experience on to her students so new and experienced divers can benefit from the experience she has accumulated over more than 3,000 dives.
Although Liz is a passionate technical diver and loves to explore deep shipwrecks; the most rewarding experience for Liz is watching a student light up when they go underwater for the first time. Liz’s goal as an instructor is to provide students, new and experienced, with first class training to safely and confidently explore the underwater world and share her passion for scuba diving. Diving is supposed to be simple and stress free and Liz wants to give this to her students right from the very beginning of their first scuba diving experience.
