I very much enjoyed their Basic scuba diving course. Charles is an incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, observant and helpful instructor. I felt safe and comfortable going in the open water with him and I am confident in my learned skills. I trust Charles as an instructor and as a person. I am planning to take Advanced and Master Diving courses with him. Furthermore, Jeanett and Charles are very friendly, funny and patient people and a pleasure to be with. I am very grateful and happy to have met such awesome people. Margarita K.

The owners Charles and Jeanett are incredibly experienced, helpful and friendly. They truly love what they do and make you feel so safe, like family, that I have never and will never dive with anyone else-ever. Their store/classes offer anything you could need and all their trips are a blast-with great people!! Highly recommend!!

I would say G.R.E.A.T Scuba for this shop. Charles is a great diving instructor and I get to learn from him more about diving every time when i get through something new in this sport. Charles, Jeanette and also I would not forget this great diver in this shop Mario, are people where they inspire you and teach you about safety, care for the environment and being respectful in this sport. Being surrounded from this people, makes me be more confident in the water and well fit for this sport.

When I first went into BAD Scuba I was greated warmly and all my questions were answered. I wasnt presured into any sales which made me feel great. I decided to do the classes with Charles and his girlfriend Jeanette and it was the best thing I ever did. They are wonderful in teaching you the correct techniques and they make sure you understand everything. Charles is patient in explaining and is always helpful. Jeanette is just as great and both of them are out to make YOU have a memoriable experience. Not just there to sell you products. Their store is well stocked and if you need something they will order it for you …no problem…They plan great trips and I hpoe to continue diving with them for the next 10 or more years..So Charles –Jeanette be prepared to see a lot of me. Thanks for all your training and the many more trips.

Great sales team with knowledge and friendly atmosphere! The owner creates an atmosphere of not only a place to service equipment, book trips and shop for all your scuba needs, but you meet other divers and make friends. It is rare to find small friendly shops any more so do not miss this gem in Brooklyn.

Charles, the owner, taught me to dive in 2000. He was a wonderful instructor and a great and fun trip leader. He taught us to respect the ocean and the sport. He gave me lots if encouragement and nurtured my love of the sport. I’m now a Master diver with over 400 dives. I buy all my equipment from Charles. He has great choices and gives good advice. I still have my original computer, reg, and BCD. He services my equipment every year. Since moving to Gerritsen, it’s a little harder to get there, but worth the trip. I love to hang out and shoot the breeze with him and Jeanett and meet some if his other customers. See you soon! Time for my equipment’s yearly visit.

I would like to start off by saying that Charles and Jeanette are great people and that they are sharing what they love. I have had the opportunity to take a couple of SCUBA training sessions here and there, and take it from a U.S. Marine: B.A.D. SCUBA will train you toward becoming a safe (or safer) diver. It has been my experience that some other places just want to sell you their gear – whether you need it or not – even before you have had the chance to see if SCUBA is really for you.
Charles and Jeanette went out of their way to be certain that my girlfriend and I got the proper training and the right gear. They are very experienced divers and a great deal of knowledge can be gained from even a short visit to their shop. I’m looking forward to advancing my skills with them and their team.

There are not many Scuba stores around that are family run and concentrate only on Scuba. One certainly feels a sense of welcoming from Charles and Jeanett when entering. They are always friendly and approachable.
