I warmly recommend New Way to anyone looking for a professional but fun environment to dive in. New Way is a smaller-sized school, which is precisely what I was looking for: you get individualised, one-on-one attention from instructors who clearly love what they're doing. I...More

Hey Ashleigh. Tipping is up to you and should reflect the experience /instructor. Thing is, these guys don't make a ton of money and our dive instructors at New Way Diving were excellent and we tipped them well.
