What People Say About Us

We do our best to make any persons diving experience the best time of there lives look at what some people have said.

  • Marc is an exceptional diver and I love chatting with him about all the different things I can dive. He makes diving in Montana more reasonable with his cut to the point pricing.

  • They're amazing! Truly one of the best places to shop in town. The staff is very knowledgeable and super friendly. I plan on taking an Advanced Open Water class with them this summer and I am stoked!

  • I went down to "The Crater" in Heber City, UT to do some training last year with Marc and the crew and they bent over backwards to make sure we had quality training! Their communication and organization was top notch. I would suggest Family Fun Scuba & Snorkel to anyone!

  • I was hesitant to dive locally considering I get cold REALLY easily! Marc finally wore me down and I went to Yellowtail damn near Fort Smith, MT. As I predicted, I started to get cold and we weren't even close to being finished. To my surprise Marc & Todd had a hooded vest and thicker gloves waiting for me at the surface "just in case". This crew rocks! A+ to FFS&S.

  • I had a BLAST learning to scuba dive with Family Fun Scuba and Snorkel. Marc, the instructor, was VERY accomodating to my busy schedule, and worked with me so I could get certified. I was new to the whole diving experience, but he helped me overcome my nervousness by walking me through the parts I didn't understand. He was funny and very friendly, and was great around small kids, too. He also gave us a lot of insider diving tips, from where to go to how to make our future dives even more rewarding. Through my experience with Marc in the class, I saw him work with students from around the world, and with both adults and small children. We all had different skill levels and comfort levels in the water, but Marc easily adjusted his teaching style to best instruct each individual student. My husband is now getting ready to take a class from him this summer. He, too, has a very busy schedule, but Marc has already found a way to make it possible for my husband to dive. My experience with Marc as my instructor couldn't have been better, and I will be sure to utilize his service (and dive store) again in the future. If you want to learn how to dive, then Marc is your man!
