Black Tie Scuba at Bonaire

"As the Youth Activities Director for the Pinewood Country Club, I organized a 6 week youth program for our country club members children and grandchildren. Chuck Hoffner and Black Tie Scuba provided 3 sessions of snorkeling and intro to scuba. We had 56 kids under his direction, where the participants learned basic water safety, snorkeling and had a chance to experience the wonderful under water world of scuba.

Chuck Hoffner was always punctual, well organized and very knowledgeable, professional and the kids all loved him. The families of Pinewood Country Club are busy planning their 2012 summer around Chuck's scuba camp.

I have the highest regards for Chuck Hoffner and Black Tie Scuba."

"Chuck Hofner has offered in depth scuba and snorkeling classes to our members and guests at the Flagstaff Athletic Club for several years. Chuck has dedicated many hours of his own time to work with our summer camp, providing the children with the information and necessary skills for snorkeling, canoeing and kayaking. Without Chuck's support these activities would not be available to these children, who otherwise may never have the opportunity to experience them on their own. Chuck is extremely personable and can always be depended on year after year to deliver classes that are flexible, fun, and most importantly safe for children and adults alike!"

"A big thank you to Chuck and crew for providing an amazing experience for our kids at Scuba Rangers Camp. All three, ages 8, 9, and 11, could not stop raving about being able to breathe underwater! Every day they would come home and tell us all about the skills they learned, the fun they had, and the sea creatures they want to look for when they are able to dive in the ocean. We are thrilled they are excited about being able to dive with us as we enjoy it so much. We appreciate all you did to help create that excitement in them. We can't wait to have them work toward their certification with you in the very near future!"
