“Diving is a great experience! I love how divers are like a big family all around the world. You really get a new perspective of the ocean. Islanders Dive Center was extremely helpful in everything from dive certification to the support in future dives. I definitely recommend diving to everyone out there!”
-Alyssa McNeley (age 13)
“I’m a certified diver now! The pool dive was awesome. Diver John helped me learn everything I needed to know. He is my buddy.”
-Michael McNeley (age 11)
“As a mother, my first concern is the safety of my children. The dive masters at Islanders Dive Center were very attentive to my children. They guided and explained each skill to my child’s level. I feel confident in my children’s ability to dive based on the education and skills they learned at Islanders Dive Center.”
-Dana McNeley (proud mom of two divers)
“I found John to be one of the most conscientious and knowledgeable instructors I had met. John adheres closely to PADI teaching standards. John will work with students for as long as it takes to get them comfortable in the water.”
-Jim Rhea (PADI Divemaster)
“I really like the store and the staff is really friendly and knowledgeable about the gear you sell and diving. You are a great instructor, I had you for my open water dives and you taught my advanced open water course, you are very knowledgeable. The dive trips are fun and exciting to go on. You are willing to work with people on anything they need for diving.”
-Jack (Franklin, Ky)
John Sackett has genuine relationships with his customers. His honesty, customer service and flexibility are awesome attributes which new divers appreciate. I was out of the country and John was able to arrange a birthday card/open-water class gift certificate to be delivered to my girlfriend. We are both looking forward to many great dives with islanders
Scuba John is a top notch instructor. I was so afraid of not being able to do the class, but he really encourages you to give you the confidence you need. Could not want anymore than what John and Islanders has to offer. I trust Scuba John and Islanders enough that my son will be taking his open water when he turns 10, I have full confidence in their ability to keep him safe. Islander staff is also up front and honest about the merchandise they sell, you ask about something, you get an upfront answer, not a sales pitch.
Islanders is a top notch dive store. they stand behind what they teach and sell. I started my diving adventure with islanders and will alway go there to advance my love for the underwater world . Scuba john is one of the best instructor i have ever meet. He treats each student like they are family and will do anything to ensure the safety of what he teaches. Now lets get wet

I have so many good things to say about Islanders Dive Center that I hardly know where to begin. John is simply the BEST instructor we could have had. His shop is small but he stands behind everything he sells. He knows diving inside and out. Your safety is his first concern and your satisfaction follows close behind. Thank you John we are so fortunate to have such an experienced and dedicated dive shop here in Bowling Green.
Islanders is Great! Everyone is really nice. It is the best dive shop in bowling green. I just love it!
In the world of diving, you come across alot of shops and alot of instructors, and alot of these places and people can put you at risk by providing shotty equipment and even worse training. We are so fortunate to have an establishment like Islanders and an instructor like John in Bowling Green. Simply put, you WILL NOT find someone as… dedicated to proper training, safety, and providing the best equipment on the market, as you will with Islanders and their staff. As a divemaster with 16yrs under my BC, I fully and whole heartedly recommend Islanders to anyone looking to begin diving, advance your training, or purchase gear. Now go blow some bubbles!
Islanders is a awesome dive center, the people seem really great! awesome, straight forward and affordable fun! anyone who enjoys the water and likes to travel should check this place out
