Scuba is my most favorite activity in life and I owe it all to Charlynn! I got my open water certification through another dive shop before a trip to Hawaii. After that experience I was underwhelmed and intimidated and thought I would probably never continue. On a whim, I checked out Gone Diving and signed up for a refresher class. I gained more in the refresher class than the initial open water certification class; from there I was hooked! Her thorough teaching style gave me the confidence to know that I can trust her with my life and led me to believe that I can gain the knowledge and skill to become a competent scuba diver. Before being welcomed into the Gone Diving family, it was difficult to find opportunities to dive as I didn't know many other people who were scuba certified and being a parent makes it difficult to find the time. Scuba is my "me time" and Charlynn makes it possible by creating opportunities to dive. If it wasn't for the scheduled group dives planed weeks in advance and the ability to show up with my gear and know that I'll be able to be partnered up with a dive buddy, I probably wouldn't have been able to continue. When you first walk into her shop, you know you're at an amazing place that offers top service. It's the cleanest, most organized scuba shop I have ever step foot in. It’s a great place to shop and get expert advice from a very knowledgeable staff. Thanks Charlynn, you are indeed an awesome underwater entertainer!See MoreRead Less"

Walking into Gone Diving is like going over to a friend's house who has all this great dive gear and also just happens to be a superb dive instructor. Like all her students, Charlynn gave me special attention when I was just starting out. I was Open Water Certified when I arrived, but I really learned how to dive from Charlynn and the other terrific divers that frequent Gone Diving. Safety is number one and she teaches you to take nothing for granted and make sure all your gear is maintained and serviced. I took my Advanced Open Water, Deep Diver, Nitrox and Rescue Diver classes from Charlynn. I've had the privilege of diving around Puget Sound and in Canada at some of the most beautiful sites in the world. And I've taken trips to the Bahamas and Belize with groups from Gone Diving. Some of the best times ever! We even dove in an abandoned missile silo. If you want to learn to dive safely, have fun, see incredible wildlife and nature's wonders, make great friends, laugh and visit exotic ports of call, then Gone Diving is the place for you.See MoreRead Less"

I met Charlynn as a freshman in college during my open water certification class. I was immediately struck by how positive of a person she is and how passionate she is about diving and teaching others how to dive. I think it is one of the reasons that I decided to stick with diving. Apart from helping me reach my Dive Master certification, Charlynn showed me how to have an absolute blast scuba diving while still taking it seriously and and staying safe. She has the ability as an instructor that I rarely see to impress upon a student high standards of performance and how important safety is while at the same time being incredibly supportive and showing them that diving is just plain fun. The memories I have of being in her classes and diving with her our some of my best and I am a much better diver because of her. I would highly recommend Charlynn and her dive shop to anyone looking to scuba dive, from beginners to experienced divers.See MoreRead Less"

I have taken 3 courses with Charlynn: Open Water, Advanced Open Water, and Rescue Diver. Charlynn is an animated, enthusiastic, and thorough teacher. I love learning from her, but even more, I love watching her teach new divers. She invites Rescue Divers from her past classes to stage dive accidents for her current Rescue Class... The best experience ever, getting to learn from Charlynn and help be part of the learning experience for new divers. On top of running a successful dive shop and holding classes, Charlynn has created a tight knit scuba group that gets together for bbq's, dives, chartered dives, dive vacations, and camping trips; if you call the shop and want to get into the water with some good divers, she will set you up with competent divers and a fun local dive spot. All of the above is what has kept me coming back to Gone Diving for the past 5 years.See MoreRead Less"

I recently took my Open Water/Dry Suit course with Charlynn and she is amazing! Diving is such a different experience from anything I've ever done and she encouraged me to overcome all challenges I experienced under the water and made me feel so comfortable in the open water. Charlynn is so passionate about diving and her enthusiasm shines through her teaching. She is so thorough in explaining all the skills and made sure my class was well prepared to enter the open water. She is so knowledgeable as is her staff. They will be the first stop for me with any questions or equipment needs I have! She was so entertaining and animated during our open water dives and made sure to show us the best time and always put me at ease when feeling outside of my element. I look forward to group diving and learning more from Charlynn!!See MoreRead Less"

I decided to take up diving before I no longer could physically do the things in my bucket. At the age of 57 I took my first open water course. Charlynn quickly helped me obtain my goals and encouraged me to obtain futher training in the sport of diving. Now three years later i have confidence in my diving and enjoy the sport when ever i have an opportunity both here in the northwest and the many places throughout the world where i travel. My wife claims that no matter where we go on vacation i always find a way to dive. These experiences would never have been possible without the time and training charlynn was willing to give me. I will remain a devoted fan of her shop and her love of diving.

We have known Chuck since she taught our basic open water classes over 6 years now. She taught us to dive safely with confidence and to love the sport. She made sure we understood the fun of the surface interval. We had the pleasure of joining her on many dive adventures in the Puget Sound, in Canadian waters and on several exotic trips to the Caribbean. She is a serious, deliberate, safe instructor, which she balances well with a fun sense of humor and a love of diving.
Because of Chuck we are lifelong divers.

I've known Charlynn for a number of years now as I've been active in diving in this area for quite a while. She has great customer service and Gone DIving is a great shop, and it's always a pleasure working with her. She just recently certified my 10 year old son and took extra time and effort to help his extra needs being a kid and all. Her interaction and personality as a teacher and mentor is first class. Charlynn makes the diving experience fun and interesting and is a great all around person to work with!

if your looking for a high energy and professional shop that is clean and absolutly no pressure, then this is the shop for you. My wife and I came to Charlynn and her crew with little knowledge of snorkling and no knowledge of diving but a sense of adventure. Chuck ( Charlynn) welcomed us in and in no time we where hooked! Our daughter @ 13 became certified and our son is right behind. We have met many people through diving and have had great times with this group of people we now have come to think of as family.

Gone Diving is great! Charlynn has infectious good cheer and enthusiasm for her profession, which makes learning to dive all the more fun. Safety is always paramount, but fun is a close second. She encourages you to stretch your comfort zone, but you're never pushed outside it. With periodic group dives, continuing to dive is made easy; not to mention the fun people you get to meet share diving stories and experiences with! Best in the Northwest!See MoreRead Less"

Charlynn is a fabulous scuba instructor. She can differentiate instruction for all of her students. She takes the extra time to help those who are more challenged such as myself. Her classes are focused, fun and informative. She makes sure you "know your stuff" before you get in the water. Her dives are always safe and well planned. I highly recommend both lessons and dive trips and outings with Charlynn.See MoreRead Less"

I have been certified by Charlynn for Open Water and Advanced and I have to say I have never met a teacher more dedicated to teaching her craft than her! She makes the world of scuba fun and exciting! You will NEVER be bored, you will ALWAYS have fun, and you will NEVER be disappointed! I personally can't wait for my next dive with her!"

I took my open water cert with Chuck and I absolutely loved it. Her and the other dive masters were very helpful, observant, and trustworthy. They created a great learning atmosphere and still made it fun. I will continue my certification with Gone Diving and Chuck and will always recommend them to anyone who wants to dive."
