It was one of the most unforgettable once in a lifetime experience I had & at the same time my most thrilling birthday as I celebrated my 31st under the sea. It was tough especially if it is your first time but the staffs were all so accomodating & so kind to everyone that is why they will help you conquer the fear & worries from within. You should maintain a complete presence of mind while under the sea & during the entire activity for it may cause harm or death.

It was a wonderfull experience. Crystal clear water gorgeous coral reef and beautiful marine life. The dive instructor was very friendly and kind and always smiling they even helped be get back back my camera from the sea floor which accidentally fell while i took a jump from the boat. Overall five star experience for beginner like me. If possible I hope to get back next year aswell.

This was such an amazing experience for me and my partner (both first time scuba divers). Once we arrived at the snorkel/scuba diving site and began, there were so many beautiful things to see in the ocean. We enjoyed the scuba diving so much that we couldn't pass up purchasing a second dive. The instructors were very kind and helpful.

The tour was more than I expected. I was very pleasantly surprised, and the guide took extra care to make sure I was safe the entire time. I really appreciated it.

No problem installing eSim. Haven’t had a problem accessing data. Daily 1 GB sufficient given that I also have access to WiFi at the conference I attended
