Met all the crew at the location and they got us fitted into our suits and wet shoes with no issues, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We then all hopped into car to amadores beach where we then got dressed and headed to sea, the girl taking us explained everything for us very well and let us get accustomed to the snorkel in the sea without making us feel rushed. She then took us out for just under an hour around the bay where we spotted lots of fish, sea urchins and even an octopus! Was absolutely beautiful and would highly recommend it. Breathing in the snorkel does take some getting used to but all you need is five minutes to figure out how to breath properly and realise you’ll not drown under the water if you’re sensible and not panicking! Would absolutely do it again and would urge everyone to give it a go. You’re in safe, friendly, knowledgeable hands with the crew and I couldn’t fault a single thing.

Tour guide was excellent and friendly Whole trip was enjoyable to Maspalmas dunes , and view from mountains Highlight of the day was Mogan so pretty there from the buildings to the lovely beach where you could swim which I did Also nice restaurants and shops there for gifts However stop at Arguineguin market was not very good and others thought so to so think should be left out and other stop included instead or longer stay at Mogan in future

The staff were super friendly and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. The diving was very exciting. We even had the opportunity to borrow a Go Pro (for €25 with 8GB) to record our trip. We took this chance and got great results. They even gave us a free ride to our hotel which was close to the beach where we were diving. I can warmly recommend. :)

Great first time snorkelling was really enjoyable and the instructor Erin made it really easy and put us at ease

The girls there are really nice and helpful. Snorkeling is really awesome
