You will be transported to another world, and experience how it feels to breath underwater. You will also discover what it feels like to be completely weightless, as once you have donned your scuba tank and descended to a maximum depth of 10 meters that is precisely how you will feel. No previous experience is needed for this dive adventure to explore the beautiful house reef. You will see sleeping octopus, and be followed by schools of inquisitive fish of a huge variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.

Out of this world as they said its a life time experience.

The company blue explorers went pick us up from the place where we were staying. Once we arrived we were greeted by the staff (divers) then Ron the Diver instructor that took a big role on teaching us step by step how important it was to follow all the safety rules in a fun and relaxed way. We put our suits on and went snorkling with the team they showed us some cool spots to see the corals and fishes, after we took a small break and went back to the sea with the scubba diving equipament. At first i was a bit nervous but Ron not only made us feel safe but made us feel really confident underwater also made me laugh couple times with the sea cucumber and other stuff. Time flew by really fast. At the end of the day they show pictures that they took of you and you can buy them for such a reasonable price it seems nothing. Dont forget they are a group of professionals they risk their life to keep ou safe and have a fantastic time like me and my partner had. Once again thank you all.

Super cool!

We had to travel a bit to do this activity but it was more than worth it! Everyone on the staff was very friendly and explained a lot to us. During the snorkeling and diving we got a safe feeling because all the time was taken for us and everyone was well looked after. We were also taken to the bus stop after diving and snorkeling, which was super friendly. We found the snorkeling and diving super fun to do and have decided to continue with this! Thanks for everything!!

It was the best experience on the island. Both - snorkeling and diving were amazing. Our instructor Cindy was very nice and helpful. We had a very professional training so we could feel safe under the water. Exploring underwater world with Cindy was pretty awesome. I recommend it to everyone even if you have never tried it before.

It was really good experience. The staff is just awesome. Try this with us and directly decide to pass open water diver with blue explorer diving center because there are very friendly and explain us all. Good staff team and i hope have time to come back to dive with them more and more times.

The instructor Richy the best !! Unique experience I recommend it
