    Easy pick up, not too far a drive. Great as we were the only 2 with our instructor Ferri (who can I add was amazing) I can’t swim properly but he made me feel at ease. Took me some time to get comfortable and he was at hand to ensure everything was ok with me. Get some great images on the Go Pro. Ferri was brilliant throughout and I can’t thank him enough for everything he did for us.

    I strongly recommend! The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Personally, I couldn't dive harder when the pressure relief failed. However, the guide moderately tried to guide and was always present to check that everything was ok. After a few attempts, I decided to go back to the boat so everyone's diving experiment wasn't wasted. At the same time there were snorkelers too, so I switched to it. Really great to see, great atmosphere, good transport and tasty lunch. I will definitely come next time with them to take a dive trip! We really liked both of them, even though I couldn't dive properly. While diving, it's a good idea to recover plastic debris from the sea, even though there were plenty of them on the sleeve. During that small dive attempt I was already quite collected. - Tiia and Jani

    A fabulous experience!

    Having had a ‘special’ birthday recently I’ve been challenging myself to ‘things I’ve always wanted to do but thought I was too scared to do’. Scuba diving is way up there. I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to go over the side of the boat! My instructor was absolutely amazing! He explained everything clearly and was very supportive. I had a little difficulty the first time down and having got me back to the surface, explained what I had done incorrectly. From then on, there was no looking back. Our first dive was 32 minutes at max depth of 12m. We saw Stingrays, a Whiteteep Reef shark, nudibranch, and so many different types of fish! We moved to a new place and although the sea was choppy for the party of snorkellers, once we dropped below the surface all was quiet and peaceful again in the sea world. Can’t recommend this experience highly enough!
