The diving Guide was great. He did a very good briefing in front of the dive and had always an eye for the divers in the group. Spotting was excellent. The equipment was in good shape and you could get an extra tank for a second dive (for a charge). The diving spot was accessible over some lava rocks - entry was okay and exit was a bit challenging. All in all a good dive with lots of fish and with some luck sea turtles. There are some dolphins in the area, but they are too far from the diving spot - you could hear them though.
