Connor is an amazing instructor. He went above and beyond to make this experience memorable for us. This was our fourth time diving (first time in Lanzarote) but he was the best instructor we have ever had. He gave us a lot of additional instruction that made us feel very secure and confident in the water. We enjoyed every single minute we spent in the water with his caring guidance and assistance. Also, Lanzarote is a great place to dive as the sea is full of marvellous colourful fish. The only regret you could get is to not do it!
Was apprenhensive as at 74, I was ticking off a bucket list item but was very nervous. However right from the outset the instructors Connor and Jessica were very clear with their instructions and very reassuring throughout. It was an amazing experience made all the better for having a lot of one on one attention. Can't praise them highly enough. Plus covid 19 precautions all in place. The diving area of Playa Chica is a haven for sealife, like being inside an aquarium!
The first dives were off the beach near the dive shop (primarily because I did not dive for a while). We saw more marine life than I expected which was nice (many various fish including a ray, clams). There were also a few interesting rock formations like arches and small caves. Vesko, the guide, was excellent. Very patient, thorough, and helpful. The logistics were great. Pickup, equipment, safety, etc. Everything was also well sanitized (COVID-19 days).
Everything was great. First and foremost, the dives (note: we did tweak the original plan a bit as I am certified). They were both shore dives but we saw lots of colorful fish, octopuses, sea horses, large fish, and more. Then Connor the guide. Professional, helpful, kind. Finally, the organization was top notch, and all the equipment (which was high quality) was waiting for me when I arrived. Highly recommended.
The Open Water Diver was great. My instructor Jore knew a lot about diving and the local diving spots. He was also able to explain everything in a very calm way to make it easily understandable. I felt very safe during my first dives. The equipment was perfect. The crew that I met: Jore, Elisa, Jonathan and Marek where always very helpful. I can fully recommend this school for diving beginners.
