The friendliest people we have met on the island. Before the dive there was a perfect explanation. The diving itself was the most beautiful experience of our whole trip. The guide even gave my girlfriend and I two shell halves from the bottom of the sea. We would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again to everyone.

We had booked for 2 people. Unfortunately my partner had a panic attack when we were about to start the dive so she went back out and had to cancel. I was still able to enjoy it a little bit. However, I would have thought it fair to give us the pictures for free instead of charging 25 euros for them, as my partner unfortunately didn't get anything from the dive. I found that very unfortunate. Also that no one really took care of my partner as she was just left alone when she went out again.
