The guides were amazing to make us feel safe and have a great time in the water. The safety talk was delivered clearly to let us all know what was going to happen. The time in the water was excellent; we saw lots of of fish and the seabed is equally interesting. The only potential sticking point that we did not realise until we arrived was that the return transportation did not leave until 14.45 - we had finished swimming by 12.00. This gave us plenty of time to explore Agia Pelagia, but may have meant we missed other activities that afternoon. Overall, a fantastic introduction to scuba diving in a beautiful place!

The team were excellent. Picked up on time at the resort. The experience was great for what we have never done prior to this date. This experience comes with flash drive - which was great to view the beginning to the end. It has inspired us to have the experience again.

10/10! Best experience of my life so far definitely! Alex and George were good guides and made me feel safe all the time. It was a mad experience. Definitely recommend coming here if you’re in Crete and want to scuba dive. They also take pictures and videos if you underwater do you can keep the memories forever!
