I highly recommend it! Unfortunately the wind reigned supreme and the sea was a little rough, but it was still a wonderful experience! We immersed ourselves and what can I say...the guys are great! For the first 3/4 minutes I had a panic attack, but he was able to calm me down, he explained everything to me in detail and I was able to live this wonderful experience...don't do like me...go for it if you feel like it! I regret those 3 minutes wasted whining 🙈 The white island is a wonder of nature.. abundant food, drinks.. everything you need! Highly recommended!

Our tour was through Shams Diving Center and we had the best guide ever! His name is Abdallah. Definitely recommend this tour. The reef was absolutely gorgeous, filled with marine life and colorful corals. Our guide made us feel safe underwater, taking lots of great pictures with our go pro, and showing us some cool spots. Best diving we’ve had so far! Te lunch spot we went to was yummy with beautiful scenic views from on top of a rooftop that was very nicely decorated. We enjoyed a nice tea and some hookah after our dive.

Wow - where do I start? Our guide Safi was absolutely amazing. He made sure that we had a fun and memorable experience throughout! My family and I really loved this excursion - it was great value for money, I can't recommend this enough!! We were looked after and Safi was always at hand to guide us and help us. I suggest you take strong and durable trainers with you when exploring the Canyan. I also suggest you go ahead an book this!!
