Super informative and the staff are professional

This truly professional establishment answers all of our questions and shows us everything we need to know about basic diving and makes everything safe. I highly recommend ! In addition we can choose the instructor's language (English, French, Spanish) which makes us comfortable and helps us to understand the instructions.

Wish the second dive was included, especially because it was more-less the same location/same type of wildlife...

It was a great experience for us. Tom as a dive guide was great
