It’s been a pleasure to have Jenni as the instructor! Even when her English is not the best, she makes it easy to understand! We were a group of 6 people, we got neoprene, masks, water shoes and even photos for free with her go pro. It was so nice weather, we saw a lot of fish and had a great time in the water. Highly recommended experience!

Very good experience, they provide you with all the equipment and guide you during the activity, with a special dedication as if in the case of my friend it is your first time and it is a little difficult at first, we both enjoyed the activity a lot.
