Went scuba diving for the first time and I felt really safe. The first hour consists of filling out paperwork and watching videos and trying on equipment. They gave us a water bottle as well which was really nice! I would say I’m more on the anxious side but I dived with Wata who was really nice. When I asked if we could go up we went up with no issues. If you feel too anxious to continue then they will let you sit in the car for the remainder of the trip while the rest go scuba diving. I recommend you try it though! It was really nice to see everything. I had a few issues but as long as you communicate you can resolve anything. We saw a few octopi and loads of fish which was amazing! I would probably do another discovery dive to get more comfortable with it but Wata and the rest of the team were really accommodating.

A very nice and successful trip, which we would like to repeat. We saw whales and dolphins. There was also something to eat.

didn't see any turtles but so many fish, was incredible and guide diver was amazing at making you feel comfortable! 10/10

It was quite interesting, we have seen some fishes, hope the next time to see turtles too! Recommend to all!

One of the best experiences ever! 10/10 would recommend!
