Because there was only one participant, I received individual guidance. I had asked for Dutch instruction but this was not possible. The course is taught in excellent English. Good professional diving school. I was able to make my first dive in a calm and relaxed way. Price/quality ratio is very good,

Waren allein mit dem Tauchlehrer, also quasi Privatunterricht. Wir fühlten uns ständig wohl, es wurde zuerst alles erklärt, dann gab es erste Übungen im Wasser und schließlich tauchten wir. Unser Tauchlehrer Bohdan war sehr professionell und hat sich um uns in bestem Englisch die Zeit über gekümmert. Wir würden es jedem weiterempfehlen!
