    Very nice staff on site. On the way to and from the dive site, we stopped a few times, for example when we saw dolphins. At first we snorkeled a bit, then we went diving. Here the dive guides paid very close attention to each and every one of them. And the photos and videos were very good. I would go diving here again

    A nice trip, even if at the beginning everything seemed a bit mixed up and disorganized. The brief instruction consisted of: "Think about the pressure equalization, we will take care of the rest! If you have a problem, then give your guide the signal to come up." duration. I got my diving license a few years ago, but haven't dived since then. I would have liked a more extensive briefing, but that may be enough for a complete newbie. After that, nothing happened, the group was left alone for 20 minutes without explanation before it started. Together with other participants (only snorkeling and refresher) we were put on 2 boats, then we finally went to the diving point. It was positive that the guides had a lot of patience and made sure that everyone was able to handle the pressure equalization when they went down. Unfortunately we didn't see turtles, but we did see a lot of fish! All in all, highly recommended

    An amazing experience but the masks weren’t great and kept letting in the water. I did mention this a lot but they didn’t offer me another one only tried to adjust the one I was wearing. When it came to scuba diving we were under the water and all the water got in and I was swallowing water (scary experience). I pointed to go up but the guy took ages getting me up as he was trying to calm me down not knowing I was swallowing so much water. As a beginner I would of liked for him to reacted quicker to get me up straight away, I would recommend doing this but use your own mask.
