What people are saying about Protaras, Cyprus

Amazing dive, the instructors were determined to make the dive as enjoyable and safe as possible for us. They are a group of very knowledgeable divers with a good sense of humour. They assured we felt safe with diving before taking us deeper to see some statues and a lot of colourful fish. They also took pictures so we could remember this amazing experience. A big thanks to the diving shop!

A very nice and well thought out tour. The three tastings all have their own charm and make the day very varied. Anna guided us through the day in a very entertaining and courteous manner. The stop in the village of Omodos rounded off the day. The food was varied and incredibly delicious. Thank you for a wonderful day.

We had a great experience with Pete. Very enjoyable and great value for money. All the staff were extremely friendly. We got pictures and videos taken off us underwater (at extra cost) but definitely worth it.

The guidance was understandable and clear. The training progressed calmly. The instructor took care of us students constantly during the dive. The equipment was good. Cheerful and competent staff.

Very good experience. Very professional and very cheerful. It is a very good way to start diving. And sure.
