Beautiful experience. The super kind and prepared stuff took us to the dive site and after a briefing of about half an hour on equipment and rules to follow we left for the underwater adventure in a group of 6 people. Water and fruit at the end of the dive made us very happy :)

Absolutely fantastic, a young and adorable team, who take the time, put you in confidence and laugh with you. We had the right to a snack after the dive. Having never dived and speaking very little English. The brief was complicated. But they repeat the security gestures again and again. And being a group of 6 people for 2 instructors. We are really very supervised during the 45 minutes of diving, he does not take his eyes off you and remains attentive to the slightest problem. Very reassuring team, I highly recommend

This was amazing, the staff are incredible (especially Alex our dive instructor) and the dive itself is beautiful. They’re so professional, with the most thorough pre-dive brief and making sure everyone was comfortable, and also super friendly. I would recommend this to absolutely anyone who has an interest in giving scuba diving a go
