Hence we went for Kata beach dive first day for a bit of a refresher. Joel got us kitted out, dropped... More

The dives themselves were really amazing – location, time, right dive locations for conditions. Joel, the divemaster, was awesome. He was super helpful and knows the area like the back of his hand. I’d heard that diving in... More
