We had a group of 6 divers, one of whom, though a beginner, had already done 5 open water ocean dives. The rest of us were... More

Professional, thorough and safe centre. All staff are friendly and fun, but they are all also 100% careful and make sure that everything is done properly. I've done Open Water training and fun dives with them and could not have asked for more.
