Ok, I gave this place 3 stars which means I have to justify myself. The day started at 8 am and we were picked up by one of the owners, a nice guy called Alex, very pleasant and fun. From there we had a 20 min drive to the dive centre. We signed all the paperwork and we were put... More

Not being a confident swimmer might not seem a good starting point to learn how to scuba dive. But having tried a few times before and being completely fascinated by the whole concept of breathing and swimming underwater, I was eager to continue my engagement. To that end I booked a half day's discovery dive with Simon Bell's Simply Dive... More

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts Nick. And thank you for allowing us to introduce to the underwater world for the first time. Most divers who are very new to scuba do need some time to adjust to breathing and moving in a liquid environment! So we're glad you appreciated Esther's care and patience. It's also fantastic to hear we've... More
