I spent 3 days diving with Simply Diving, completing my Wreck and Deep Diver specialties along with a couple of fun dives. Before booking, I emailed extensively with the shop owner, Simon, about scheduling, dive options, and logistics. He was very accommodating and worked to create a custom 3-day dive plan. The dive sites were great - La Herradura, Marbella,... More

As an old diver (first dive 1976 latest dive this week) I appreciate being treated with the reverence my advanced years are due. This was a shore dive and which ever way you tackle it involves lugging a lot of heavy equipment about on land before you gain the benefit of that wonderful feeling of weightlessness once in the water....
