She was patient and if it hadn't been for her, my GF would have given up. They were totally cool about letting us stay an extra day or two without charging us extra,... More

My experience with Paradise Divers was fantastic! The prices couldn't be beat and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. I stayed for about 10 days and in that time I received high quality training in dive technique as well as safety procedures. I always felt prepared and confident when diving with my instructor Pisa and was given every opportunity... More
