Our Instructor, ANN was just brilliant (and in my case seriously patient). There is a wide range of courses on offer from 1 day sesions for first timers to... More

Our lovely guide Ann showed us turtles during a nice drift dive (even the view is not that good at this time in year). The diving stuff, security environment (e.g. oxygen) and the boat are higher class... More
