The scuba safari was very enjoyable and offered nice chilled fun dives for already certified divers - or the opportunity to do your course with the beach as your classroom! I went on the 3 day/2 night safari which included 7 dives - two dives each day plus a night dive (for those with relevant certification). Food was good, hammocks... More

Me and a friend did the open water course and the advanced course, 3 days in the safari. During these 6 days ee had an amazing experience, and there is honestly nothing we can complain about. The team was great, and Enrique was THE BEST instructor we could ask for! Patient, calm and professional. Thank you calipso!

I am an advanced certified diver, and have done about 150 plus tanks. I must say it was not the best dive I have ever done, however, this team here looks after you very well and for the price you pay for 2 dives, all equipments inclusive, ok snacks in between the dives, I think this is a great value....
