The food was always excellent, with plenty to go around. Jilly and Amr did great briefings, explaining both the history of the... More

My Fiancé was keen to try diving, but very nervous at the same time, but these guys could not have been more helpful and reassuring! He had a fantastic time, and I got to experience my first dive not in cold, dreary UK waters. He now intends to complete his theory in the Uk so we can come back in... More

Despite been qualified for over two years myself and my husband about 18 months we have never dived from a boat, in warmer waters, the sea or abroad. Our diving was booked through our dive club, all we did was agree to pay and turn up. Eloise was our guide for the week and looked after us really well. I... More

I made 6 dives with the diving school and completed my Advanced Padi.

Hello KittyKat66 Thank you for your review and great that you had a positive experience and felt well looked after. We replace our equipment on a regular basis and although I agree some BCD's can look tired due to the environment in which they are used and must stress that all BCD's have an annual documented service from our technician...

Came as a couple already open water qualified and did the advanced deep sea/open water qualification. These guys/girls don't mess around. Safety is paramount and any confidence issues are short lived as the training is second to none. They knew their stuff, no doubt about it and looked after all their divers. We ended up doing 19 dives in two... More
