They ensured we performed the safety procedures before diving and were very attentive during the dives. The staff on the boats and counter were also very friendly and informative. The... More

My 3 sons 16, 14 and 13 had never snorkelled before. We had a great day out snorkelling around Gaya Island. The highlight was our brilliant guide Gary who put my slightly apprehensive sons at ease. He had a great knowledge of the area and marine life and even found time to share a little of his philosophy with us... More

well organized. It's a safe and eco-friendly trip. The introduction of the boat is professional and the gears are well prepared in advance. Our guide Rebecca was very helpful. We snorkeled in the afternoon at a seduced place with great corals and saw 3 squids!!! I would like to recommend to all the friends.
