Just done 10 days diving with buddies, some were with George, a top bloke, professional but chilled and happy man! A couple of dives with dani, a great divemaster soon to be instructor. Most dives were with Elka, clearly an experienced instructor, also professional and safety conscious but laid back enough to let me enjoy my holiday! Martin clearly knows... More

Everything was well organised and the diving was brilliant. The surface intervals were also an adventure including avoiding a thunderstorm and holding a bird of prey! I will definitely be... More

I did two shakedown dives, four deep dives and four wreck dives and attained the PADI specialties. The pickups were exactly on time, the driving was safe and the shop was absolutely spotless and in great order. The... More
