I took the open water course at Lutwala and loved it so much that I stayed to continue my advanced open water course! Judith was my instructor and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher! She's extremely patient, VERY safe, and has an awesome sense of humor. I took the courses with my friend and we had Judith all... More

Perfect place to take your open water PADI course. Great Place, great instructor, great people. Wished we could have stayed for the Advanced course.

Two dives here, staff/dive master were very nice but kit was old and v shoddy, had to carry all own equipment to and from boat, and wash it. And no snacks provided in between dives. Also more expensive than other dive shops on the island, unfortunately you don't get more for your money!

Our instructor was extremely professional through the theory, pool training & then the dive itself. Ramon was incredibly patient & supportive, particularly with my wife, who... More

We went there as a group of friends and weren't disappointed! Our instructor was very professional and made sure his pupils learn the basics of diving, to ensure our security. We saw water turtles, a puffer fish - in a word: breathtaking.

Me, my daughter and the daughter of my friend, we did the discovery diving - first time scuba diving for all of us. Our instructor Ramon was very patient, with a strong sense of humor but pretty strict about safety both during theory and pool exercises and also in the sea. Especially patiency with the 14 years old adolescents was... More

Steven and all the crew at Lutwala were brilliant. Did my Open Water here and couldn't haver asked for me. Wonderful place to dive with turtles and all sorts of other sea life. Steven was a great, patient and calm instructor who made the whole thing fun and easy whilst also entirely professional. Superb. Recommend without any hesitation.
