Amazing experience!!
Jun 2021 • Couples
Did my first ever scuba diving experience last week with Bob and it was such an incredible experience that I had to go and do it a 2nd time a few days later! He goes through everything to make sure that your diving experience is as amazing and enjoyable as possible, I felt totally safe and comfortable for both my dives and will certainly go back again!

Bob was the perfect instructor for my first time diving. I was a little nervous, but he's just so relaxed and funny. We had a great dive at a beautiful reef. Will definitely come back.

Jul 2020 • Friends
Well what can I say .... professional, fun, great value and great people. I was lucky enough to dive with both Maurice and Bob. I completed a PADI open water course with a few friends over 2/3 days.

After completing the basic skills, we were lucky to dive at a few fantastic locations. Including, shipwrecks, great looking fish and corals and even TURTLES 🐢.

Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to start or even progress with diving course. I will be planning to get back out there after COVID to get diving again. 10/10

First time scuba diver!

LOVED IT! My instructor, Maurice, was so patient, funny, and overall just a positive vibe. (Much needed for something so nerve-racking lol) We went over all the basics, practiced, and went diving at a beautiful location. Wouldn’t change a thing! Highly recommend!
