I just did my advanced open water certificate with Simba (Sibel) from Blue Bay dive shop and I had the most amazing time. Blue Bay is a beautiful dive site (try ‘the wall’), but Simba was super flexible to try other places as well. She was super relaxed, but encouraging, and that makes everything about diving just so much fun. I could freely choose and plan my adventure dives, which turned out to be wonderful and were really different to your usual guided dive. I learned a lot from the course and feel much more confident in planning and navigating my own dives. I would have loved to stay longer to do the next certificate with her, but I guess I will just have to come back to Blue Bay some time in the (hopefully near) future. Thanks again to the Blue Bay team and especially to Simba for being so great!

My son Is almost 11 and it was time for his first open water exploration dive. He did an intro with Sharon and Max. They were absolutely wonderful! They made sure he understood the theory and then took him to a reef in the bay where he saw a sea turtle, hawk fish and lion fish. They were the perfect balance of challenge and re-assurance and he felt like he had walked on the moon afterwards! I highly recommend this dive resort and their instructors!

I never expected to enjoy scuba diving as much as I did. After participating in a fun discover scuba dive, the expertise, professionalism and vibe of the dive shop's crew inspired me to learn more about diving by enrolling in the shop's open water course...and it did not stop there. Koen, my instructor during the open water course, through his experience and encouragement was able to teach the other students and I a solid foundation of diving skills, giving me the confidence to continue to develop as a diver by signing up for the shop's next course, the advanced open water. As part thereof I dove to 30 meters, at night, and upside down continuously being guided by Corné's clear passion for and knowledge of diving. After the advanced open water I participated in a wreck dive to the MV Superior Producer and went on a boat dive, both of which I highly recommend. After getting certified to dive on Nitrox and to 40 meters, I didn't want to stop. So I enrolled in the last course that I could given my time constrains, the rescue course. Shanon's expertise and dedication made the course both fun, challenging, and above all very informative. Overall an indeed overdelivering experience for me. Great stuff. Many thanks to all the staff members including the ones that I haven't mentioned. All the best!

Blue Bay resort is very picturesque and the dive school there was excellent. The dive site is easily accessible and we saw lots of interesting fish including a stone fish; large green moray eels and lion fish. Recommended.

IDC with Dive Division So, it is over and what an experience! I had no idea what to expect when I applied to do my IDC with Dive Division, what excited me was that they had 5 dive locations dotted around the island. I have to say it was a steep learning curve for myself as I had only ever really guided dives with certified divers, but Dive Division’s staff, expertise and knowledge meant I managed to learn so much over a relatively short period of time. Plus, they made it fun and enjoyable at the same time making sure we absorbed as much knowledge over that period. As part of the course, they encourage you to dive as much as possible in your free time to perfect the skills needed for the IE. I never believed it when they said IE stood for Its Easy, but by the time it came around I felt well prepared. My thanks to Mick, Sharon, Pascal, Floris, Bridgette and of course Aulk for all their patience, boundless enthusiasm and encouragement. If you are thinking of doing your IDC with Dive Division stop and just book it with them now- You won’t regret it.
