Olaf runs a very reliable dive shop with safety a priority. The diving is just minutes away by boat with some great corals and a good wreck dive - all under 20m.

Owners were very rude to us on trip, very demanding and we felt like we were told off by both of them, despite being amateur snorkelers and unsure of equipment and routines. Local guides were very hospitable and showed us the wonderful clownfish and coral.More

This trip was one of our highlights! We saw eight turtles and beautiful coral. It was really good to have the guides with us. We went to three different areas. So much better than swimming with turtles in an enclosure.
