We did just one morning, 2 dives with them to a site called Baru. They were very pontual, attentive, professional and friendly. It was my wife first dive and she felt absolutely safe all the time.

We spent few days around in Torre Pacheco and we visited Cartagena, which is very nice and authentic compared to Murcia ... if you have to choose please take a look this town ... it will be a short and good walk-around !
