It was an amazing experience. Although I was really scared, Mr Felician (Our dive master) really motivated me and helped me overcome my fear and finish the dive. His technical expertise helped in making the experience smooth and memorable.

Went diving early in the season, not perfect visibility but sursprisingly lots to see so close to built-up areas (particularly enjoyed seeing cuttlefish). Skillful divemaster on the dive, as well as speedboat operator. Recommended.
