It was a small group, so each had plenty of personal attention. Even in the afternoon the dives were well planned and most of the time we were alone or with 1-2 other boats in the diving place - never crowded.

Hey Ashleigh. Tipping is up to you and should reflect the experience /instructor. Thing is, these guys don't make a ton of money and our dive instructors at New Way Diving were excellent and we tipped them well.
