I booked an instruction morning and 2 shallow dives. The dive instructor Fransesco was great. He was patient , gave clear instructions and was also nice company during the day. But the most important: it was safe and confident! It was a great experience!!

We had a one hour introduction into diving. Great equipment and even greater professional instructor. I’m a bit of phobic, but felt so sure with the help of the instructor. ❤️
