We did two dives with the IDS. The gear were put together already at the office, which was much better than on a bouncing boat. The staff helped carrying the paggage onto the boat. The briefing was also done at the office in peacefull atmosphere and wery clearly on a flapboard. Because the dive sites are quite near, at the office was the best place to explain the sites. All the time the staff was very polite and helpfull and the diving groups were nice and small. DM often controlled the group during the dive that everybody was ok. They also showed us a lot of fish and other creatures. Our DM was Amil and we were very satisfied of him. He is very good and professional diver and calm, always on a good mood. He took us also snorkling on the next day to the waters in front of the office. Because there are corals that musn't be damaged as well as very shallow spots along the reef, his quidance was very precious. We saw the biggest turtle ever there and swam with it a long time. It was majestic creature. We thank Amil a lot of quiding us there.
