Very nice dive shop. Located in the center of Buggibia near the coast line. Every dive was well prepared by an excellent and professional dive crew. Especially the historical background of each site was well explained. One of my top 3 dive shops.

A rashie and shorts would be ok for shallow dives but you would need at least a shortie or full 3mm suit. If you'd like to book with us then please email me, we would love to have you join us.
