Had a great 3 days with the Team down in Hahei. they were able to accommodate me at very short notice on their PADI open water course. Could not have asked for a better place to dive. We were made to feel welcome and safe with Oscar, Josh, Etienne and Wendy. Plenty of amazing dives only a short trip from the beach. An excellent place to learn We were real lucky with conditions, 20m visibility, loads of fish; including crays, rays, eels and kingies coming in for a feed on the shoals. Great value for money, I'll definitely be back and would highly recommend for scuba/padi courses as well as snorkeling

Just spent 3 days with the team at CCD doing our Open Water Cert. Oscar was a great instructor who made us feel very safe and also like it was just 3 buddies out for a dive. Skipper, Josh was a good laugh and Wendy is a great host and always kept us up to date with potential weather and changes. We were lucky enough to see Crayfish, Rays, eels, snapper and little squid. The business feels very much like a small family run business and we love to be able to support those smaller, more passionate companies. We are now certified and can't wait to get out and do some more diving with CCD again!

What a great day out! It was our second time diving with this dive shop and both times were equally as good! An experienced dive shop with skilled dive guides. The entire process was smooth. A quick boat ride out and you get to the most pristine dive sites in Hahei! We saw a lot of fish, stingrays and a couple of moray eels. Highly recommend!

We had 2 great days out snorkelling. All gear was provided and the staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We saw so many fish and sting rays. The Snapper at Gemstone Bay were a highlight. There were a lot and they seemed very interested in our group coming up really close to have a look at us. Just one thing for me the boat rides from and back to the beach were a bit too speedy with the boat banging on the water pretty hard - a more leisurely trip each way would have made the day better for me😊

Very friendly and profesional staff, a credit to the owners and sraff. Will be back with grandson and son next free weekend. Looking in future to do advanced.
