Everything from pre dive to post dive was well organized and with a smile. Diving the MVF Funguo was great experience. No torches provided...need to have at least 1 torch to see marine life inside the hull. All else went smooth, gear was in decent condition. Thanks to Leonard, Samson the office guys, Swaleh and the boat captain but most... More

The first thing that put a smile on my face was learning that snorkelers do not go out on these boats. It's diving only. This is worth noting if you want to bring snorkelers along—you'll want to go with another operator. But, if you're a serious diver, then this news should be music to your ears. The next thing is...

Nice people. Decent Boats. I used my own gear and am experienced diver. Dived the Funguo wreck and a reef. Wreck is very very good. Covered in large shoals of big fish. Recommended if your in town

Although the location was excellent and the diving itself enabled us to see 3 turtles and an octopus as a highlight, we were disappointed with the level of safety and organisation. Having dived mostly in the Red Sea with excellent dive companies, perhaps we had too high an expectation for Diving the Crab. My main concern was the lack of... More

Great friendly team, equipment is in good order and the diving is just amazing. The only reason why they did not get 5 stars is because my favour dive school in the world is also in the same area. However, they really are a good school. Thank you

My diving coach/instructor (Evans K) was very honest & upfront with me about the level of commitment I needed to... More

I did PADI open water course at this club. As other reviewers say, I was amazed by the professionalism of the staff. I could fully count on them! I went through video lectures, textbooks, homework, quiz and exams as well as pool and ocean dive trainings. As you can see from these facts, the course was well organized and gave... More

We really enjoyed our first dives. After the pool phase they took us on a couple of great trips for our first dives. We felt safe and we had lots of fun. Thanks Lennard, Saleem and all others. The restaurant serves great cappucino and pizza. So from the early morning till the late afternoon you're a happy diver. Even the... More
