Took our son's there for a beginner session, picked up from Rethymno and driven over the island, awesome journey!
Instructor's really friendly and helpful, 1 to 1 tuition, culminating in a 10 metre dive for 45 minutes.
Both boy's really enjoyed it, and as the non-divers, we had a nice day too.
Would definitely recommend, the area they use is isolated, but the underwater world is worth it.
If your thinking about giving diving a go, this team do an excellent job.
