Reef Safari have several sites, and we attended the Natadola Beach site in the Intercontinental Hotel. We had done the preliminary on-line course and had had a diving medical. We did the introductory dive first, to ensure that diving was for us (in our late 50's). This went well, so we signed up for the 3-4 day open water course.
Dylan Burger took us for the introductory dive, and so he was assigned to us for the certification course. This young South African (21) is about to take over the management of this Natadola branch. This will augur well for this dive team. He was knowledgable, keen, polite, safe, thorough and professional.
Over the next few days we had a day of theory, a further 4 dives and several deep pool sessions (the intercontinental has dedicated a 3metre dive pool). Reef Safari provided all equipment, and this was all of great quality. The dive boat teams were friendly and supportive. The written test and qualifying dives were quite rigorous. We came out feeling confident that we had learnt the basic essentials to be a safe diver, and look forward to building on this with more dives in the near future.
We highly recommend this group and this site if you want a safe, professional experience.
