we love the atmosphere that the place have, spacious, not too busy and not too quiet, good friendly people, excellent service. max divers were 4pax for a dive guide, equipments were good. we dived with Magik which was fantastic, we've always preferred local guides as they are much better in spotting things. Foreigns are good as instructors.
we'll definitely come back and dive again with them.

Thank Lydia A

We stayed in the modern room for 3 days, and did 5 dives. The accommodation is surprisingly pleasant with all the facilities that you would expect from a proper hotel, but only at 600,000 INR per night. There is mini fridge, cable TV, DVD players, tasteless fresh shower water, free wifi in the rooms, free breakfast. At the same time, you can also get free tea / coffee / fresh drinking water all day from the dive shop. Since it is modern room that was only built recently, it is very new inside. The mattress is comfortable, air com is cold, open air shower in a huge bathroom. Everything is clean and well maintained.

The dives were well organized. Even it is just 2 of us, the dive shop still chartered a boat and a dive guide to accompany us. Most of the dive sites are 10 minutes away by boat. We went to shark point, manta point, turtle point, bounty wreck and seahorse place, and saw plenty of sharks, turtles, squids, lion fish, etc. etc. The dive guides are so good that they can even 'smell' the marine creatures from far away! The experience is so laid back and enjoyable. Our tanks, reg and bcd were suited up and carried for us. In fact, the only thing that you need to carry are the weights and the rest are all well taken care of.

I took the 4 day open water diving course. It was intense and took up more time than I anticipated but was well worth it. The first 2 days were in the pool and in the classroom. Only on the 3rd day did we go out but got in 4 dives during the last 2 days. In the ocean, I think we saw everything except whales.

I can't say enough about the competence, courtesy, and sense of humor of the instructors. They were a joy to be around and always vigilant on matters of safety. Everyone in the group felt totally taken care of, very little anxiety as one would expect from novices going underwater for the first time. Aan and Olivia rule!!!!

Richard was an amazing instructor and Ben the owner will chat to anyone and everyone... The vibe is the best on th island of all the dive shops, I tried aquaddiction which was ok but not as fun as the Manta lot.. A great place to kick back..
