The Open Water Dive course is highly recommended. The whole team is super nice and takes perfect care of you. I felt welcome from day one. My diving instructor Damian showed me the most important steps of diving with a lot of fun and dedication and the dives with him in the sea were an absolute highlight. I can definitely recommend it to everyone with a clear conscience. Here you are taught diving really well and after the course you feel ready to go on more dives.

The Open Water Diver was great. My instructor Jore knew a lot about diving and the local diving spots. He was also able to explain everything in a very calm way to make it easily understandable. I felt very safe during my first dives. The equipment was perfect. The crew that I met: Jore, Elisa, Jonathan and Marek where always very helpful. I can fully recommend this school for diving beginners.
