It was a great experience! The team was very nice, and consideration was also given to more anxious participants. A guide came into the water at both stops, you snorkeled as a group, so you always felt safe. There were no explanations about flora/fauna, which we didn't find bad, it was so great. Water and crackers were served. We were the only ones there 20 minutes before the start, we started half an hour after the official start. You can't arrive there with your German punctuality. All in all we would recommend it and do it again.

The dive was enchantingly beautiful. As a beginner you only have to paddle with your feet and you will be guided by the dive guide. This allows you to fully immerse yourself in the beautiful underwater world. It was teeming with fish. The round trip was a bit bumpy as it was very windy. Absolute recommendation.

We had a wonderful time with Elizabeth and her colleague. Really enjoyed the trip and got to spend plenty of time with our underwater friends! Highly recommended.

Very beautiful areas where you can see fish, starfish etc. Very very nice staff! We even felt that we were with friends!

Great captain! Great experience. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. One of the highlights of our trip
