This was the most amazing experience! If you want to go diving but are nervous this is the place to go. From the moment we walked in the door we felt overwhelming kindness. I was scared at first but Alex and crew made me feel so safe. Would highly recommend!

The highlight of my holiday!! As a first time diver, I was excited but nervous however Orfeas (our instructor for the dive) made me feel extremely safe & was a wonderful and very informative guide. Would thoroughly recommend this dive company, very professional, very knowledgeable & such nice people. This was a fantastic experience for both myself & my partner, if your looking for something extraordinary then this is a must do!!
