Professionally run operation by very friendly and knowledgeable people who are enthusiastic about marine life. I absolutely recommend diving with them and will for sure do so myself when I come back!

I never ever comment on trip advisor... But back to Basics Adventures (Jenny - owner) are the rudest most horrible people I have ever met. Close your doors... do society a favour.More

My training with B2B was absolutely awesome. After finishing my Padi open water with lovely trainer Blue, I did another fun dive and a deep dive. Couldn’t have hoped for a better place to learn diving. Pretty reefs, a pretty place and cool people!
