Did a shore dive with Hillbilly, so much to see and such a knowledgeable and friendly team. As a fairly novice diver I was given expert instruction and felt confident and relaxed. Highly recommend even if you normally prefer boat dives, this is worth doing.

A great experience with Feet First Dive. From friendly Dave on the counter to Dive guide Jake, who made my dive an absolute pleasure. Very professional with laughter in between. Thank you Trudie and Hillbilly for providing such a hospitable environment.
