I've been diving all over the world and this place is definitely great for experienced divers but not beginners, it is one of the most unorganized and not fully accommodating diving excursion I've been on. For starters, on both dives we did, when we got...More

Wrong number of wetsuits, no plans, allowed divers to go up alone, took us too caves with no plan. Very minimal guiding. It felt like we were following a diver on his own excursion not being led by a guide. Mislabeled names and wrong sizes...More

My Sister did her open water qualification with blue wilderness she was nervous about some of the drills etc - they went above and beyond to make her feel comfortable and get her through the course. Absolutely made her holiday!

The snorkelers wear wet suits. They hold onto a float. There is no waiting around for the divers, the snorkeling and diving take place at the same time in the same spot.

They give you a wetsuit on the tour - mine was only short sleeves and legs but definitely ask if a full one is available. I did not feel like I missed out at all with the snorkel experience! Enjoy
