End of season dive with terrible visibility, scant marine life and some current BUT the dive shop was great. High quality rentals, good prices and very professionally run. In season this would definitely be a good place to learn to dive, continue your dive education...More

Really great dive centre. Friendly, safe and thoughtful people. We had 7 dives, each at a different site. Saw masses of fish: trigger fish, moorish idol, peacock fish, box fish, puffer fish, hawksbill turtle, angel fish, moray eel, ray, and lots more. Highly recommend.

Diving with the dive instructor Taminda, was one of the best diving experience I have had. He was always helpful, positivoe and knowledgeable of the area. Seeing a whale shark on the first dive was just a bonus to an already excellent experience.
