My daughter set out to get her PADI certificate. Our Instructor, Latief, was amazing. He was professional and took time to create a relaxed environment. While we had some wind, the dives were amazing. Turtles and Rays a plenty. No Whale-sharks this time!

We spent one week with this diving center. Unfortunately we have to highlight a low professionalism of the whole staff. We had to face some critical situations since the staff wasn't able to manage them. I suggest a consistent improvement to avoid any further problem.

Well organised diving operation. House reef sometimes visited by mantas, nearby sites OK, just not as good as you get by a live aboard. Worth signing up for day safari and slightly further away sites for Stunning fish life.

If you are a good swimmer you’re sorted The water can be quite choppy by the Italian restaurant where the reef is so can be quite difficult for a weak swimmer-wear a vest if anything
