I really enjoyed this. It was an experience diving down 37 metres. And meeting a Manta Ray and a variety of other local fish. The sub moved through several ship wrecks and explained how they sank. Good for a one off experience

Hi Yes we pick up right outside the reception of El Trebol several times per day, every day but no Sundays. The journey time would be 45 mins to 1 hour depending on traffic and the number of stops scheduled for your dive.
