    This was amazing from start to finish. I was the only one who booked to go that day so I had both instructors to myself. I got a message the night before confirming what time they would collect me from my hotel. This was my first time snorkeling and the instructors were very patient and took everything at the pace I wanted to go. We were in the water around 45-50 minutes and they were really informative, constantly pointing out things to look for and explaining the names of all the sea life we saw.

Absolutely incredible first approach to the world of diving. Truly TOP instructor who does not hesitate to take her time to give explanations and rehearse if necessary. Very welcoming once in the water and reassuring, it goes at our pace. I would not hesitate if I were you, to do it again !!! We laughed a lot and had a great time. (explanations in English but very easy to understand). Magnificent photos surrounded by fish as souvenirs.

Great experience, whether it was the transport from the hotel, the explanation of the safety rules, and the diving itself. I was 100% beginner and Kate the instructor accompanied me very well and guided me throughout the session. I got to see some beautiful things I recommend anyone to try.

Totally recommendable. Very attentive both Juan Carlos and Yemi. All very safe, and the immersion very fun. They are always attentive that you are comfortable and feel safe. Without a doubt we will repeat a new dive with them.

A great experience with attentive, very kind and reassuring supervisors. The diving is done in small groups which allows to have an instructor for two people maximum thus making the experience even more incredible!
