The pickup from right near our hotel was so convenient, the equipment seemed top notch, and our guide, Alejandro, made our experience incredible! The staff were all very kind and knowledgeable about diving. Made us feel super comfortable. Highly recommend!

Deutscher Guide war vorhanden. Mathias hat alles genau und ausführlich erklärt, sodass man mit seiner Hilfe den Tauchgang dann zeitnah in die Praxis umsetzen konnte. Insgesamt tolles Team, es wurde sich sehr gut gekümmert und die Stimmung war gut. Es ging bei uns mehr um das tauchen an sich, was auch sehr eindrucksvoll war. Leider haben wir sehr wenig Fische gesehen. Dafür haben wir Unterwasser eins zwei Tricks gemacht und sind durch eine kleine Höhle geschwommen. Alles in allem war es trotzdem das tollste Erlebnis und wir würden es auf jedenfall weiter empfehlen. Danke dafür ans Team von Zoea.

Super organisation, prise en charge et retour à l'hôtel aux heures précisées. Les explications sont claires et les moniteurs font tout pour que l'on se sente en confiance (moniteur dans la langue demandée). La vue sous marine n'était pas ce que j'attendais, pas beaucoup de poissons et le fond en algues uniquement, eau un peu trouble. Découverte de nouvelles sensations en respirant sous l'eau, pas évident au début, le matériel est lourd et encombrant hors de l'eau et donc peu faire peur mais sinon superbe expérience.
