This is only dive center in area of Raley and Tonsai beach offering an amazing experience for beginners. Instructors have really a lot of patience, and are willing to learn you new skills which you didn't learn in your courses and are part of the other courses (especially Dean and Fabio). Groups are really small so you can feel safe.... More

My girlfriend went with the french dive instructor, as far as I remember one of the owners. In this group was another girl who did her first dive that day.... More

The visibility was terrible but that is the environment and not the fault of the dive center. We went out two days and had Charlotte as our Dive Instructor; I have done over a 100... More

When I came to the Dive Center Charlotte and Steve welcomed us. They were very welcoming and nice and answered all of our questions. When I asked about the diving options they were very honest and said they are not sure about visibility because of the weather. I decided to dive anyway since I love the sense of diving. We... More

We wanted to do an OWD course on our vacation. We were very happy to meet Charlotte and Steve. They were very good instructors and made us feel relaxed and confident. My wife was very stressed after the first dive and wanted to stop, so Steve talked with here and held her hand throughout the second dive. The atmosphere on... More

Lady at shop gave us a lot of information and also made sure our expectations were not to big (because of bad weather it could be that the visual was not good). The instructor (Charlotte) was great and told us everything we needed to know before diving. The First dive was great, we saw a lot (including a clown Fish).... More
