Had the opportunity to on 2 dives with this crew and it was overall a good experience. We didn´t have the best visibility but still it felt like a fun dive with some bit of exploration on about 12 meters depth. Recommended.

Very professional and helpful instructors. Beautiful dive spots. I had a lovely day! It doesn't matter if you just want to do a discovery dive for the first time, a course or just dive because you are a scuba diver already. They offer it all.
