Very professional dive centre. I did my open water course in deep blue and my mentor was Sebastian Mena, and he did a very good job. He was very good at explaining how everything worked and made me feel very comfortable. And the whole deep blue crew was amazing as well. Good planing, good equipment, good food (vegetarian), and nice... More

I never felt so comfortable taking on the challenge as I did,due to the very professional, organized, relaxed, clean, and with just the right amount of humor at this establishment. Abigale was our instructor! She was absolutely wonderful. She was... More

Professional Diving Center was great! Because of the weather we canceled the dive team, but made sure to move in order to enjoy. We got a charming Guide named Greg who was patient, attentive and very professional. The delivery team was very good and we lunch on the boat also was great. Strongly recommends to do dives there!

We had 6 dives with Deep Blue & really enjoyed the personal experience they provided. We had a very knowledgeable DM (Romeo ?) who helped to arrange new sites for each dive, due to our lack of time and who navigated us to interesting swim-throughs and who could spot octopus from 20meters! He had an outstanding ability to spot wildlife... More
