Orca was recommended to me by our guesthouse staff. Upon entering the dive shop I was greeted with a snobbish attitude. While I fully understand the inherent risks in scuba diving and have full respect for ensuring you are certified and comfortable the staff were...More

It were several years ago I had my last dive. Orca took me trough a repetation and gave me a dive with only the guide. I felt really safe and they seemed professional . Strongly recommended.

Hey there Telsa! My friend Matt went scuba diving for the first time with our group through Orca so he did not need to be certified to go out with us. If it is your first time, they will probably pair you up with one of the... More
