Absolutely awesome dive, although being chased around by a tyrant fish cutting the dive a little shorter, amazing location and large range of beautiful fish. Am very much looking forwards too coming back for more dives :)

Buongiorno! Volevo sapere se era possibile effettuare delle immersioni anche se si è alla prima esperienza (ovviamente seguendo tutte le istruzioni che ci verrebbero date, oppure seguiti direttamente da esperti) , oppure se è invece necessario avere una sorta di abilitazione. Grazie mille
