Following extensive research online I created a shortlist of 5 dives schools and rented a moped to visit them all, whilst Sunshine...

I did my open water with Chris, our super-instructor. I began the course with some fears and it took me a while to get over them. It's because of Chris' Patience and chill vibe that i eventually finished my open water. Eventually i liked diving so much, i decided to do my advanced in the Same week! I really loved...

I have just completed my Open Water qualification with my 20 year old son. The whole experience was fantastic. The prices were far lower than larger more impersonal schools. The trainers, Mark and Bex, were very professional but fun. There are instructors from all over Europe working here so the feel is relaxed and friendl. The sites were beautiful and...

Me and my sister did the Discover Scuba Diving with Natalie. It was by far my best DSD ever. Beautiful diving site and excellent instructors. It was my sisters first time and she was very nervous, but Natalie made her/us feel very safe - so she managed without any problems. Diving in a small group of two we had all...

He made getting the open water certificate fun and enjoyable. Goulin is really great and patient in explaining and demonstrating all the skills and technical and safety aspects of diving. One of the students spoke German and...

My experiences with Sunshine Divers were nothing short of fantastic. The instructors, Bex, Mark and Sam were really great at explaining and demonstrating all the skills and technical aspects of open water diving, as well as assisting and coaching me in the water. The attention each of them gave to our small group of 3 divers regarding details and the...

Passionate and competent instructors! You learn all about diving in small groups with attention for each individual! I did my advanced open water. We had 1 instructor and there were 2 other people with me in the group (so only 3 of us). They also recommended to take a refreshment of my diving skills in the pool (proove of responsibility...

If you're looking to get your open water diving certification I would highly recommend Sunshine Dive Resort. The staff at the resort are all very friendly and accommodating. The class sizes are usually quite small. When I went I was the only student, so it was like having private lessons. My instructor (Anna) was fantastic. Not only was she very...
