The experience was very nice. It's just like snorkeling but in the water not at the surface. The instructors were nice and relaxed and polite, especially ours (Freya) wich was amazing and encouraging. I would say it is worthwhile and a must do at least once. You can always go to the surface in seconds so you don't feel any danger, always light, always others, you can always see the bottom. Definitely worth the price.

To start, we were shuttled to and from our villa, which was super convenient! Once we arrived, we were greeted by a smiling and competent staff who made everyone feel right at home. Once settled, we began with an extremely well presented tutorial on the scuba essentials. During the dive, the staffs professionalism really shined. Their attentiveness was outstanding and it was apparent that safety was their number one priority. It was my daughters first dive, and I was relieved to know she was in great hands. To cap it all off, the team was able to provide a great diving experience for everyone by facilitating a true discovery of the world of diving. We saw many interesting structures, fish, and even some squid. This is the perfect team to trigger your "diving bug". Highly recommended!

Booking the one-day beginner's course was very easy and confirmation and contact via email was immediate. As agreed, we were picked up from our hotel on time and received good, but not too lengthy, instruction at Omega Tours on site. After suitable equipment was selected for us, we went to our first dive from a quiet bay. The care outside and in the water was excellent, Maria was always very attentive and infected us with her enthusiasm for diving! An absolutely recommendable experience!
