Absolutely fantastic, a young and adorable team, who take the time, put you in confidence and laugh with you. We had the right to a snack after the dive. Having never dived and speaking very little English. The brief was complicated. But they repeat the security gestures again and again. And being a group of 6 people for 2 instructors. We are really very supervised during the 45 minutes of diving, he does not take his eyes off you and remains attentive to the slightest problem. Very reassuring team, I highly recommend

As someone who gets motion sickness this was a great trip! Smooth sailing on the Escape, easy to walk around the boat. Large inside cabin and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the sun. Hotel pick up was easy and the drive was under 45 minutes.

Une expérience unique à ne pas rater. L'équipe est d'une gentillesse et d'une bienveillance remarquables. Très pédagogues, ils expliquent le temps nécessaire. L'activité est organisée de façon très sécurisée.

It was an amazing experience. The whole team is super friendly and explains everything to you. The diving instructur keeps an eye on you the whole dive. You are in good hands. I recommend it to everybody!
