Our coastering trip was amazing. Very physically challenging and I would say not for under 16yrs (they advertise 12yrs). There really is no option to quite, kids must be very capable. Anyway as an adult it was an incredible way to see the coastline. Our guides were very experienced, we felt completely safe in their hands….oh and did I mention great fun!

Guides were amazing! We had a great time. It was much more physical and difficult than I had expected but well worth the money and time! Jumps range from 3 meters to 10 meters so not for those with fear of heights!

The first dive in my life, preceded by theory, training in the pool, and finally about 30 minutes of diving in a beautiful, calm ocean among fish, starfish and crabs. I recommend

Wonderful experience. Good instructors and fun to do on tr with diving!

My sons enjoyed it very much. Niko was an excellent teacher
