    +\- 45 min under water, +\- 5 meter deep. Adrianna was very sweet and patient. And you don’t have to know how to swim to scuba dive. And you will be picked up and dropped off at the hotel Ps: put on your bikini beforehand. Over the scuba diving itself; i enjoyed it very much! Thankyou! <3

    The activity was very well organized. I haven’t had an experience neither with scuba diving nor with snorkeling, which is why I guess I was completely out of balance in the water, but thanks to my instructor Mari at the end I was able to swim through the reef and see some fish. Overall it was a really amazing experience.

    Had a really amazing time. The instructor was very focused in ensuring that the dive was done properly and that I'll get to enjoy it as well. Everything went well from the pick-up to my hotel, to the registration and the actual dive itself. Will consider booking with them again for a proper certification course next time.
