    First scuba dive for my partner and me. Explanations at the top, my partner was less comfortable but the instructor managed to perfectly manage the situation to calm her stress. For my part, I was guided by Marion, it went very well. So we had a great time in this beautiful world with very nice things to see. A unique experience that I recommend to everyone. We will dive again for sure! Thank you again for this great moment.
