Our German-speaking guide Matthias was super relaxed and totally friendly. We were only two participants and therefore had an intensive and very personal dive. Matthias was empathetic and trustworthy. Questions were answered directly. Equipment was clean and intact. The boat we went out with was also well maintained. We dived about 8m deep and saw an octopus among other things. The meeting point is actually on the opposite side. So go left from the port, not right. There are lockers for valuables and a toilet on site. We would book the course again at any time!
