The instructors were awesome: friendly and encouraging. Greeting to Damian, who had such great energy. After filling out some forms, the instructions were taught in prerecorded videos. Tip: Bring a banana, you can feed the fish under the water. The dive itself was done directly from the beach, you walk into the water and then start diving up to 8 meters. The underwater time is around 30 mins. You can see trumpet fishes and octopuses. I am very respectful in regard to water, but when I was down, everything was so peaceful, playful, and clean. The fishes are really looking at you and are not fearful at all. I enjoyed this experience so much, I will learn to dive in Zanzibar next year :)

UNBEATABLE!! The treatment of 10, we were my partner and I with two children of 11 and 15 years. Very attentive at all times. Material, cleaning, snacks… we can't say anything bad… well, except for the onion in the potato omelette. That being said, it should be a must-do! It is not the largest ship that offers this service, but this allows them to offer better attention and care. We wish them the best, and if we return to the island, the first thing we will do is book another outing with them.

Exceptional trip, fantastic hosts, very knowledgeable and personable. Absolutely no hidden extras, snorkelling equipment provided and a lovely tapas lunch with soft drinks all included. Great value money and a trip that has created many wonderful family memories.

Very well organised. Amazing experience. Would loved to have been there for longer. Definitely recommend this submarine tour.

Fantastisk tur uden for mange mennesker ombord. Meget afslappende og yderst god service! Bedste tur på øen ☀️
