This was an incredible experience. The whole team is so friendly. I had such a patient instructor. I began to almost have a panic attack in the water and the way he calmed me down was absolutely amazing. I was really nervous at the beginning and wanted to pull out, he encouraged me not to and guided me each step of the way, before I realized I was at the bottom of the ocean with the sea creatures. I conquered my fears and had an amazing experience. I am so glad I did this.

It was great! It was a small boat, few people on it. You have to take off your shoes, the waves are very strong and you may be seasick and get wet. Because of the wind, we couldn't see any whales, but the dolphins and the landscape were worth it!

Excellent experience. The tour was organized well with guide and diver shows. The world underwater becomes feasible without learning how to dive. Recommend to everyone who is curious about or enjoys seeing sea creatures.

Vicky was phenomenal in making me calm and ready to dive. It was my first time and I’m ready to do it again. Definitely recommend

It was a lovely experience!! Its a must to try this
