From the time we booked I was very impressed with the time from making the booking to receiving all of our tickets and information.

The dive was amazing and would like to thank you for making our holiday a memorable experience.

The instructors on the intro dive were fantastic. They showed care in making sure each diver was comfortable and made diving the beautiful reef an unforgettable experience.



For the first time in my 76 years I had someone to show me how to snorkel. My thanks go to crew member Eddy (originally from Ireland) who gave clear instructions on how to use the equipment, and who pointed out the various fish, corals etc. to the group as we swam over the reef. He was particularly kind and very helpful which was greatly appreciated.

the crue was very helpful and friendly. special thanks to Sue )
the only thing was, with smorkelling only we were feeling lost untill we arrived to the reef. we thought we missed all guidelines, but they were just at a very late stage.
reef locations were great and colorfull.
