The company blue explorers went pick us up from the place where we were staying. Once we arrived we were greeted by the staff (divers) then Ron the Diver instructor that took a big role on teaching us step by step how important it was to follow all the safety rules in a fun and relaxed way. We put our suits on and went snorkling with the team they showed us some cool spots to see the corals and fishes, after we took a small break and went back to the sea with the scubba diving equipament. At first i was a bit nervous but Ron not only made us feel safe but made us feel really confident underwater also made me laugh couple times with the sea cucumber and other stuff. Time flew by really fast. At the end of the day they show pictures that they took of you and you can buy them for such a reasonable price it seems nothing. Dont forget they are a group of professionals they risk their life to keep ou safe and have a fantastic time like me and my partner had. Once again thank you all.
We choose this company as we travelled as a family ( 2 young children ) and my mother ( 63 years old), and this was an activity that we could all enjoy as a family, as the youngest and eldest of our group didn't participate in the actual activity, but waited for us on the beach. We all enjoyed it, I think it was a nice taster session for my sister and brother-in-law, who never snorkelled before. The actual snorkelling was a bout 45 minutes long the rest of the time was about a short orientation , explaining what to expect how to use the snorkelling gear and getting actually geared up. We saw lots of colourful fish. we felt safe and secure all the time, our guide regularly checked up on us and pointed out the different fish. I booked it on Dutch language to benefit my niece, so the English version of the explanation was rather short, so make sure to book the right language - the guides all spoke good English.
It was really good experience. The staff is just awesome. Try this with us and directly decide to pass open water diver with blue explorer diving center because there are very friendly and explain us all. Good staff team and i hope have time to come back to dive with them more and more times.
Very good program for novices. Our group included kids, aged 9 and 12, and the initiation program was excellent, safe and thorough. We spent the rest of the day snorkelling in the bay, saw cuttlefish and octopus as well as many fish. We recommend the Blue Water group at Abades Bay.
Abades is nice place for snorkeling as there are 3 coral reefs near the coast and a lot of live underwater.
