Nice experience. Good organization and explanation. When diving you are always in the immediate vicinity of the instructor, which gives a super safe feeling. Thanks to Henrique. This was an ideal way to get acquainted with diving! Fantastic environment where you can discover the beautiful underwater world without any experience. Top! Definitely recommend. Best regards to the whole team Christian
