Very friendly people, that did take the time to explain a lot of things. Gave us liberty while diving to let us learn more as this was our third time diving. Also, they prepared some snacks and drinks at the end for free. I recommend it. Thanks to Andre and Jerry for this amazing moment!

Andrea was really cool. On the way to the diving spot we got to learn a bit about the coast (geologie and history). We were 2 people with no experience. One of us was afraid of diving at the beginning but Andrea helped her a lot and stayed with her as long as she felt she needed him. We recommend at 100% ! It was an awesome experience :)

First time for me so I was a bit nervous but the crew was extremely reassuring and clear on instructions from start to finish. They all were extremely nice and welcoming as well informative with all the history. Definitely a great experience, Definitely recommend trying, and I would do it all over again with the same crew. They were awesome!
