We had booked for 2 people. Unfortunately my partner had a panic attack when we were about to start the dive so she went back out and had to cancel. I was still able to enjoy it a little bit. However, I would have thought it fair to give us the pictures for free instead of charging 25 euros for them, as my partner unfortunately didn't get anything from the dive. I found that very unfortunate. Also that no one really took care of my partner as she was just left alone when she went out again.

Wir haben deutsch gebucht, hatten allerdings eine Französin, die mit uns Englisch sprach. Ob irgendjemand in der Tauchschule deutsch konnte, kann ich nicht beurteilen, da wir direkt "German or english" angeboten haben, Englisch ist es dann geworden. Anne war sehr lieb und geduldig, hat einen sehr entspannten Vibe abgegeben und uns sehr langsam herangeführt und mir, die vor vielen Jahren schon einen Tauchschein gemacht hat, freie Hand gelassen. Das Tauchen passiert nicht vom Boot aus sondern man läuft vom Strand ins Wasser, was ich persönlich eher anstrengend fand. Für ängstliche Erst-Taucher ist dies scheinbar sehr angenehm. Alle Mitarbeiter in der Tauschschule waren super lieb, Stress ist null zu spüren. Dementsprechend sollte man statt 1½ Stunden ungefähr einen halben Tag einplanen (von Heraklion aus)
