My 9 year old son was affraid to dive although he swims like a fish. My husband had a leaking mask so he hardly enjoyed the activity. I was the only one to dive actually. There was no turtles, just some small fishes. But the overall experience was terrific. I was scared to jump off the boat and really scared to go under water. But once you try, you can't believe you did it.

at the beginning, after completing the form, everyone gathers and the diving equipment is explained in English / French or Spanish. Then everyone gets their wetsuit and fins and they go out to sea by boat. After about 10-15 minutes you reach the place to dive, first you are given a snorkel mask so that everyone can explore the area. In the meantime Andrea and Ale (super friendly guys) have prepared the diving equipment. Little by little everyone can dive with Ale or Andrea. Both take MUCH consideration for you and wait when you sink so that the pressure on the ears is not too strong. Now you have about 25-30 minutes to explore the underwater world with your guide (with couples you can even dive with the guide for 2). Photos and videos are also taken in between, which can be purchased for € 20 at the end. It was a great experience for us.

Highly Recommended!

My partner and I have never dived before, so we spontaneously decided to take this taster course. Everything was very well organized and controlled. The instruction was routine and our diving instructor was also available for jokes. She went through everything with us several times and thereby conveyed an uncanny security and calm. At no time did I feel uncomfortable (and I'm a scaredy boy). We found fish and a very playful turtle under water. I would do it again anytime! For me personally one of the most beautiful experiences ever on the island. Thanks Nati and thanks to the team for the great pictures !!!
