Met all the crew at the location and they got us fitted into our suits and wet shoes with no issues, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We then all hopped into car to amadores beach where we then got dressed and headed to sea, the girl taking us explained everything for us very well and let us get accustomed to the snorkel in the sea without making us feel rushed. She then took us out for just under an hour around the bay where we spotted lots of fish, sea urchins and even an octopus! Was absolutely beautiful and would highly recommend it. Breathing in the snorkel does take some getting used to but all you need is five minutes to figure out how to breath properly and realise you’ll not drown under the water if you’re sensible and not panicking! Would absolutely do it again and would urge everyone to give it a go. You’re in safe, friendly, knowledgeable hands with the crew and I couldn’t fault a single thing.

The staff were super friendly and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. The diving was very exciting. We even had the opportunity to borrow a Go Pro (for €25 with 8GB) to record our trip. We took this chance and got great results. They even gave us a free ride to our hotel which was close to the beach where we were diving. I can warmly recommend. :)

With the equipment, snorkeling becomes a real adventure. You slip into wetsuits and are driven to the sea, given fins and diving goggles, as well as a briefing. However, mostly in English and quickly spoken. Otherwise you can see fish and the water landscape, but you imagine it to be a bit more crass with coral reefs and colorful fish, which you have seen but not in this form. I would still do it again and can recommend it. I would only make the price €10 cheaper
