It was amazing to scuba dive in such an amazing environment so quickly. It was definitely worth the price and I would really do it again. Perhaps the instructor could be just a little bit better in giving his students a little bit of freedom in the water. But overall: such a great experience and great service for a reasonable price!

The guide was super nice and explained a lot to us beginners. We dived at an incredibly beautiful dive site and really got a lot to see for our money. On the positive side, the diving instructor realized on the day of the dive that the risk of a weather change was too high and we could still catch up on this flexibly the next day. Always happy.

My mother and I were picked up before our stay, the way there was quite long, we still had to drive almost 30 minutes. When we got there, the first thing we had to do was fill out a form to confirm that we have no illnesses or anything else. Then everything was explained to us, super friendly and helpful. In the water everything was explained to us again and we also did exercises so that we would be prepared if something happened. On the whole, I can only recommend this activity, everything was well organized and the friendliness was great! I found my stay underwater to be very brief. (just under 45min) I recommend it for pure beginners anyway, you have to have done it once!
