Totally recommendable. Very attentive both Juan Carlos and Yemi. All very safe, and the immersion very fun. They are always attentive that you are comfortable and feel safe. Without a doubt we will repeat a new dive with them.

Lovely family experience. It seems incredible everything that can be seen doing this activity on the seabed, so shallow and so close to the shore. Super recommended!
