It was my first time ever diving properly. Sergej, our diving instructor, was super helpful, explained everything clearly and in detail. He also guided our small group of 3 girls very well in the water. Once I got a little panic under water - he was there immediately and had his tricks to calm me down. After that everything went perfectly. We dived about 7.5m and for 40 minutes - which was more than enough for the first time. Also in the area where we dived you could already see a lot, even if the focus was more on the "first feeling for diving". All in all great! Definitely makes you want more.

Magic !

Being French and not understanding English very well I went to this initiation course with a lot of apprehension knowing that it was a first for me but Yoann a very reassuring instructor who is French moreover knew how to put me in confidence and I was able to take full advantage of this experience!

Awesome experience, we have found a new hobby

Really had a good experience with Orka Diving Club! I had a panick attack the first half hour in the water and our guide let me take my time to get used to the gear and being able to breahte under water. You get all the information you need to dive and afterwards you see a lot of the bay at the diving centre. We didn't have a very sunny day so we only had visibility to 6 meters and therefore we didn't go any deeper (also because of the pannick attack I didn't have that much air left so we had to return to the centre). I didn't expect to see this much of the bay and fish. I had a really good experience and am looking forward to doing it again!
