Had another brilliant weeks training/diving with Gary, yet again he organised everything. If you want to do a training course I couldn't recommend the Twin Peaks Dive Centre highly enough.

Excellent venue with very helpful staff in perfect surroundings to do the course. We did a week of diving from the shore and found all the sites visited to be clean and great facilities. The water was crystal clear with great topography.
