Had a fab day diving on the beginners course. Knowledgeable instructors who were patient and friendly. Beautiful grounds to relax in whilst waiting for other groups to finish, which really made the experience special. Would definitely recommend.

Instructor expained all rules very well and clear and was very kind. Had a first stop in pool, to get used to diving - then tried the sea. Didn't have enough cash for underwater picture, so the owner gave photos for free!
