Hello! Thank you for your lovely review, much appreciated! We have now moved locations just down the road, so unfortunately no onsite restaurant anymore, but there are places nearby, so that makes up for it :-) We hope to see you again sometime!

(日本語は後程)I enjoyed my dives with Taprobane for 4 days. Guides are fluent in English and really friendly. Though I had 12 years blank from previous dives, they gently trained me well. My son also enjoyed his DSD! こちらに数日お世話になりました。片言の日本語が分かるオーナー、ガイドは英語が堪能です。12年ぶりのダイビングで緊張しましたが楽しめました。息子も体験ダイブに満足の様子。ホエールウォッチングも行ったのですが残念ながら見れず(゚◇゚) 季節の移り目だからか透明度は今ひとつでした。意外と流れもあったりで少し疲れちゃいました。
