Warm welcoming hosts and awesome food. Their apple crumble is to die for and dive sites were marvelous... Too bad we missed the blue whales which came a week after we left.

Aquatica is operated by passionate divers and advocate foodies! The dives were fantastic and lead by team of professional DM and Instructors. Not forgetting the food which was served 3 times a day was tasty and extremely delicious. The experience has surpassed my expectations.

Great dive center. Does not sell as 5 star dive resort but first class service and 6 star food. If it was closer I would visit Aquatica multiple times a year! A recommended visit for an experience of a lifetime.

There are some locations where you can snorkel from the beach. Contact Aquatica direct to find out room costs, there is an email address on their website.
