DAEDALUS- SIMPLY ASTONISHING

My recent trip with JP Marine was incredible. The highlight was undoubtedly Daedalus, where we had several thrilling encounters with hammerhead sharks and oceanic mantas, as well as sightings of silky and thresher sharks. The crew's attention to detail was extraordinary; they were consistently friendly and polite throughout the week. The dive guides' expertise ensured we had sensational dives every day for six days. I would undoubtedly choose to dive with them again in the future

Hammer head sharks …. The toilets are very bad they kept over flowing and blocking up … and the smell was the worst I’ve ever smelled
