Flexible and accommodating attitude

The initiary was very varied with great nature and wreck dives. Though I have seen it before, the Thistlegorm continues to be a great wreck and great fun to dive. Thomas Canyon at Tiran strait was new to me and also great fun.

The crew was very adept at finding good ways to accomodate very different diving experience, education, and expectations among the guests. All the way from children doing snorkelling to dive professionals doing CCR. When they say "we do tec diving" they mean it, unlike certain others.

Une équipe aux petits soins

Nous avons eu la chance de nager avec des dauphins grâce à l'équipage qui nous ont emmenés exprès jusqu'à eux en zodiaque alors que notre plongée était officiellement terminée. Nous avons aussi passé de bons moments à lire et regarder le ciel sur le sundeck.

Recommended for
L'équipage était vraiment adorable. Notre cabine était très confortable. On a pu être très autonomes durant nos plongées.
