A trip to remember

The cabins are cleaned after you return from your first dive and delicious food ready to be served after every dive. The dive master was excellent spotter with the macro creatures. All dives are physically checked for currents before guests jump in water Safety was utmost concern.

All the fun of an adventure holiday without the hassles

We had a wonderful manta ray dive and were also able to see a plethora of sea life we had never seen before. The five master was a true "master" guiding us through ever changing underwater conditions .
