It was pleasant.

Lunch and dinner dishes were tasty. Wished breakfast was more than just eggs and toast. Also, would have preferred more snacks in between meals other than cookies and bananas. Diving takes much energy and calories. I found myself often hungry in between meals.

Not the best experinence

No introduktion of crew No introduktion of guests No evaluation of dives First 8 dives was not interesting. So many other interesting divesites around. I was left by boat in surface water with SMB even I was highly visible and very close by boat. Situation was not dealt with in any way. I asked for evalution on what happened. They said they would find out and come back to me. They never did. We were a big group. Often on too small dive sites so it got very crowded at times. Quality of foods was not good. Coffee is Nescafe, bread is toastbread and cake was supermarket cake - not freshbaked. Local dishes with fish were good. Not a good armotphere among the guests.
