Our guides have great knowledge of remote and unspoiled diving sites. Not only scuba diving but also snorkeling will blow your mind on each occasion. The shaded dive deck has warm water showers, rinse tanks and charging stations for your camera equipment. We run a diving gear rental service including nitrox. Courses are available.
