We got Rai as an instructor and were not disappointed not only his English was great but he was also super patient with us (first time divers). They are overall extremely professional, friendly and very safety conscious - so definitely recommend it .

I did my PADI Open Water course here. During this intensive course the staff was very helpfull, friendly and had a lot of patience. After the course, they even took me to the Thresher Sharks. I would certainly recommend this location.
