The crew is very professional, made me feel very safe as it was my first dive. Thoroughly enjoyed the reefs they took us to, but take their advice and take the seasickness meds!

If you spend a little more and take the Silver Swift they will take you to the outer reef, once there you should go expecting to see a lot of very colourful fish and amazing coral. There are also schools of large fish that... More
