Had an awesome day's diving with Lotus. Very professional setup, well run boat and well maintained equipment. Our guide, Ricardo, was fantastic. He dived slowly and pointed out lots of interesting things. He also provided a very thorough briefing. Lunch and breakfast were great and overall I felt really well looked after by the Lotus team. I would highly recommend... More

Very nice service from these guys. First, they arranged pick-up from the hotel, provide breakfast and sea sickness tablets :). Then, they set everything up for the dive, and all you have to do is kit up and enjoy. The ratio of dive-master to divers was nice and small. In between dives, they provide nice meal and fruit... I dived... More
