The dive site was quite nice but the overall experience got influenced in a negative way by the incompetence of the dive operator and his guide.. - While setting up my gear the guide blamed me in not too nice words for a mistake regarding emission of air from the tank/regulator. Only later when he tried to fix it he... More

English below. Gostei muito da operadora. Todos foram simpáticos e atenciosos, Roger, Marcela, Jainer e Johann. Já sou certificada e mesmo assim eles prestavam bastante atenção em todos, sempre verificado se tudo estava ok e dando auxílio quando necessário. Conheci pessoas que fizeram o curso com eles e gostaram! Pesquisei preços de mergulho e o deles era o melhor. O... More

These were my first two dives outside of my PADI OW course and they both went perfectly! The crew were at my hostel right on time at 830AM when they said they would be and we went to the shop where they sorted out our equipment for the day. It seemed a little chaotic and disorganised in the shop but... More

Guys were very punctual and preparation for the dive was without haste. Some of them could speak english so it was easy for me because I do not know Spanish.
