Had a couple of dives with Orca in August 2017 and I would recommend them.

Equipment is in proper condition and I felt safe and comfortable diving with them.

In autumn 2016 we absolved 10 dives with the Orca Dive Club Candidasa. We found the facilities very clean and well kept, the equipment as well and not old at all. The organisation was perfect, the whole team was very friendly and our dive guide Gusti very professional and a wonderful person. Very nice dive places, even if the amount of garbage under water is horrible.

Pity: other guests that arrived 2 days after us got always nitrox. For us there was none left. We learned on site, that oxygen is difficult to source on the island, but why not in turn us and them?

The billing procedure at check-out was weird: as basis for the calculation they took the EURO prices and converted them at a very inconvenient rate (for us) to the local currency. As a result, the bill was 50 € higher than expected. Luckily, we could clarify the matter with the manager of the dive club, however, this left a somehow strange aftertaste. The team of the dive centre deserves in any case 5 stars.

Overall, we had a great experience doing an intro dive with Orca. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and they made sure we were prepared before we went out to the dive site. The only negative part of the experience was the boating and putting on our equipment. The boat was small and not suitable for diving; it was not operated by the dive company, either. We had to get off the boat and swim in the water (which was quite choppy due to high boat traffic) while putting on our gear. This was not an easy task. The boat driver and dive instructor seemed to have some miscommunication, and at one point the boat started moving and I had to quickly move out of the way of the engine; I did not feel safe and questioned whether I should just get back in the boat and not do the dive. The dive site itself was beautiful with lots of sea life and coral. Overall, it was a good experience, but the boating situation could be improved.
