My wife and I were excited to learn to dive and we stopped by the dive school (we were also staying at Vila Ombak) as soon as we arrived. Jeanne was first to welcome us and she did a fantastic job of explaining our options and helping us. She didn't push us to make a decision about whether or not we wanted certification and instead let us go with the Discover Scuba and decide as we went along (it was out honeymoon so we were reluctant to spend time on homework). That afternoon, we were in the pool with Sam in a small group (4 of us) learning the basic skills. Sam was patient, supportive and a great teacher.
The next morning we were off for the reef. Michael, our guide, was phenomenal. The diving was great. Right off the bat, we saw a sea snake, lion fish, clown anemones, sea turtles, eels and much of the other life on the reef. We were hooked and Vila Ombak was ready to support. We decided to just keep on with three more dives (afternoons and mornings).
On our last dive, they even accommodated or request for an underwater video of my wife and I. We were exceptionally pleased with both the video quality and price!
All together, we felt like we made new friends and had a wonderful time. We felt very safe with the equipment, boats and terrific guides. Everyone was patient and laid back. We certainly hope we can visit again!!!
