The diving tour was perfect. Me and my two kids 13 and 14, all first time divers, enjoyed it a lot. We got an instruction on how to use the equipment and went under wanter to marvel the sea life. On the way to the diving spot we also had an interesting presentation about the formation of the surrounding area by volcanic eruptions.

Was a very relaxed and pleasant group. Only me and my friend went diving, each with a guide who can help you very well under water. The others went snorkeling. The half hour in the water felt a lot longer and was enough for the first time. Was a great experience.

This experience was amazing! We were diving for the first time and we had a great introduction into all necessary equipment and safety. We saw a lot of fish and the spot was beautiful. The instructor was very kind, did a great job, and we felt save and comfortable all time.
