Got my PADI open water with Karang Divers about a week ago and the experience way exceeded my expectations. Professional, personal and fun, I couldn't have asked for a better dive school to take the course. Having such friendly and patient instructors was also a huge plus. The skills training was thorough and the diving, better than expected. We saw loads of turtles on our final dive (granted, the dive site is named "Turtle City") and lots of colourful coral and fish at Halik Reef. There is an overwhelming choice of dive schools in the Gilis, but I say, stop looking and book with Karang Divers! Gili Air is also nice and quiet at the moment, a much better spot than Gili T, if you want to chill out in between dives. Thanks again Alex and Dante!! I can't wait to plan my next escape from Hanoi and this time, the diving will take priority. You've inspired us to go for our advanced so we can experience so much more. Better get a few more dives under my belt first. Cheers!

Many, many thanks for your sterling review; it means so much to us as a small, boutique business!
Marian and you were an absolute pleasure to teach; it could hardly have been called `work` for me!
Really glad your experience was a good one; you both soldiered on through the post-dive queasiness, and were lovely to hang out with.
You MUST dive, as much as possible, and keep in touch...we love hearing all about our students adventures :)
Take care, and cheers again for leaving such a glowing review!
