Excellent first diving experience for my teenage daughter and me. We felt in very safe hands after instruction video and briefing. Our group were split into bubbles with a guide each. Our lovely guide, Sergei, gave us the confidence to really enjoy this amazing experience. Thankyou, Sergei!

Marin was our Guide on a beginner Dive tour. He was totally very Kind to us and took care at every part of our Dive. You can clearly see his Passion for Diving and that was the thing that made the Dive an unforgettable experience and totally worth the Price! Definetly recommended!

Yesterday I went on two dives with Orca, a check dive in the morning and a dive through the cave system surrounding a nearby island. One thing that struck me immediately was the attention to safety at this center. It had been a year since my last dive and they made sure that I got my check dive before going out on he boat trip. This was comforting as I wanted an instructor to make sure my skills were sufficient. On the check dive, the guide (Banko) was very conscientious of everyone diving, making sure to keep an eye on our air consumption as well as our proficiency in skills and buoyancy. After the dive, I hung out at the center until the next dive and was treated as family amongst the staff, invited to share lunch with them and chat until the next dive. The cave dive was led by Sergae who was very professional and takes his craft seriously. Before getting in the water, he gave a thorough briefing and made sure everyone was comfortable with the plan. On the dive, he made sure each of us made it through all of the caves safely, waiting for everyone's "OK" sign upon emerging from the other side.
I couldn't recommend this five center more highly in terms of professionalism, safety, knowledge, and hospitality. Thanks for the great day Orca!
