A quality operator who utilise good instructors, good equipment and run a professional operation. The dive spots recommended were excellent (shipwrecks are the best). Value for money with friendly service.

Amazing dive and crew, very different to little old New Zealand! Good to have a fellow New Zealand lad as part of the crew too.
