Lutwala is located at the end of the Island away from the main tourist strip where the other dive schools and bars are. Which gives it such a nice vibe especially as its situated right on the beach! Everyone that works there is lovely, fun and experienced in the area which means you have awesome dives! I wouldn't dive with... More

The dive locations were close and full of wildlife, pricing was great and safety was spot on. What really makes the experience however is the instructors there, full of... More

Even when i struggled at the beginning Sérgio somehow knew exactly... More
