Diving in Diani or North Coast


Im coming back to Diani in November for a few months and want to learn to dive. Has anyone got any reccomendations for which company to go with to get a PADI open water certificate?. Is the South Coast the best place to do it? I don't mind going to the North Coast if it's better for diving, I stayed in Mtwapa for a while in April and saw a few places advertising it but not sure which would be better, north/south?.

My kids got their Open Water with Baracuda (Simone) down at Disni and they seemed very professional. There's also Buccanneer on the north coast too.

450 euros on their website for the course.
