“scuba diving with excitment”

Banana Divers Sierra Leone
Reviewed 11 February 2014

This diving center is probably very different o the one you are used to. A very small operator that receives minimal amount of divers, is still treating scuba diving with excitement, adventure and enthusiasm as the first scuba divers did half a century ago. be prepared to dive in places that no one has dived before -including your Dive Master!-. There is so much unexplored water in west Africa and so much history around Banana Island, that you will wish you had more time to dive. From the shipwrecks around the island the best is the Spanish war ship with several cannons, anchors and other artifacts from the 17 hundreds. Other shipwrecks are also impressive, but some challenging. The aquatic life is amazing and the visibility is much better than the mainland either for scuba diving or for free-diving. The equipment looks new, the dive master reliable, the boat crew as professional as you could hope in Africa and there are many boats to take you out.On the whole it is an exciting thing to do. Just remember that this is not the place to plan multiple fun dives in fast pace. Things are adventurous and exploring and planing/execution takes more time than you may think. But after you dive at Banana Island it is hard to appreciate the industrialized, fast-selling dive centers you have been diving with before...
