“Cashing with poor & unsafe dives”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

1. security was the first issue I was worried about: tiny boat, 6 divers + 2 "guides" in the boat. Tow of the "tourist divers" were less than 10 years old - so kids... No briefing, impossible to move in the boat (so full) and we needed to wear all gear as no space in the boat. Both younger boys felt sick after the fist dive,anyhow they were allowed to jump in to the water with us for the second one.

2. tanks & security: we agreed that we will make 2 boat dives during the same day. We did not understand that it means 2 x 35 minute dive with the same tank... And the first dive was max 5,4 meters and the second in 10 meters... We saw millions of shells, few crabs, some fish, and that was about it....

3. finally: we agreed on the price 2 days before we went for diving. Then when we came back, the price doubled... We have never had such a misunderstanding anywhere in the world and especially as the "dives" were really not dives there were just "cashing the money"...

We cannot recommend this dive shop! There are naturally big differences in different countries, but this was the worst dive center I have used so far... (from 54 different countries where we have been diving so far).
