My wife and I are both first time divers with zero experience. Anton did a great job explaining various safety and hand techniques. We both had a great experience and highly recommend Sierra Madre and Anton to anyone visiting Alona Beach. Thanks again, Anton!

We did two amazing dives in Balicasage Island. Thank you very much to our dive master, Anton, who was very professional and calm. Only negative point, our "dephtmeter" was not working.
