Got to go diving with Pierre the instructor . We had a great dive. Although the visibly was bad we were still able to see a lot of great fish. The weather had been bad the whole week. He also worked great during the discover scuba lesson for my girlfriend before the dive and made her feel very comfortable. .... More
