Very nice people, the center is ideally located and they have amazing facilities. We traveled there without our equipment but the rental gear they had was excellent. Mick, the... More

My husband and I visited during our holiday this year. My husband is a experienced diver but it has always terrified me, however I wanted to try again after an unsuccessful attempt on our honeymoon 26 years previously.
