The guys at Galaxsea are amazing. They are a very friendly and knowledgeable bunch of enthusiastic divers, and the gear servicing is second to none. If you want to try diving these are the folk to speak to.

Diving is one of those sports that is meant to be fun while never compromising on safety. Finding this balance sounds a lot easier than it is but Galaxsea always manage to do so.
