From the beginning, the crew of the dive center was friendly and helpful in every way. They achieved to have different groups on different levels, which other dive centers fail upon. They organized the transport between our hotel and the dive center. Absolutely friendliest divers!!

Katharina, Perrine and Sebastian.. Thank you for a great experience in September. Diving was great, always tea, coffee and good conversation before and after. Katharina is all business when it's dive time. Well maintained. See you January 2015!

I tried Sea Urchin for scuba diving and was pleasantly surprised. The instructor was good and explained all rules patiently. The equipment, dive location were great too. The dive itself was awesome - the reef, the fishes were plenty and added to the whole experience.
