We went around the check out the dive shops in the area (you can find 3-4), and we found Lotus as the most friendly and welcoming. They had a bit of a better price, so we arranged the dives for the following day. Pick up was on time, we had a light breakfast at the dive center and met the... More

Highly recommend Lotus diving especially if it is your first dive. The team Kim, Sly and Yann are pris and make you feel very safe and prepared before and while in the water. They took us to Sail rock , the best place to see lots of different species of fishes And we saw not one but 2 whale sharks... More

My time with Lotus Diving was exactly what I was looking for. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. They all worked to ensure that my travel outside of the island all went to plan. They made the open water course really exciting and interesting and have me stoked to go again! Yann is the man!

Had an awesome day's diving with Lotus. Very professional setup, well run boat and well maintained equipment. Our guide, Ricardo, was fantastic. He dived slowly and pointed out lots of interesting things. He also provided a very thorough briefing. Lunch and breakfast were great and overall I felt really well looked after by the Lotus team. I would highly recommend... More

Very nice service from these guys. First, they arranged pick-up from the hotel, provide breakfast and sea sickness tablets :). Then, they set everything up for the dive, and all you have to do is kit up and enjoy. The ratio of dive-master to divers was nice and small. In between dives, they provide nice meal and fruit...
