I was very excited about my very first scuba diving experience and based on reviews and proximity to hotel my wife and I selected Sea Urchin Diving center. I was deeply disappointed by the quality of service.
1. The staff was rude to begin with and did not start on time
2. I can deal with #1, sure - there are rude folks everywhere. What I had the biggest problem with was the training. They took us to the shallow end of the sea and trained us for about 10-15 minutes. Thats it! Most other places have at least 30 - 45 minutes of training, including taking you to a flat water lagoon where you can get used to the breathing exercises.
Due to the lack of training I was not able to reach the surface. (I would like to add that i am a proficient swimmer) Also note that most places refund's your whole (or at least part of) the payment if you fail to complete your dive. This place does not!!
I would not recommend this place to anyone who is trying scuba for the first time.
