TripAdvisor’s review from September 2015 …..

I booked my dive prior to arrival and called into the centre on Monday 7th Sept. I was immediately struck by the friendliness of the owners there on the day. My booked dive for the Tuesday was postponed due to poor weather and rescheduled for Thursday.

“From arrival on Thursday I was impressed by the professionalism of the Staff and especially Charles, our Dive leader that day.
Charles, David and myself dived Marina Del Este, a small bay with a shingle shore. We had 2 fantastic dives, the 1st to the left of the bay in 20m with loads of fish and coral on view. Then after a SIT, we walked to the second site on the right side of the bay and had a truly amazing 15-18m dive. Again the underwater life was stupendous to say the least.
All in all, this company care for their customers and if you have any idea of ocean life and marine conservation give your time to Charles and you will be suitably rewarded. I can`t speak for the other leaders in “into the Blue Diving” but I’m sure their dedication to this professional dive company will be equal to Charles.
Finally my thanks to David, my buddy on our dive, and I`m sure I`ll be diving here again soon”.

Another Review August 25, 2015

“This was my first dive I have wanted to do this for 50 years I couldn’t have chosen a better place to do it all the staff are extremely friendly and professional, I was put at ease immediately and felt safe from the very start, now I’m looking forward to my next dive”.
