Customer Reviews

Amazing experience, seals were really fun to dive with and just turning around and entering the kelp forest was like being in a movie set. Great service, the dive master was really knowledgeable and took great care that you had fun, enjoyed your dive and learnt something about the local species too. Would totally recommend! - Cristina Bahamonde Castro
