Almost a 5 star review. TLDR: When booking ahead of time online, you're talking to Spain, their HQ. There were miscommunications and our plans were jumbled. Onsite customer service was very good. Actually diving and excursions were great. We booked our dives and excursions

Dear guest, Thank you for almost giving us a five-star review and for mentioning up front that the onsite customer service was very good and the diving and excursions were great. We apologize for the planning problem you encountered on day 1, and we too are surprised by it. What you mention clearly is not in line with our normal operation procedures and customary on time service. Therefore, we had a very serious meeting with everyone involved to review and allow everyone to learn from it, to become even better at what they do, individually and as a team. The problem was not the paperwork but the timing. We were supposed to pick you up earlier from your hotel but staff got confused on the instructions from our central office on what was actually planned for you. So truly the paperwork had nothing to do with you missing the first dive. It is just we should have planned your pick up for an earlier time and everything would have fallen perfectly into place as planned. Our staff at the dive center very much regret this mix up and apologize again. For a next trip we will certainly take this into consideration and make up for your good patience and flexibility to help us put things back on track. To close we would like to thank you for your feedback because we are always trying to improve our services and offer explanations in case of doubts. Your satisfaction is important to us, and so is your return visit. We hope we can look forward to seeing you soon again for more diving adventures. Sincerely Steven Peter Quality Manager

Went scuba diving for the first time and the instructors were absolutely amazing. Rob took the time with me in the pool to make me feel comfortable because i was going to bail. Definitely glad i didn't, ended doing 2 dives that day and the reef and the fish were breathtaking.

My boyfriend and I dove twice with Kat. Admittedly, I was nervous and she absolutely put me at ease. We'll be getting certified now! Thanks, Kat, for helping me check a bucket list box!
