I have been diving 6 times with a friend and every time we had a good assistance. Diving safety and on time is always a concern. Everyone speaks English and all the staff is very kind. A special tanks to Remilson.

We’ve just completed our PADI Wreck Diving course with New Wave. Exceptional instructors and all of the staff are friendly and accommodating. Safety is a very high priority and the whole experience from planning our dives to talking them through afterwards was great. Highly recommended!
