Great snorkeling experience!

Myself and my younger brother (early thirties and a 17yr old) had a great experience with Laura from the Adventure centre. My second time snorkeling and my brother's first.
When we arrived she organised everything before left for the trip. We were well catered for and Laura informed us of what we were going to do when we arrived. We had two 'dives' separated by a break where Laura had brought snacks for us. Plenty to see around the rocks and Laura made sure we knew what we were seeing so we both really enjoyed the experience.
I'd definitely recommend it when in Costa Calida!

Beautiful diving area

I´ve been to the Mediterranean more often, but the diving area of ​​Mar Menor is simply incomparable! It is one of the most beautiful and spectacular dive sites of all Europe. Definitely recommendable.

Wunderschönes Tauchgebiet

Ich war schon öfter am Mittelmeer tauchen, aber das Tauchgebiet von Mar Menor ist einfach unvergleichlich! Es ist eines der schönsten und spektakulärsten Tauchgebiete von ganz Europa. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.
