good school

I had always wanted to surf but I still had the doubts about whether it was mine or not. Thanks to the baptism of diving I was able to learn the basics and do an immersion. Although I do not think I will dive again because it is not entirely mine, I do not regret having tried it. They have also been very friendly and professional.

buena escuela

Siempre había querido busear pero me quedaba la duda de si era lo mio o no lo era. Gracias al bautismo de buceo pude aprender lo basico y hacer una inmercion. Aunque no creo que vuelva a bucear porque no es del todo lo mio, no me arrepiento de haberlo probado. ademas han sido muy amables y profesionales.

Highly recommended

It was my first dive and it was great! We were told everything with a lot of patience before we went into the water and the guides were always there for us. The underwater world was beautiful and I now decided to make a dive.

Sehr empfehlenswert

Es war mein erster Tauchgang und es war spitze! Uns wurde alles mit viel Geduld erklärt bevor wir ins Wasser gegangen ist und die Guides waren immer für uns da. Die Unterwasserwelt war wunderschön und ich habe mich jetzt dazu entschieden einen Tauchschein zu machen.
