A dive shop by divers, for divers. We are a small shop but pack a punch with our customer service. Our aim is to provide a quality service to all our customers. Small groups of fun divers(1:4) and small education classes ensure that you get the personal treatment that you deserve. If you feel that your expectations are not being met, then please tell us and we will strive to improve. We run daily local fun dives and boat trips to the surrounding islands, along with discovery dives and diver training classes. If space allows, we can also accommodate snorkellers on the boat trips.
The ocean. It’s our office, so we like to take care of it. We consider good training as the key to producing good divers, which in turn protects our coral reefs.
