  • Awesome experience diving underwater again after so many years off. It was a very rough sea. Luckily, I got a sea sick tablet from another diver. Definitely necessary. So it was a great dive with a great guide, Philippe and skipper James. They had a great eye on everyone. It was worth it, lots of different sharks, rays, turtles, schools of fish, just great at Flat Rock with this team. Thank you, will see you again for sure
  • Excellent diving centre. I did the refresher course which was really thorough and which gave me a lot of confidence doing the double dive the next day. Hire gear was in good condition. Staff were professional, friendly and helpful. Conditions were excellent. Amount of wildlife were spectacular. Highly recommend.
  • Amazing dive centre. Dive boat is run very well. Great dives. All the guys made you feel so welcome. We'll definitely be back for more diving in the future. Highly recommend these guys to anyone
  • Staff were all so knowledgeable, passionate and friendly! Was fun how they launched the boat into the water, and saw plenty of leopard sharks, turtles and rays, and even a massive pod of dolphins when we were driving out on the boat! Will 110% come back. The second dive was probably my favourite dive ever.
  • Best hostel on the island 😉. Pretty decent rooms and everything was clean with a few different areas to relax in. Diving with them was fantastic lots of fun on the boat. Thanks guys
