  • I paid in advance, I got pregnant, I went very badly, I canceled the trip, explained everything with documentation. They don't serve me anymore. Where's my refund?

  • I booked two accredited dives with Pablo months in advance. The day before I contacted him via WhatsApp during the day, to know if it was going to roll dive, since there was possibility of not happening due to weather conditions. He asked Me for a few hours to confirm, and nothing. The 7pm decided to call him again, and he asked me for 1 hours. He returned to Me saying that the conditions would not be good the next day, questioning whether we could do two days after, because the sea would be better. I said I didn't know, I explained why and I asked if we could cancel if I couldn't. He said loud and clear "since you can't pass it on Friday, we'll do it tomorrow because there are also some people who can't transfer." And he asked me for my boyfriend's foot number and stuff, everything that had happened to him for months. The next morning, I received a message from Pablo, telling me that my instructor (guide) would be Gabriel, and that it should be there at 8:45am. We're 10 minutes early. Gabriel, very considerate, explained everything and we boarded. I was surprised when I heard that MDS would only be us. Maybe that's why it wasn't Pablo? Maybe that's why we wanted to transfer it to Friday. Well, when I received my dive equipment, I was shocked. I've dipped in a lot of places in the world, some poor people, and when I don't take my personal equipment, I rent. The equipment in this store sucks. Old, poorly preserved and full of defects! My wetsuit (and my boyfriend's) had tears in it, my boyfriend had to switch BCG 2 times, and yet he got one that his octopus did not work properly, the mask only leaked, and apparently the Pablo passed the number of my wrong foot to him , for both the boot to the duck foot and the duck foot, came immense. Lucky someone on the boat helped, otherwise we'd be without diving. Nothing to complain about Gabriel itself as a guide, nor on the boat! But the company, I won't use it again.

  • -Guide/Instructor: excellent-Spot diving: Good Marine life-logistics: arrears, misunderstandings and long lost time. Two identical dives. -Equipment: Old and in bad condition-boat: Good-group: They mixed divers of different levels, bad thing. In addition the place was arrived from other delegations making baptisms and closures of OW, being a very massive and "dirty"-Description: My eldest son and I went to Arraial do Cabo, two dives in the same sector where the second took little profit. The teams were old and in bad shape, having to adapt to what was there. The guides were the best, however the final experience was regular. I find it hard to believe that they are a 5 star center.
