Student comments:   Used Dive The World as for my open water course; thoroughly satisfied with all aspects of the course. I have been extremely well looked after by the office and feel I have had a very high standard of tuition. I feel I am now far more competent & confident.

Good sites both days. Good variety - wreck, wall, hard and soft corals - marine life as always fascinating - leopard shark, cuttle fish, rays and a wide variety of pelagic.

None other than an excellent 2 days diving.

Instructor comments:   The dive sites on the first day was a bit difficult as he hasn't dived for a while and it was a strong current, however he did very well and after that he performed with good skill.
