Student comments:   The course is very good for first time divers like me, though I think the 2-4 day course would have done it more justice. Dive instructor was very good and helped us get attuned to the enviroment quickly and was there to help whenever we needed him.

Beautiful dive sites!! And the most colourful fishes ... all in all, loved the pristine clear waters.

If time is a constraint, this one day course is ideal.
Instructor comments:   Both ladies struggled a little at first, but by the end of the day they cracked it. Well done ladies!
