Very nice! Our guides were very informative and helpful and it was amazing to scuba dive for the first time! Directions were very clear from an English-speaking perspective. We also were provided lots of water. Only issue I ran into was the tour was not actually 1.5 hours long. It was more like 5 hours with the wait time!

It was absolutely an awesome highlight in my trip to Crete. As a nice non-swimmer, I was a little bit nervous at the beginning. But the crew was so professional and my instructor was always by my side and made me feel safe.

We had a great day diving at Aqua dive. Everything worked out very well and we had two great diving instructors. The transport was very nice as well. I‘d definitely recommend the tour for beginners! Thank you!

Very fun. They made us feel safe. Id recommend doing this with adults or if you have kids with mature teenagers. Diving is fun but no place to fool around.

Great experience. Maybe I will choose different part of beach.
