Extraordinary experience, for two big reasons: seeing for the first time the underwater world and also doing it with a professional crew. If you grew up watching Little Mermaid, Atlantis or Aquaman and if you know you've always loved the sea, then you must dive in it, at least once in your lifetime. (one more "if": not being claustrophobic). And I totally recommend doing it with this company. Andrea and his colleagues were great : organized, attentive, patient to hear all your questions, funny and engaging.

The diving tour was perfect. Me and my two kids 13 and 14, all first time divers, enjoyed it a lot. We got an instruction on how to use the equipment and went under wanter to marvel the sea life. On the way to the diving spot we also had an interesting presentation about the formation of the surrounding area by volcanic eruptions.

Was a very relaxed and pleasant group. Only me and my friend went diving, each with a guide who can help you very well under water. The others went snorkeling. The half hour in the water felt a lot longer and was enough for the first time. Was a great experience.
