Our first ever time diving and it was fantastic, from Stevie in the office and Connor instructing it was a great experience, I was pretty nervous about breathing underwater and Connor’s calm guidance got me through and I was able to complete a full dive. A highlight of the holiday and a great life experience. Thank you guys - we also had to cancel a family member at the last minute and Stevie arranged a refund and nothing was a problem. Thanks also to Griso, very nice to meet you, too (might have spelt this wrong, sorry) Rob, Chrissy, Ollie and Luke
