What people are saying about Las Palmas
Absolutely incredible first approach to the world of diving. Truly TOP instructor who does not hesitate to take her time to give explanations and rehearse if necessary. Very welcoming once in the water and reassuring, it goes at our pace. I would not hesitate if I were you, to do it again !!! We laughed a lot and had a great time. (explanations in English but very easy to understand). Magnificent photos surrounded by fish as souvenirs.
This course is very suitable for beginners. Although the course is in English, everything is easy to understand. After the introduction, diving is 3-4 meters deep. Nevertheless, a lot of fish can be seen. The diving instructors are very friendly and ensure an optimal diving experience.
Totally recommendable. Very attentive both Juan Carlos and Yemi. All very safe, and the immersion very fun. They are always attentive that you are comfortable and feel safe. Without a doubt we will repeat a new dive with them.
