On average, we have more than 50 different diving activities every month. See below for our range of PADI courses, free guided shore dives, boat dives, freedivers and more. There is no need for you to have a buddy because our divemasters can organise a dive buddy for you. As long as you have proof of certification, no matter the diver certification agency (PADI, SSI, BSAC, ANDI, RAID, GUE), you can come diving with us.
