I did the Open Water Diver Course here at El Dive. Master Yoshi had a spot open for me very spontaneously. I actually just came to the shop to get information for the course but I could immeditely stay for the theory lesson. Our Instructor Glen explained everything very understandably and answered our questions calmly. He eased us into our first diving experience and teached us the necessary skills in such a calming way that we got very comfortable under the water. In general the instructors and boatcrew of this dive shop are really nice and friendly people. You don‘t get hurried to get into the water and you can take the time you need which is not only comforting but also necessary to have a safe experience. You get lunch on the boat for 3 dice fun-dives and the licence courses which is really fresh & very delicious. I like that payment can be completed by cash, credit card or paypal. Thank you for everything Glen & Master Yoshi and see you some time!

If you're looking a professional and fun diving experience/ certification course, El Dive is the place to go! Before starting the course, I was greeted and welcomed by the shop owner, Yoshi-san. He made me and the other divers feel very welcomed. Thanks for the hospitality! And I was so lucky to have Glen as my instructor! I was very anxious and uncomfortable during my first dive as it was my first time diving. At one point of time, I was actually considering about giving up.. thankfully, Glen managed to calm me down with detailed explanations about how I'm supposed to feel underwater and how to make myself more comfortable. I'm so glad that I persevered as I'm now a certified diver! Thank you Glen for being so professional :) All in all, I would definitely recommend El Dive for fun dives or diving courses

I did my PADI open water certificate with them. They're amazing. The owner, the boat crew and the dive instructors are all so nice and friendly. It's a quality dive center. They have good quality gear and seem to be professionals in what they're doing. Had great knowledge of the diving sites and knew everything well. Also the price here is really good. I did my license with Glen Comprendio. he's a chill guy and i had a lot of fun with him. He's a really good diving instructor. Was able to teach me everything really quick and whenever I had questions he was able to explain it really clearly and i could follow his explanations without problems. He managed to teach me anything without any problems, and i could really feel that he's s professional. The diving felt really safe with him and it was a great diving experience.

The entire service in the shop and on the boat was superb! Most memorable of my 3 dives with El Dive was the attention to detail that dive master Mark had! He really pointed out stunning things to me, that I would have not noticed without.

Many thanks to Yoshi and his team for the quality of their services. We really enjoyed diving with El Dive. The dives were great ! We saw beautiful turtles among so many other fishes. The islands and lagoons on the way to the dive sites, are just stunning. It’s like having a tour while diving. Yoshi, the dive master, was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. We could feel the Japanese style in the service : reliable, organized, mastered and incredibly focus on the customers. Thanks again for your help Yoshi, we will not forget you. The tea you brought us and your kindness the days after. We wish you the best in life. Arigato Gozaimasu.
