I hadn’t been scuba diving for about 3 years, but Douglas did a great job of making sure I had a safe and very enjoyable dive. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many lobsters in one place! Well worth doing.

You would say that fishes, turtles, sharks, rays and all the micro fauna down there is waiting for Dougie. Dive with him once and you will always come back: for top safety, real magic of encounters, and the feeling to be diving with number one...More
