  • Me and my girlfriend have just done our diving license here and couldn't be happier about our decision. If you want a sustainable diving school that attaches an incredible amount of importance to the preservation of the sea and also puts a lot of care on their diving course, you will make the right choice here.

  • This was mine first diving lesson in my life I have fear of water what I really want to over come and be able to swim in paradise I went for diving lesson to get licence and to learn what I have been advice by great divers how to do that and I joing this school. From very start this place is nothing more then money making and fake smiles I come over explain what I want to do and reason. I was told it will cost me 11.000 to do that So I said ok I put 2000 bath as deposits and they said if I don't like after first day I don't have to pay. I thought what great people are ( if I just know what is awaiting) My first day was let's get this quickly what is teaory and we get in water half of theory I didn't get As we start 10 min on boat I felt sea sick When we stop I said to my instructor that I feel sick , she give me tablet and I was hoping I will get better but I never did I was siting by myself with no any help from instructor or other staff on boat I was getting every min by min sick I look beach is to far to swim , ocean was very strong to try ... I ask instructor if anyone can come and take me back because we even didn't start yet and I was so sick, she said that I will have to wait till they come back to centre around 15 30pm and it was only 10 40 am at time .or I can swim to the beach . So I have decided to swim that was my only hope .when I went in ocean I realise how my body is weak and didn't realise how powerful curant was going around me till I got in I try to swim but I felt I will not make it Fear was so strong and ocean to I shout for instructions to help and she did She swim next to me and was very supportive I thank her for that she realised that I am struggling. I come to beach and I was so sick ..didn't want to come out of toilet for some time I ask for taxi and went back to centre. There was not interested at all what happened to me ...absolute no interest. They ask me to pay extra 1000 bath , total 3000 bath (100 euro) for 10 min trip. I pay what they ask ...I was grateful that I am a live. I feel very disappointed that I didn't over come my fear of deep water. I feel disappointed to that there is no any support to you If something like this happens Nobody was interested, nobody is there to bring you back health and safety don't exist. I don't believe how this happens that one will think that should be priority number one ..not at all I could die and no one would give a s.... They want money from you and that is all what they care.... I paid what they ask , didn't want to argue over money, I was grateful that I am a live, but I feel that Maybe I can help someone who is like me for first time and get something out of my experience. Ps I heard that divers instructors are paid 500 bath a day and been treated very bad by owner .. I wish haven canter very best I hope that they improve health and safety and wages of there stuff and treat humans with more respect ..it is not all about money
