* A traveler said: "My fiance and I booked the diving tour with them after reading so many great reviews about the people. And those reviews were right! I was VERY fearful about diving - everything from rolling backward into the water from the boat to not panicking under water to completing the training had me petrified. But the team (Alex, Ivan, and Ursula) helped me stay calm and made me feel safe. Once I figured out how to not panic and breathe too deeply (I found closing my eyes made a difference to help slow down my breathing), I really enjoyed the dive. I'll say the reef itself wasn't the most colorful or interesting I've seen, but for us it was really more about the experience of diving itself. I'm so proud that I was able to overcome this fear and learn a new skill with the help of the amazing instructors! I'll definitely continue diving in the future! I'm a huge scaredy cat, so if I can do it, anyone can! :)"
