Alex and Viki were great instructors and the group itself was great too. I feel confident to persue my scuba diving and had 4 enjoyable, instructive and fun packed days! Great value for money and definitely recommend.

Highly recommend!

We did our open water diver course at CDC and we couldn't recommend it enough. Our instructor Richard was fabulous, he really took his time to ensure you understand all techniques and little tricks. Plus he is a very very experienced diver and there was never a time when we didn't feel in good hands and absolutely safe. The groups are small so the instructor can keep a close eye on every student to make sure you are comfortable doing what is required. They will take you to the outer reef where you will definitely see beautiful corals, anemones and an abundance of colourful fish. Certainly suitable for both divers and snorkels! We highly recommend CDC, great atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Especially thanks to Richard for his patience and support, couldn't have wished for a better instructor!!
