If you do not have proof of diving in the last 12 months, you will be required to complete a refresher course before diving with us.
If you wish to book with us please fill in the booking sheet with your info and desired dates of activity and send it to the centre you wish to dive with, then we’ll confirm your booking.
We advise you to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
