Just returned from a dive with Octopus Scuba school. They are very knowledgeable in the diving rules of the region (you should definitely call them ahead of your holidays if you want to dive the Medes), and the dive was well planned. They took us from the dive shop to the port where they have their dive boat, put a... More
