We went there for the Chinese new year. A great dive centre, amazing dives with turtles, sharks, nice corals, frogfish or ghost pipefish. Very good, we were 3 divers with one guide, long and safety dives. Other groups were small also.

Staff were good, easy to book with. Only let down is there is lots of rubbish in the water and we all got stung by little jelly fish.
