Φοβερή εμπειρία!!! Κάναμε 2 βουτιές με την Σίλβια τον Σεπτέμβριο και μείναμε με τις καλύτερες εντυπώσεις από την Μεσσηνία. Τα παιδιά έχουν ολοκαίνουργιο εξοπλισμό, είναι πολύ οργανωμένοι και βάζουν ως προτεραιότητα την ασφάλεια σου. Θα σας επισκεφτούμε ξανά του χρόνου!!!

Great experience! Lovely place to dive and snorkel. We went snorkeling and the skilled instructors take you to the best places to see the octopusses, all kinds of fish and even a murene and lion fish. Time flew by before we knew. Thank you Sylvia and Andreas and good luck with your business!

Sylvia nam ons mee voor een snorkling tour. Echt de moeite waard want zij toont je, door haar ervaring, dieren die je zelf niet zou vinden (mureen, octopus, …). Professioneel materiaal ook. Je krijgt dus waar voor je geld. Bedankt sylvia en adreas
