Something miraculous and indefinable happens to us every time we dive. Maybe it`s the sheer wonder of being exposed to a new, unpredictable world, or the exhilaration of hanging motionless in warm, clear water alongside a whale shark, or being dazzled by the rainbow colours of so many different creatures finned, fronded, and tentacled, on the coral reefs.

Perhaps it`s simply the peace. Leave your stresses at the surface and experience the planet in a completely different way. Join us where the only sounds are the crackling and popping of the coral, the clicks of the shrimps and gentle exhalations of the regulator.



“ I can mention many moments  that were unforgettable and revelatory.  But the most single revelatory three minutes was the first time I put on scuba gear and dived on a coral reef."

- Sir David Attenborough -
