For all those who love the ocean and new, unique and extreme experiences, diving is one of the best activities they can do. Nothing compares to the feeling in your stomach before diving into the depths of the sea to discover its mysteries. However, there is one factor that can be decisive regarding the quality of your experience: the instructor or dive guide. The dive guide is the person who will accompany you at all times while you dive and will be in charge of DOING EVERYTHING SO that you have a memorable and safe experience.
Like any risky sport and activity, diving requires certified and trained personnel who can teach you the proper ways and techniques so that you can enjoy your dive to the fullest.
