”The dive sites as well as the people were better than I could have imagined. The most rewarding aspect of my stay was getting to learn about the reef systems from the people who know it best. Being able to dive every day and see new and amazing things every time was incredible. To summarize, it was such an amazing experience. The things I learned, the experience I gained and the people I’ve met are all unbelievable.”
