Comments We came to Carriacou with our catamaran. Seeing a beautiful aquatic life just by snorkeling with my daughter of 6 years, my husband suggest that I should try with scuba dive course since that was my dream. But could not afford it, money wise and time wise until then.

First contact with Diane from Lumba dive was more then great and after meeting Richard, I knew I met people with a lot of experiences and full of joy for doing what they do. Showing you, how you can learn safely to dive and have fun!

It was great going out (down under) to explore the aquatic life, having all the time friendly and very calm instructor who was not just highly competent in leading me around a coral reefs but also showing me a lot of interesting under water species. Seeing turtle, 100 and more different type of fishes, lobsters, octopus and so on so on, I always end up being very enthusiastic about doing a next dive. And very happy to choose Lumba dive. As a mother I did want to have a secure feeling in exploring the depth of Carriacou sea but as a person I also want to have fun. I got both.

So, instead of only scuba dive course I end up with open water dive certificate. And I will do a next step with Lumba dive.

Thanks Diane and Richard and the rest of your "family".
