Comments We had a wonderful experience with Action Divers. Our divemaster Simon Birtles was teriffic. The company is one of the smaller on the beach, however the service was phenominal.Diving is from local diesel powered general purpose boats, an easy back roll in, and exit via ladders after the crew hoists in your BC. All gear is carried to and from the boat by the shore crew. The crew is local, the dive masters and instructors expats. There were 3 scheduled dives a day, however the destination could be varied to accomodate the desires of the divers. From high energy drift dives to gentle reef dives this amazingly beautiful location has it all within a 5 minute boat ride.
Simon combined being an attentive dive master with a keen eye for underwater natural wonders. As there were 5 of us diving together, we could pretty much go where we wanted when we wanted.
