Great snorkelling experience for beginners or casual swimmers.

Unfortunately due to a previous injury, I wasn't able to scuba as I intended, but the team were really lovely and offered for me to snorkel instead with an option for a go-pro hire. I wish I'd known about the GoPro hire beforehand as I went and got myself a cheap waterproof camera and ended up having to return it. Wavebreak Island is a great beginners spot, staff were helpful and friendly throughout, you also get given mesh bags of fish feed which helps for photos and videos. Thank you to Steve for driving my group to the site, will try to visit again once I get my diving cert!

Had a fantastic day!

Staff were lovely and helpful. Made my son feel very relaxed about his Intro to Scuba Diving. Great location for a first dive. Will be going back to book Open Water Certification. I was allowed on the boat as Observer which was great! My only complaint is I got sunburnt! My fault.

Had a great day team were very experienced and our dive instructor knew her stuff. Got to see some good fish and some cool artificial reefs. Food would have been nice at the end but in all great day out. Will recommend to friends and family when they visit.
