I joined the Blue Coral Dive Centre for the 1 day tour to Cham Island. I hadn’t dived in 12 years, but all the staff were extremely helpful to ensure I felt safe and comfortable throughout the day. They talked me through all theory in the boat and did a skills refresher in the water. The dive instructor takes care of everything: tracking dive times, searching for interesting things to see and even checking our air levels as we went along. I felt fully looked after and really enjoyed the experience which was perfect to get me back into diving! (Elvie L)
