Lanzarote Diving

 

Euro-divers.com Diving Review

 

Jeff – September 2019 “On my first day of the diving holiday I was greeted by the Euro-divers guide and my equipment was picked up from my Hotel where I was staying. My diving equipment was then taken to the boat for my first day of diving. Sadly this didn’t continue with my equipment being left at the Eurodives Centre and myself and diving buddies having to travel ourselves to each diving location.”

 

Our Dive Guide Mr Rabeling was lovely and helpful.

 

The Aquatic Life was excellent at our diving locations with good visibility while diving. This Lanzarote dive was in September 2019

Cyprus Diving

 

www.qdivers.com Diving Review

 

Jeff – October 2019 “I was looking forward to getting some good dives in on the Island of Cyprus with warm waters between 20-25 degrees, perfect temperatures. Sadly the Aquatic life during all dives was poor. Visibilty was good and approximately 30+Mtrs.

 

The highlight of my dives was the beautiful Zenobia Wreck which I would highly recommend. A swift 10 minute boat journey and we were kitting up for our dive.

 

The QDivers team were very helpful and friendly throughout our diving trip.

Rhodes Diving

 

Lepiadive.com Diving Review

 

Jeff -October 2019 “I had taken a group to dive with Lepia Dive Centre and they were excellent, permitting self courses with my group. They were also friendly and very helpful. Some nice wreck locations on Rhodes and the aquatic life was quite active with warm waters of 20-25 degrees and good visibility.
