Amazing ! The guide was super nice. He explained everything to us really well, he was very encouraging and reassuring. We were entitled to a free video which we received very quickly. It was just my friend and I for the diving which was really nice.

Amazing experience, Awesome instructor. Wow, what an experience we all had. From sending my enquiry to receiving our video, the communication was amazing with a quick response. The whole day was absolutely incredible. Firstly greeted by Mike our instructor, who shown us the safety video and checked we understood it to keep us safe out in the water. If we didn't understand something we talked through it again. Once kitted out in our wetsuits, we headed down to the water which was a lovely little cove near to Green Bay just past Protarras. And it looked like it was a popular spot for exploring what our oceans have to offer. During our 'training' within the bay, we went over the skills required to be safe and Mike believed we were all safe to continue to dive. However, it was at this point Max our 12 year old lad had a moment where he didn't want to continue as kept getting water up his nose on more than one occasion. Mike was very patient with him and gave him lots of encourage but unfortunately Max didn't want to continue. So, we sent him back to shore while we went off and explored. During the dive, I had a 'moment' myself where like Max I thought I had water up my nose. However, again with the patience and reassurance from Mike, I was able to continue with the dive. The waters were crystal clear, plenty of fish, sadly no turtles and an experience I will remember forever. Added bonus is that we've also got the photos as evidence. Max has since said that he would certainly try to dive again in the future. Myself will 100% go diving again. Stef, who frequently free dives is now actively looking at doing his PADI course back home in Cornwall, UK. Thank you again to Mike for being an awesome instructor and Ben for your prompt reply to my messages.

Memorable experience, fantastic instructors Fantastic experience with Ben and Mick, took 3 complete novices from briefings in their dive centre to a 45min dive exploring MUSAN - amazing. Clear and friendly instruction and very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend Cyprus and Nautilus for your next diving adventure!

Amazing diving experience Had a great time with Ben during the Discover Scuba Diving experience. We discussed beforehand the necessary skills to be done while diving and a day later we went to dive together. He was very patient with me and helped getting accustomed to breathing with a regulator. Would totally go to a scuba diving trip with Ben if I'm back in Cyprus again.

Breathtaking experience We booked everything through the app and everything worked perfectly! We were picked up from the hotel on time and taken to the station where everything was explained to us very well. Then we drove to the beach where everything was explained/shown to us several times with a lot of patience and in a very courteous manner! We are still excited and fascinated by the experience and would recommend it to anyone! Ben does a great job😍👏🏼

What a dive! THAT WAS THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE IN OUR LIFE ! The instructor ( Mick, hopefully I didn't misspell your name:)) was incredibly meticulous and patient , who is also an 30-years-experienced diving instructor.  The most important thing is that we were in safe hands, at first we were a bit worried since it was our first dive, but it turned out to be a joyful and wonderful experience. Frankly speaking , We'd never forget that day in Cyprus , such a unique and extremely enjoyable time we've spent together. We highly recommend it, and will definitely come here again one day.

Ben a formé nos 2 garçons au PADI Open water. La formation s’est très bien déroulée avec la sécurité en filigrane. Calme, apaisé, les enfants ont adoré. On a eu l’occasion de les accompagner lors d’une dernière plongée et c’était top ! merci infiniment pour votre sérieux 🙏🏻
