Great instructor!!

The staffs in diving shop are very nice. It was the first time to dive for me and I was a bit scared of going to deeper on a 1st day. But my instructor, Alvin is very good at training and always gave me clear explanations. Finally, I could enjoy my diving on a final day without fear because of him. I would love to take advance diving course here again!!! Thank you so much for this amaizing experiences.
