Divemaster, Lanzarote

Just returned from holiday in Playa Blanca and enjoyed 4 dives with them. It was really well organised, with a friendly team and the dive sites were all varied and interesting. I am a qualified diver, but my wife also did a Try Dive and she really enjoyed it. Marc was really supportive and helped her overcome any nerves.
I’ve dived often while on holiday and I thought Dive College was the best i’ve used over the years.
