When we arrive at the dive site we always do a briefing so everybody of the dive team has an exact information of the dive site.
Our "house reef" is the wreck of the Arrow, just 30 minutes away by boat.
During the summer month we organise a biwak tours where we stay one night on an island in tents (we provide tents, sleeping bags etc.)
