You need a warm suit (full suit 7 mm Neopren), best is a dry suit. The water temperature is never very warm. Even at a surface temperature of 18°C in August the temperature in 20 meter can be under 10°C.
During the summer months we leave the warf at 9:00 and are back between 13:00 and 14:30
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.)
