Took my advance certification and did 8 fun dives here. Johann and his crew are all friendly, knowledgeable and they know all the good places to dive around the island. If you like diving and are heading for Neil Island you should try this!

best is scuba diving around 25 meters. if you have your open water scuba ceticifaction (18 meter depth), you can ask to do an "adventure dive" with an instructor and go deep.
