Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the big smile and friendly welcome at the front desk to the dive masters themselves, everything was friendly professional. Safety was key which always puts you at ease and that makes the days dives all the more enjoyable. Keep up the great work team and see you all again soon. Cheers Andrew.

Absolutely fantastic snorkelling trip.

Elise and Josh were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We saw 3 eagle rays,red snappers plus loads of blue and yellow fish. We were lucky enough to see a shoal of dolphins in the bay just made an amazing experience even better. Must mention Wendy too who was really friendly and totally went out of her way to accommodate us. A really well run great team. Lovely afternoon. Thanks !

Wow, Hahei is absolutely stunning, just wish I had longer there!
Water was super clear the day I dived, lots of fish around, a few caves to creep by and seaweed which had a way of shiny gold in the sun!
Elise took care of me and was super fun and positive to be around.
I will be back for sure!
