I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experience the Grotto Bay Discovery Dive out to North Rock

From start to finish it was an incredible experience including the tuition, skills session and then our dive itself. I was amazed at how much we got to see and do in just an afternoon.

The team at Grotto Bay were fantastic, really professional and adapted to the needs of the group. Especially when I was struggling with ear pressure they were calm and got me down - thanks especially to Robyn.
