Nous avons eu l'occasion de plonger plusieurs fois avec notre instructeur Julien, très très chouette expérience et super encadrement pour des novices comme nous. La formation en piscine permet de mettre en confiance et d'automatiser certains points (respiration, détendeur, eau dans le masque, flottabilité, sécurité, ...), ce qui nous permet de profiter au maximum de la plongée. Nous avons pu voir des raies manta, tortues, et toutes sortes de poissons. Très chouette expérience dans un super centre ! à refaire.
