TamaDive est sans doute l'organisme de plongée à choisir les yeux fermés. Anxieuse d'effectuer mon baptême de plongée, mon moniteur Franco fût patient, pédagogue, consciencieux et à su me détendre avec sa touche d'humour... Au programme une bonne humeur du staff sur le bateau, une prise en charge et retour à l'hôtel mais surtout une large diversité de poissons, un poulpe, des raies... et des requins à pointe blanche! J'ai tellement adoré que je suis repartie en plongée avec TamaDive 3 jours plus tard. Merci pour cette expérience inoubliable ;)
