Comments We stayed at ClubMed but dove independently from the club and it was about 1/2 price. Thierry (a 3rd generation owner) was very easy to work with and actually spotted a pregnant male seahorse, octopus, spotted eagle ray, turtle, etc. This was my first dive since Covid and after I turned 80. Three certified divers and my daughter who did a Resort style dive. We had a nice lunch brought over from the restaurant next door. Sorry about any typos but Iím writing on a iPhone and trying to submit before the deadline.
