I was blessed with an incredible group of people, one that I consider family forever, and learned about the South African culture, from braais to the language, to the people. Highly recommend the underwater photography course to ANYONE interested in spending a month diving with a camera in hand to capture all the magnificent creatures Africa has to offer.
This course is amazing!! The wildlife you're exposed to is crazy, from whales to manta rats and awesome macro critters like seahorses whilst being surrounded in paradise and friendly locals.

Great value for money & such a great experience!!
