He would recommend diving with Downbelow to anyone visiting KK

Hello,

Just wanted to feed back what a great time we had diving with you back in September.

As a new diver it was amazing for me, and your team really did make it easy for me. Cat is delighted with her photos – thanks for spending time showing her how to use the camera and tips etc – it’s now going to cost me to buy one, but it’ll be worth it.

The island and food were great, the diving was great and all the instructors were quality.

I would recommend diving with Downbelow to anyone visiting KK. Thanks for sorting out all our other day trips for us.
