A very knowledgeable trainer and guide
I've just completed my second course with Marlon and the excellent quality of training and the overall experience was as good as it was 12 months ago! A very knowledgeable trainer and guide. Well worth the 7 hour drive to Sorrento!

Absolute must to do
The absolute must to do, if you get the opportunity! In fact, we saw dolphins and in fact they were close enough to touch! After one swam under my feet and then looked at me for a few seconds, he moved back on his way! Absolute happiness hormone extension !! After we all went swimming with the dolphins, we went to a platform where sea lions sunbathed, you could almost dive in the water through those who did not sleep! The team never leaves your eyes and they try hard to explain everything that matters! Finally I have to say, I am jealous of this job and I will not forget this incredible experiences! Thanks to all for the nice day !
