Family before me were very happy with their experience and looked elated. My husband had a great experience and loved it, but I had to come back up after a few minutes as the pressure hurt my ears so much. I was told to try to hold and blow my nose but I couldn’t get my hand into the helmet far enough to do this. I gave it a go but it was really far too painful for me to stay on the sea bed. The diver with us was very good and took me back to the surface. Most people I speak to love it. Sadly I could not enjoy due to the pressure, If you have ear issues it’s not for you. It’s been a few days since, My ears on the mend but not yet back to normal and still bit sore. For many people it’s a great experience and the diver with you is sensible and keen for safety. Our car driver for the day trip was great and very knowledgeable, nothing too much trouble for him. Lovely man. Thank you
