“LEXY AND NEIL WERE AMAZING!”
This was the best thing we did in Phuket. Lexy and Neil did an excellent job of making all of us feel comfortable. I loved every moment of our experience. 3 out of 4 of us were beginners. By the end of the first dive, we all felt fairly confident thanks to Lexy and Neil Thank you Lexy and Neil!...
