"Booked for 2 weeks and stayed for 2 months. Honestly, joining this program was the best decision i’ve ever made! Diving there was magical. So many sites and so many beautiful corals and colours. Every dive had something different to offer and by the time i left i had learned so much about the ocean and about the reefs. The people there became my family and sodwana bay became my home. We visited the most beautiful sites, watched breathtaking sunsets, ate the tastiest foods and met so many amazing people i will forever love and treasure. I’m so glad i decided to take this trip, it opened so many new opportunities and helped me gain new perspectives in life. 2 months were absolutely not enough, as every day i wished i could’ve stayed just a little bit longer. Leaving this place was heartbreaking but im super glad I get to go back soon. This program and experience can not be topped by anything else i’ve ever tried and i feel very sad for those who will never get to experience living life for what it is in the most homelike little town."
