Hermann Preil, Hong Kong

I just finished spending a week with Atlantis Dive for the ScubaBoard Invasion. I can’t say enough about the customer service. They are the best. Everyone knew us by name as soon as we walked in the door. Amazing! The staff knew us.. They knew what we wanted, and how we wanted it.

The food is second to none.. Amazing food! Along with the amazing food, they went out of their way to prepare it the way you wanted it. Gluten free diet? Boom! There it is. Fabulous food.

At Atlantis you will feel like one of the family. The phrase “Come as a guest… leave as friend” has been coined over recent years by the large number of returning guests and ever growing number of “Atlantis friends” around the world.

The dive team come from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and has an abundance of experience both within the dive industry and from many other fields; knowledge and experience that they will share with you during the week completing an all round experience.

The team is headed up by two in house PADI Course Directors who bring with them a wealth of teaching experience and here to make sure you get the most from your program.

He thoroughly believes in the dive industry as a rewarding career and is happy to share his experience and knowledge during IDCs.
