Experience The Oasis Dive Resort

silence surrounds me. My breath slowly rises and falls to the beat of the waves... A swarm of dolphins passes by. Plunges towards me... encloses me... surrounds me... My eyelids flutter. It's morning and I wake up with a big grin. Yes, yesterday this dream came true. A school of dolphins and I in the middle. Craziness! I stretch my limbs comfortably, bathe in this unbelievable feeling a little longer. Then my head turns towards the window and my first sight is the sea. It smiles azure blue towards my bed. Full of energy I swing myself out of bed. Breakfast is waiting and with it the reef and a new day. Who knows what gift nature has in store for me today?
