Brilliant scuba diving experience!!!!!

These guys were awesome today. I booked this for my wife and 11 year old daughter and I think it was a superb experience from start to finish. The staff and instructors are extremely knowledgeable, patient and courteous. Their equipment was in very good condition, and everything was very tidy and clean. They took my wife and daughter through all the training steps in a local swimming pool, and spent well over one hour with them ensuring they we sure that all safety aspects were covered. Once satisfied we were taken out to the ocean, where my wife and daughter got to dive with their instructor over 10 metres to the bottom of the sea and have a super experience of being close up to sea-life you normally only see on the TV or at sea-life centres!!!! Overall I cannot fault any aspect of the experience, and it was a life changing time for my daughter who is, now more than ever, determined to work in the marine biology sector. So a BIG thank you to all involved, and we are extremely happy to say that we can thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for such an activity on the Algarve. Well done!!!!!!

Overdue review!

I thought I had left a review for this amazing dive centre following my visit and have only just noticed that it didn't post. I had to put that right. I was in Portugal with a few friends, I don't play golf and so whilst they went off for the day I looked for a local dive operator that I could link in with. What a find! The guys were so friendly and the rental gear the best I have ever rented. Then there was the dive. A great man made reef off the coast with some up close and personal experience with big moray eels but for me the best was yet to come, one the way back in we had saved enough dive time for a quick visit 5m down to a bunch of sea horses - absolutely magical. I have been diving for over 15 years and never seen them. Made my day.

Enjoyable Diving experience

Open waters dive centre is the only dive centre in the Quarteria/Vilamoura district - and has been in the area for some time. I did two days of diving in August 2018. The dive centre is well equipped on one of the side streets in Quarteria - their boat (small but absolutely fine) is moored at the marina (Quarteira not Vilamoura!) with a small transfer time. The dives I did were pretty good - perhaps better than I imagined. We saw eels (congar and moray), Octopus and squid on one dive - with a decent amount of std fish to boot. I would recommend the dive centre - they are a very friendly and accommodating bunch. I felt perfectly safe with them despite the low visibility.
