At the begining of August I joined a diving trip guided by Filip. Together with Neil we dived at the Smugglers' Beach next to Carvoeiro. From the first meeting at Algarve Divexperience, the support to find and transport the appropriate equipment, to the professional handling and the kind contact I highly enjoyed my time at the Algarve Divexperience. The dive... More

I booked a dive experience for my boyfriend as a surprise when we visited the Algarve. When I told him at the airport about his surprise he was over the moon and very excited to go diving. On the day we turned up at the beautiful hotel where the dive experience is situated and oh my! The views were out... More

Two different dives, both very good with friendly helpful and professional guides.Could not complete the two dive package in one day due to visibility degrading below safe level. No problem to return later in the week for a second dive . Staff inspired confidence. Only reason for not 5 stars is that some of the kit is a bit old,... More

Absolutely brilliant day for my son on his first ever scuba diving session. Totally professional and very friendly. Postponed from the initial scheduled session due to poor conditions but the wait was well worth it. Can't speak highly enough about these guys; they have to be the best dive school in Portugal?

Hi Billy/Mr. Billy and Filipe. This is Mae Claire (the short girl you taught today along with Sean - my dad - and Emma - my twin sister). This dive shop is so kind and understanding - their approach to teaching beginners how to dive is impeccable and well organized. Both the instructors I worked with couldn't have been more... More

Me and my wife did a dive from the shore with this dive center. Everything was perfect and the team very very friendly. Billy borrowed me a special mask to support my go pro camera and we could see a lot of see life. Very recommendable! Hope to see you again next year.
