We completed 2 days of diving with this outfit. The first day was on the Ocean Revival dive site which has a few naval ships on the bottom of the ocean. The decks are around 23-25 metres deep and visibility in the green atlantic ocean is limited, but it is a great dive experience not to be missed. The second... More

We had a really nice diving trip for beginners in September 2015. Our diving teacher was Rod, who is a kind a nice guy. Our diving trip started of with a theory lesson, then first experience in the pool. (everything at the Hotel Dom Joao II, Poolside) In the afternoon we were taken to Portimao Marina, and then to the... More

Firstly, it's cold water diving. In August the Atlantic was 13c and we were in wet suits. If you've got a drysuit - take it. The centre will collect you from your hotel take you to the dive centre to kit you out, then off to the marina where you kit up and go off on the rib. We dived... More

We made contact with this dive outfit before we came out to the Algarve and the replies to our queries came back fast, and extremely 'can-do' positive. Nothing seems too much trouble and this great attitude feeds over into the actual diving just as much. We struggled to find the hotel which is their base of operations but that was... More

I made four dives on two separate days while being close to Portimao. The first two dives were wreck dives in the Ocean Revival Park and the other two dives were shallow reef dives. I strongly recommend the wreck dives over reef dives. The Ocean Revival Park consist of several huge wrecks that were intentionally sunk close to the shore... More

I can't speak highly enough of Exclusive Divers. The dive masters are top notch and passionate about scuba diving. I hadn't planned to scuba dive on my trip to Europe but I was in for a big surprise. I didn't bring any scuba gear so I rented everything and I was pleased with the scuba unit. After diving in the... More

Exclusive Divers Algarve is the type of Dive Operation built by professional divers that still very much have a passion for safe diving. They are prompt on both arriving, diving, and returning home and this is enabled through their cool and calm practices along with efficient teamwork. They do not skip the formalities or the necessaries right down to advising... More

I did a couple of dives with Exclusive Divers and they are really fantastic. They handle everything very professionally to the highest standards but I also had such a fun experience with them! The equipment still looks brand new which I was happy about. I would recommend them to anyone who is planning a trip to the Algarve the two... More
