I wanted to try diving and I finally did it... I did my diving with Carl and it was excellent. They took care of all the details from the picking up to drive me home. The diving site was in Almuñecar (Granada), a lovely place to visit. I had the opportunity of seeing the sea wildlife and also enjoy and... More

Had 7 dives over 3 days...thoroughly enjoyed it..and here's why...Very safety conscious. Very attentive to details. And above all, great sense of humour. You will laugh esp if vinney is your dive master....we saw dolphins around the boat...twice....perhaps I got lucky...water visibility was poor due to turbulent waters but crew and experience made up for it....

Both my son and I really enjoyed two days with Simply Diving. Two dives at Marina del Este with Davide and Esther who both proved to be great guides and instructors. In particular myself with Esther who gave me some great tips with my buoyancy. Two other great dives with Simon and his team from his boat in Marbella. Big... More

We're glad you appreciated the tips on buoyancy too. We're always happy to advise on how to polish dive skills, for whoever requests it! Hope to see you both very soon... More

We visited Simply Diving Marbella for two mid week dives. Overall the experience was 'okay', however a few things weren't quite perfect. Positives: + Fit us in at short notice (day before) + Good quality equipment (Scuba Pro) + English speaking (run by English) Negatives - The visibility was too poor and we shouldn't have gone diving, 1-2 metres wasn't...

Hi Nick, We're obviously very sad to read your comments and only wish you had given us a chance to discuss your dissatisfaction with you. Perhaps we could have offered you something to put things right? But you didn't raise one single issue with anyone here at the dive centre, choosing instead to scurry away and send us a surprise...

Chose the Discover Scuba package for myself and my 16 year old daughter. They were very thorough and very informative. The journey to the marine reserve was quite lengthy but the team took care of all the kit lifting. We had one instructor for each pair of novice divers and our instructor, David, held my daughters hand throughout the whole... More

Many thanks for your kind words Chris. We're so pleased you appreciated the staff's attention under the water and that you were well prepared for your dive. As a rule, we always inform the divers who may have time to spare at the dive site where the beach is, the facilities, the bars and marina etc. and at what time... More

Last week we went diving in Marbellas with Simply Diving. Ahead of the visit we had requested which dives would suit us, since we are owd on less than 30 dives, and didn't want to go further than we should, but looked for animals and beautiful sites. Hence the planned trip was changed, since we either had misunderstood or it... More

Hi Lotte, We're very sorry you had a negative experience of diving with Simply Diving. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to clarify a few aspects of your day that appear to not have gone according to plan. We agree wholeheartedly that a dive centre should be concerned principally with safety, hence your request for diving in Tarifa or... More

I was a diving instructor who has been dry or too long. I have dived all over the world in warm waters mostly. Went diving for 2 days on a family trip. The first day the van was a little late but it's Spain so it's to be expected. They did call about 10-15 minutes later to let me know... More

Many thanks for your great review divegirl! Vinny and the team are as pleased as punch to hear how you appreciated the enthusiasm for our local marine life.

I had 2 dives and both of them were amazing. Simon (the owner and expert) proposed me a refresh with beginners since I did not dive during a while. Then, we went from the shore for a shallow dive but it made me comfortable. Instructors were concerned about safety, they all listen very carefully to our concerns. For the 2nd... More
