The staff at Dive Time were great and very patient with me. It was my first time diving. They made me feel like one of the team. The training you receive is of such a high standard that its makes it almost risk free. The locations of the dives were really good as well. I Would recommend this company to... More

As a first dive since I got certified, I couldn't hope for a better place! The staff is absolutely professionnal, from the very beginning to the end. They make you feel at ease and you can follow all the steps of the process. Thanks again for such a great day pals, take care and keep up your great work!

Sorry for the not-too-good rating, but though I think the experience of some of the Instructors is awesome and there is great friendly and competent staff around (Luis was perfect!), on the organizatory level a lot could be better. It seems, that every morning they are surprised they are going to dive, everything is very chaotic, stressed out, sometimes the... More

Absolutely a professional dive center, definitely worth their 5* from PADI. Unfortunately I got seasick after the first dive, but I experienced a great care for their equipment and careful choice of locations. Absolutely worth their money!

Some prices are slightly cheaper than at other local diving spots, e.g. 400 euros for the complete Open Water PADI scheme, where some other places charge 400+. Do bear in mind though that some other places in Europe charge <300 euros for the same but it being right on the sea justifies it. The place is run too casually. We... More

Having not dived for over 4 years, but with lots of hours underwater I was happy to take a shallow 12 metre dive as a refresher. Chris the owner was very professional asking the right questions and did not try to push me into anything. On the dive Tom the guide/instructor was attentive and obviously briefed on my status, and... More

Many thanks to @chris, @Andre, @Ash and all the other staff supporting the nice trip. See you soon. Price and service is good. Very funny but... More

I did my Emergency First Response Course with Dive Time in May and was the only participant in the course with Chris. I expected they maybe rush through the course but the opposite was the case. Everything was discussed very detailed, I was always encouraged to ask questions and we dicussed a lot of the medical aspects as well. I... More

This was our first dives after completing our PADI OW in Thailand and was a good gauge of the level provided by another company... What a disappointment!! I will try and keep it short and points as i remember... -We were told the day before the dive that we would be diving a wreck that was okay for OW certification.... More

We decided to try snorkelling as a family for the first time on the last day of our holiday in Portugal. We'd contacted them via facebook to check arrangements, and on the day we arrived and started getting kitted out. Andre explained everything, and checked everything fit correctly, then we went out on the boat. Andre was fantastic with the... More
