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

My sons and I signed up for open water diver and advanced open water diver courses. The centre is ideally placed right on the marina and is well stocked with every size kit that you might need. Two ribs and a lot of enthusiastic staff meant that we could be accommodated at the same time. The advanced course in one... More

Booked this trip with 5 other friends. We were set to leave the shop at 14:00 but due to a scuba trip getting back later than expected, we didn't leave until 14:50. Not a huge problem. Everyone assisting us with our suits, flippers, and masks were extremely helpful and friendly. Once in the water, I had some trouble with a... More

Decided to do a dive on my second last day. The costs were ok for a five star Padi centre, at 80 Euros for two dives with me having my own fins, mask, wetsuit and computer. 5 Euros were for the optional insurance, as I hadn't taken dive cover for this holiday. I was told to arrive at the shop... More

Very friendly and helpful staff in a modern dive shop situated in the Marina in Lagos. There was ample parking adjacent to the shop and the dive boat was only a few yards walk. There are plenty of interesting dive sites nearby and they are only a few mins away in their high speed dive boat.

Went diving with dive time recently and overall it was great experience. Hadn't been diving for over a year and it took a while to feel comfortable under the water but Allehandro made me feel at ease and was very encouraging. Only downside was the visibility which wasn't great but the dive centre can't be blamed for that!
