I am happy to see how committed theses divers are to create an amazing diving experience! They are passionate about what they do, and are very kind and original people. Andre Alcantara in particular is a very charismatic character, that adds to the experience. You have the feeling of having both a great diving experience, and a genuine rapport with... More

Frank, the owner tries everything so you can go Diving with the Mobilas and the blue sharks. He offers an alterative program if the weather is too bad to go diving (tours, rental car,...). He refunds the dives that you couldn't make. Remarkable ! Extremely nice and cooperative staff

As I promised André (the nice guy at Pico-Sport's divecentre, who takes care of the whole smooth operation), I will put some words on this site, mostly to let other divers know about our experiences. In short they we're pretty good! We're two very spoilt divers, diving for ages all around the world, and we particularly loved the laid back,... More

We spent two weeks on Pico to experience big fish. This was offered to us in full measure. The criticism that I find here in part, is not justified. If you want to have boring dives: go to Hurghada. No toilet on board, ...... how awful !!! NO: If you want luxury holiday, make beach vacation in St. Tropez! "Went... More

Very friendly staff, good equipment, well guided diving. Go for the shark dive and the manta's ! One remark: the toilet on the big boat should be repaired.

Went diving with Pico Sports. An 8 hour trip with no toilet for 10 people on the boat. The dive master (1 DM for 8 divers) did not prioritise safety at all - made us all go under the boat in a fair current. The boat hit my head 3 times. Went down real fast to 42 meters without checking... More

We did advanced courses, and Martin Steiner was really a fantastic teacher. The dives are generally good, with lots of different (big) fish and animals to see.The long trips to do shark diving and to look at Mobulas are somewhat of a chance ticket. We actually did see Mobulas (like ghosts coming out of the blue), but the sharks never... More
