“Fantastic dive centre and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

An absolutely fantastic dive centre in an ideal location. The staff are unfailingly friendly and professsional with an attention to detail that is second to none. We had no problem at all arranging diving for exactly the days we wanted (despite these starting in January!) and the whole experience was great fun. All of the team at the centre spared no effort in making sure the diving was first class and this included helping sort out problems with a hire car that saved us tons of effort. A big thank you to all - we will be back as soon as possible. If you are thinking of doing a diving course then head here. We watched training in process at close hand and it was excellent!

“Diving Club with well deserved award”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Greenwich Diving won the 2011 best diving center in Spain, and after 2 weeks of courses and diving excursions we know why.

The team is professional and service oriented and made sure we had a great experience throughout the stay. They have new equipment of high quality and offer a wide range of excursions in the area, and I believe they greet every octopus by first name- they know the coast and the sights really well and make sure they accomodate every dive depending on weather, wind, visibility, to make the most of every minute you spend under water.

On top of this, everyone is personable and fun and make you feel valued as a customer.

Absolutely recommend this club if you are thinking of either taking courses or exploring the Costa Blanca coast.

“Professional Outfit, well organised, accomodating, easy to deal with”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2011

I am a qualified OPEN WATER Scuba Diver and was looking for some where to go diving and came across GREENWICH Diving

It is located in the Marina just north of Altea, very easy to find took me about 25 minutes to drive from Benidorm Centre. I booked a 2 dive morning trip, arrive at 9am, sort out all the gear and got back about 1.30. Think I paid about 70 Euro's for this, which is the going rate in spain. They do some good deals for couple / multiple dives / look on the web site.

Equipment was fine, everything worked like clockwork and I ended up in a mixed group of about 8 divers, 3 of us experienced and the remaining 5 doing their open water qualifications. We were allocated one instructor who shadowed the 3 of us, I has some issues with buoyancy, convinced it was the BCD, but anyway it was soon sorted after a few minutes - instructor was very good.

Diving sites were much better than I expected, lots of fish to see, Octapus etc.., we went to about 12m on the first dive and not so deep, maybe 8m on the second dive. Both dives lasted nearly one hour - so good value. Inbetween water and melon was provided for for the break between dives.

I was the only UK based native english speaker so I could not get very involved in the banter on the boat, as majority were Spanish This was the luck of the draw and no particular issue for me.

Overall, I would recommend Greenich - no issues.
