      Great dive centre
      Lovely people who helped decertify my son whose PADI registration had not been completed by another dive centre last year. Super friendly and helpful. Lovely dives in the reserve. Would recommend them to anyone.

      Good dive but big company offering dozens of dives a day. Little chaotic and not many English speaking staff
      I had a nice dive with Rene and 4 other tourists. When I came there in the morning there were many people there to dive, so when I collected my stuff there was no one offering to help with the size and it was a little chaotic. Could be better organised - especially when someone is new at this place. The diving equipment (BCD and tank) was prepared and ready for me. Once we where on the boat it was more quiet and I could enjoy diving. It was a pitty that not everyone spoke English so I had to get my information from different people (my divemaster could not speak English).

      We recommand it!
      The team was very welcoming, and had given us good recommandations on the best day to do the activity so we could enjoy ourselves, and we did! we were able to do the activity in all autonomy although always under the teacher’s close watch. The + was the French speaking teacher, who was nice enough to take videos of us under the water and send them to us, as we forgot our equipment. Nous avons passé un très bon moment!

      Excellent diving facility
      An amazing experience, from booking to diving. My husband took my children, son aged 11 and daughter 10 on a try dive. I was a bit nervous about them doing this but needn’t have been. Said did an amazingly informative and funny brief for us all teaching the equipment and put my kids (and me!) at ease. Two instructors, one for my two kids and one for my husband (due to depth limitations). My son dived to his max 6 metres and is addicted, my daughter managed over 2 metres. In fact they had such fun they went again! Can’t thank Said, Miles and the team enough. The drone footage taken on the second dive was just the icing on the cake! Thank you so much 😃

      This is the company to dive with in Menorca, the staff are great, the equipment well maintained and they always dive in the nature reserve so there are plenty of things to see as well as the fish.

      First time with this dive school, great choice!!
      My son and I are advanced divers, and wanted to dive multiple sites. We certainly got it with this school. Great friendly staff, well maintained equipment, all in good condition. We were made welcome from the moment we went in and booked our 6 dives. Rib boat entry on all dives, which is always fun. Thanks guys!! Paul & Oliver

      Best experience!
      I booked the PADI course for beginners and it was an great experience. Me and my husband had a good Diving experience in Búzios (Brasil) however were in some way traumatized by a dive from Dubrovinik (Croatia) due to terrible service and questionable safety and equipment. I decided to give it a last try when I went to Menorca, and my instructor (Endika) was amazing every step of the way, he had patience to explain, kept me calm during the exercises and made everything as good as it could be. The final result is that I finally really enjoyed Diving, saw amazing nature and am now certified. My husband also liked it so much that he intends to do the course as well in our next holidays. We went from giving up on Diving to actually wanting to do it more often. Everybody there is really nice and I could not have asked for a better instructor. Thank you!

      A variety of dives
      Having dived with Sébastien and David several times over the years, it was good to be back again diving in the Fornells Marine Reserve. The team has increased to include Nathalie, Xavi and Mark. Diving is from a RIB which has a fin ladder. Everyone assembles their own gear, but the team is around to check and to help out. Nitrox was available with a good system for checking and recording the levels. Most people took their own bottles and BCDs across to the boat but Xavi carried mine before and after each dive as I had explained that I found that difficult. Weights and weight belts are stored on the boat and the guides give advice about probable weights needed by each person. The guides also help to gear up on the boat. Dive briefings are thorough with explanations of the possible currents, what we would see, as well as all safety points and revision of signs and rules of the dive. Divers are divided into groups dependant mainly on experience. Dives usually last around fifty minutes plus a safety stop. On return to the boat, you remove your BCD and attach it to the boat then climb the fin ladder, with or without fins. Chilled water is available on the RIB after the dive. After the first dive, usually the boat returns to Fornells for new tanks and a loo break, though for more distant dives or in rougher weather, extra tanks are taken and the boat stays out for the Surface Interval. The systems for washing and drying gear work well and are really clear. You can leave your gear safely overnight. There are showers and a separate changing area for women. The equipment for hire seems to be good quality and in good order. Wifi is available. In early September the sea was 26 degrees...very warm after diving at Iles Medes (22 degrees) and Banyuls (21 degrees). We did a good variety of dives including a few caves, some sea grass dives and lots with fabulous topography - swimthroughs, gullies, giant boulders. We saw lots of grouper and bream, barracuda and jacks, sea bass, wrasse, octopus, scorpion fish and a surprising number of nudibranchs. The briefings for the cave dives were thorough and really helpful so that everyone had a good experience. The whole team were really friendly and helpful. They were generous with their advice, especially for newer divers, and concerned that everyone had a great time. We got a little lost on a sea grass dive and the guide apologised at the end of the dive.

      Brilliant we'll run dive school
      Decided on the spur of the moment to do a PADI open water course. Had been diving on several occasions previously in Mauritius, Seychelles, UK and Thailand. This five centre topped them all - well run, great fun, professional, safe but so friendly. English perfect - course well run. Dives were brilliant - especially the last one, great scenery and so many fish. Can't wait to go back there and dive again!! Cannot recommend this place highly enough

    Mes enfants ont fait leurs baptêmes ensembles, ils sont très contents. Ils étaient accompagnés d'un formateur francophone pour deux.
    J'ai plongée aussi en exploration N1, le briefing était en français, les palanquées très bien organisées. Nous étions douze sur le bateaux encadrement inclus et donc pas d'embouteillage à l'immersion.
    Le matériel est très bien entretenu et de très bonne qualité.(neuf)
    Je recommande vivement ce centre.
    Merci à toute l'équipe.

    Para mí pareja que ya tenía experiencia iba más tranquilo, yo en mi primer contacto sentía muchos nervios. La aproximación con la Zodiac un puntazo. El trato de nuestro guía/instructor René excelente, es quien a parte de ver a mi pareja tranquilo me ha acompañado en todo momento. 12 metros conseguidos! Lo hemos pasado genial y sin duda repartiríamos. Mil gracias

    J'ai eu le plaisir de réaliser deux plongées en famille, accompagné de deux adolescents très peu expérimentés. Dès notre arrivée, nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par une équipe professionnelle et francophone. Avant chaque plongée, nous avons bénéficié d'un rappel complet des consignes de sécurité.
    Le centre de plongée est remarquablement bien équipé en matériel de plongée, Ces deux plongées se sont très bien déroulées. Les moniteurs ont été vigilants et bienveillants en nous montrant la faune sous-marine
    Un grand merci à Alexia pour son accueil chaleureux, son sourire et sa bonne humeur, et aussi « Shavi », ainsi qu'à toute l'équipe qui a contribué à rendre notre expérience inoubliable.
    Si vous avez l'occasion de passer à Fornells et que vous voulez faire une plongée dans un cadre agréable et en tout sécurité Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés.

    Madame, Je me permet de répondre à votre commentaire. Vous étiez le compagnon de plongée de votre fille, je m'étonne donc que vous ne vous en soyez pas aperçue à ce moment là. Nous avons gardé un contact visuel et permanent sur chacun des plongeurs du groupe (à savoir 7 plongeurs pour deux instructeurs). Pour le surplus, je joins réponse adressée au commentaire de votre fille ... Bien sincèrement, Philippe Bonjour, Je vous remercie de votre commentaire ce qui me permet d’y répondre et de fixer les choses telles qu’elles se sont déroulées. Votre maman a pris contact avec notre centre de plongée pour organiser une plongée pour les 4 membres de votre famille. Deux d’entre vous sont certifiés, et les deux autres non, (plongées non validées par votre club). Votre maman a insisté sur le fait que les deux non certifiés avaient déjà effectués des plongées dans d’autres centres de plongées à des profondeurs de plus de 20 mètres (ce qui m’étonne fortement !!! ceci étant elles étaient bien consignées dans leurs carnets de plongées), et qu’elle ne souhaitait pas qu’ils réalisent un baptême, car, compte tenu de leurs expériences ils pouvaient réaliser la même plongée que vous. J’ai refusé en argumentant que sans certification ils ne pouvaient pas plonger de manière autonome, mais seulement faire un baptême de plongée. Pour vous être agréable, nous avons choisi un site de plongée qui permet de faire le même parcours en respectant les profondeurs maximums de chacun des groupes. Contrôlant vos carnets de plongées, il est exact que vous démontriez une expérience de plongée enregistrant plus de 40 plongées. Nous étions sur le bateau 5 plongeurs certifiés, deux baptêmes (votre fils et mari) et deux instructeurs (moi-même et David). Nous avons fait un briefing sur le site de plongée, rappelant les signes de plongées, comment annoncer la pression de sa bouteille et les palanquées en précisant que chacun des binômes doit être attentif à son compagnon de plongée et règles de sécurités générales. Nous vous avions assigné vous et votre maman comme binôme. Nous vous avons présenté qui était le guide, mais également informés que le second Instructeur (c’est-à-dire moi) suivrait le groupe de plongée à moindre profondeur (maximum 12 mètres) avec les deux baptêmes, et qu’en cas de problèmes de consommation, ceux qui ont consommés le plus reviendrait avec moi (voir plus bas) A 15 minutes de plongée, nous étions tous au même endroit sur les 12 mètres et le guide de plongée à demandé la pression de bouteille de chacun. Vous et votre maman aviez annoncés 150 bars. Une autre personne ayant 110 bars m’a rejoint pour revenir au bateau plus vite que les autres. Je ne comprends pas qu’en moins de 15 minutes votre maman ait terminé avec 30 bars ! Bien que sur le retour, nous nous suivions à des profondeurs différentes, je peux vous assurer que, contrôlant mon groupe, j’avais toujours un œil sur vous et votre maman et le reste des plongeurs. Nous regrettons que vous soyez remontée rapidement. Permettez-moi cependant de m’étonner quand vous mentionnez : « ai réussi à redescendre seule ». En effet, comme nous l’avions mentionné ci-dessus, nous avions composé les binômes et le vôtre était votre maman!, et il est étrange que celle-ci ne ce soit rendu compte de rien…. En ce qui concerne les plombs, je vous ai conseillé de prendre un kilo en plus… En début de plongée j’ai pu constater personnellement que ni votre mère ni vous, aviez éprouvé de difficultés à descendre sur les 5 premiers mètres. L’incident que vous évoqué c’est déroulé à la fin de la plongée puisque nous étions proche du bateau. Il est incorrect de dire que je ne me suis pas soucié des évènements. Nous en avons discuté longuement sur le bateau, mais j’ai constaté que votre maman se braquait à ce sujet. Il est également incorrect de soutenir que le guide ne s’est jamais soucié de vous. Il a contrôlé le groupe durant toute la plongée. Aucun des autres plongeurs ne s’est plaint du manque d’attention du guide ou que celui-ci allait vite… Je rappelle que vous êtes plongeuse certifiée, ayant plongé récemment, que votre formation vous a appris à gérer la flottabilité, l’importance de plonger avec un ordinateur et le système de compagnon de plongée… Nous regrettons que votre expérience n’a pas été satisfaisante à votre goût. Je retiens cependant que votre père et votre frère ont quant à eux appréciés leurs plongées en pouvant observer des mérous, barracudas et corbs… Bien cordialement Philippe

    No llegamos ni a bajar un poco al fondo. Nos costaba respirar por la boquilla de la bombona de aire y descartamos la opción. El guía bajo con una tercera persona y nosotros nos quedamos a nadar junto a la barca hasta que subió.
    Fue un desinterés absoluto por parte del guía y de la propia empresa, la cual echo la responsabilidad a la empresa que lo había comercializado todo, o sea, a Menorcaporuntubo, y desentendiendose ellos de todo.
    No recomendamos esta actividad, al menos aquí.

    We zijn met twee volwassenen en drie kinderen (10-11-14) gaan snorkelen. Onze gids Einhoa heeft ons heel duidelijk en rustig uitgelegd wat de bedoeling was. We deelden de boot met een groep scuba divers. We voeren naar een baai met een onderwaternatuurgebied en we konden een uur snorkelen. Het was prachtig! De assistentie van Einhoa en haar collega’s was geweldig en het snorkelmateriaal was erg goed!

    Un club extraordinaire ! Nous avons offert une double plongée de découverte à nos enfants de 10 et 13 ans et tout s est déroulé à merveille !!! Une équipe formidable (et francophone) , souriante, à l'écoute, qui prend son temps pour expliquer, rassurer... Des locaux très propre, un équipement nickel. Vraiment on a rien à redire !! De passage à Minorque pour les vacances on ne regrette pas du tout notre choix. Allez y les yeux fermés! 😉
