Buzios Divers are amazing. One of the best experiences I’ve had. I don’t speak Portuguese but the staff were excellent and communicated perfectly so I felt safe and confident as we explored the crystal clear waters of the marine reserve, swimming with dozens of beautiful, gentle sea turtles. I think this trip has given me a diving addiction. Muito Obrigado!

I booked two dives by Buziosdivers in February 2020. Luis Alberto da Camino is an excellent instructor who takes care of his dive customers. Doesn’t matter which diver certificate somebody have. His office in the center of Búzios is small but fine. Here he organized the paperwork and explained me the dive location, the boat trip incl. eating and drinking. He answered of all my questions. He is very seriously and likes his job as diver. His boat isn’t small, has a toilet on board and everything is clean. The dive equipment is very good. Nothing was broken. His guys on board were always a big help for every diver. After the trip you will get a dive video and fotos.
Very good dive school. Good work Luis!

Languages: Portugueses, English and Spanish

What you can see: soft and hard corals, sting rays, many turtles, morey eels, seahorses and more. Sometimes it’s possible to see dolphins and whale sharks.

Best regards Christoph and Girlane

Its a good diving school. The professionals are patient and keep you calm to dive the first time, all the staff was kind and attentive. They speak English and Spanish very well. In the diving area we saw many fish, turtles, starfish. I advise you to pay when you have confirmed the dive date, because diving does not happen in bad weather conditions, this can frustrate your trip.

Everything from booking to the actual diving is very well organized with sufficient personal attention. I didn't feel one second unsafe and instructors know exactly where to be for the most stunning views underneath the water surface. Possibility to get nice coverage by foto's and/or videos of your diving experience.

I had a great time diving with the Búzios Divers. They provided all the equipment which was new and well taken care of. I completed 2 dives and saw tons of turtles and a Morey eel. On the way back home we saw a whale and a pod of dolphins. Luis was a friendly and helpful diver master. They had someone on the boat to speak English. I would certainly recommend them.

The good parts: they accommodated a bunch of newbs, were relatively on time, and we got to see turtles and eels.

The bad parts: the boat and the conditions were terrible. Seriously, the boat was spewing diesel exhaust out the side which came onto the deck. The waves were such that I actually got seasick, and you couldn't see more than 3 metres in the water. It didn't help that the instructor was actually pushing people around under water, grabbing plants, and handling the wildlife - something I thought you weren't supposed to do.

Bottom line: I can't recommend these guys. You'll probably get to dive, but it won't be great. Go to Arraial do Cabo or Cabo Frio instead. Or just go to Praia Fernandes and snorkel. Búzios has better snorkelling than diving anyway.

Thank you for your evaluation , as certified diver you should know that you should not touch the animals and the viaibilidade and navigation depend on the weather conditions , as you explained in the shop one day prior to departure. Búzios Divers
