I did two dives which were both really good. I had not dived in over a year, Simon assigned an instructor to me (Nigel) and I was in great hands. Instructions were clear and precise all the checks were complete and professional. If I have the time I will definitely return to further my dive experience.

I spent a few days diving with the Simply Diving crew. Great team, professional set up and fun to dive with! I did some fun dives and the Depp Dive speciality. The sites selected were ideal, the crew looked after everything, and they even collected me from Torremolinos to div with them from their Marbella dive centre. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Can't wait to return.

I had the pleasant opportunity to obtain an open water diving certificate with Simply Diving. The owner, Simon is a really kind person and is very welcoming from the beginning. Because I am staying in Malaga for long-term Simon allowed me to plan my dives whenever it suited me best, which was great because it allowed me to be flexible. Sometimes the communication through email could have been a tad better but nothing else to comment on this. Nigel was the dive instructor and was very professional at what he was doing, and explained everything thoroughly and knew how to guide new divers perfectly. I can definitely recommend Simply Diving if you are looking to get certified, and even to just go diving because they offer everything you need with very kind guides.

I selected Simply Diving when visiting Malaga because of its reviews and the ability of its operators (and website) to speak English. After parking on a nearby street (the dive shop is located on the lower level of a strip mall away from the street) I was able to find the shop, but it is not the easiest to do. I also ended up getting a parking ticket after parking on the street not knowing there was a separate garage for people using the shops. From the moment I arrived, and throughout the time people were registering and getting their equipment sorted, the owner/operator was scolding people and hurrying them along warning everyone we were going to be late and run out of time. Another employee was taking a different guest out on a separate dive and was yelled at incessantly about how they weren't going to be back in time. We finally got underway and the owner piloted the boat out to the dive site. Once there he hurried everyone along and rushed us into the water telling us to move quickly the entire time. At this point I should have slowed down and gone at my own pace not allowing myself to be rushed. I can still be considered an amateur diver depending on who you compare me to, but I do have over 20 dives. In any case, I rushed and went as quickly as I could and descended faster than I should have. It made for an uncomfortable dive and an unpleasant trip overall. I regret using this dive center and would recommend anyone looking to dive in the Costa del Sol area to chose a different dive operator.

Just returned from completing my Open Water Referral course. A big thank you to all the guides and instructors (especially Nigel) for all their guidance and patience. The Dive Centre is well run and the staff do their best to look after you. I would consider going back in the Summer when the water is a bit warmer to see some different dive sites.
