We had six dives over 3 days and enjoyed it a lot. We also did the Nitrox and Wreck diving specialty course. The wreck Afonso is impressive and you can nicely enter and dive inside. Other dive sites with very nice rock formations. All dives were 25-30m, so we used Nitrox all the time. The team is very professional and friendly, the facilities good (incl warm showers) and all is well organized. The location in a seaside hotel is cool (impressive views) and very practical as you have a parking (very cheap) and can use the terrace cafeteria with the neoprene left on during the surface interval. We can recommend this diving center very much.

A great experience by Wilfred, Ralf, Paolo and Miguel. All very professional, thorough and helpful whether assisting with kit, briefing or guiding. I did 3 x 30 metre dives on the Alfonso Cerquiera - a Corvette sunk 3 years ago as an artificial reef, now with lots of fishlife and soft corals in attendance, so great for photographers. Swim throughs are easy and safe although a torch is recommended (remember the waterproof lighter! ;) ) I have been diving over 30 years and have over 800 dives experience as a BS-AC 3* instructor, so I know the difference between good and bad dive schools, and these are up there with the best. Kit is all good quality, from basic suits to computers and I recommend them wholeheartedly. Thanks for 3 great dives guys, and hopefully, I'll be back next year on my next Pestana hotel holiday.

Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone at Madeira Divepoint for another excellent diving holiday. This was our 5th diving holiday with them & everyone made us feel welcome & did their best to ensure that we had a really great holiday. We keep coming back to this dive centre because they are very safe divers & they all work hard to ensure that their customers have a great experience. They have all the equipment that you need available for hire & it is all in very good condition. For those who have the required qualification, nitrox is available. During our previous holidays the dive centre wasn't overly busy due to Covid but this time they were very busy, especially in the mornings. The staff were out in force to ensure that everyone had all the kit that they needed & to lend a hand wherever necessary. Getting everyone kitted up for both shore & boat dives was a major task but they are well organised & everything is done with a smile. We were there for 2 weeks & we had a good variety of dives. They offer diving for everyone from complete beginners upwards. I would have no hesitation in recommending Madeira Divepoint & we will definitely be going back.
