Marco was great. Clear, informed briefing before a quick pool dive, followed by a dive on the house reef. Good equipment, good facilities and very friendly and competent dive instructor. I plan to go to Azul on my next trip to Madeira.

We went on a sea kayak tour with Marco along the beautiful coastline. He was super professional and enthusiastic, even though we're those annoying guests who are competitive paddlers at home! The trip was very relaxing, and the beauty of kayaking is that you get...More

Very easy and adaptable instructor . If you would like to start diving I suggest You ask Marko. He is good and flexible. But better still is fun. Try it and see.

Honestly, Ponta de San Lourenco (that´s the peninsula northeast of Madeira, paradise) is so beautiful that the diving experience you´d expect and deserve should be equally outstanding, right? Right. Thanks to Azul Diving this has become a reality. We did scuba and snorkeling, fabulous. They...More

Really enjoyed this activity, the staff were lovely, and the water was some of the clearest I've ever gone swimming in. Not as colourful or diverse as a tropical reef, but it's so clear it is still well worth doing.

Learned to launch, to paddle correctly and 3 different techniques for turning in 1 hour! Much more efficient than what I was doing by myself...

We hired a scooter for 20€/day to get there. It was great for exploring along the coast- Canical & Machico, and stopping for photos. Rent-a-scooter is just in downtown Funchal. Helmets and storage box included.
