Any experience with scuba diving in Puerto Madryn?

I'd like to go scuba diving in Puerto Madryn (beginner). Does anyone recommend me any agency? Can tell me about the experience? I went to Red Sea and loved the experience. I may go to a course here in Brazil but it's not garanteed.

You can answer me in Spanish or Portuguese as well (though I wouldn't dare to use Portuñol).

The Puerto Madryn and the bay of Gulfo Nuevo is the diving capital of Argentina.

The water is clear and there is very little current.

As a beginner you would want to ask for the "baptismo". This is where you dive with an experianced teacher next to you the whole time. You will probably go with others diving for their first time and when you are not diving you can snorkel from the platform.

I suggest you do a google search for dive companies in Puerto Madryn. Contact the results and decide which one you are comfortable with.
