This centre is excellent. Great people good divemasters. Regarding dives, when you plan diving here remember about strong currents.
Lots of morays, stone fishes, crayfishes, fireworms, great caves, unfortunatelly not a single big animal. Maybe november is not a right time.
Groups of 8 - 12 divers + dm.

Judging by our two dives and one snorkeling trip, Cape Verde may not have the most exciting underwater flora and fauna in the world, but the staff of Cabo Verde Diving is definitely very professional and friendly and knows how to take care of divers of all levels. I would especially like to point out Gois, a most helpful and attentive divemaster - thank you!

If you're spoiled like us, having to rinse the equipment yourself after diving might come as a slightly unpleasant surprise, but it doesn't diminish the overall positive impression.

Last week we enjoyed our third diving holiday in Cape Verde. As before, we called upon Cabo Verde Diving for our diving trips.
They are a very professional and friendly team who take excellent care of their guests and equipment. Safety checks are always performed, transportation to the dive sites goes fast, and the dive sites are picked with care.
Furthermore, we were able to complete our Padi advanced open water with the help of Leo, Ilson and Kush. We enjoyed the Diver Propulsion Vehicle-sessions very much and learned a lot more about our buoyancy.
A well deserved thank you, and no doubt until next time!

Dived Jamaica and Greece and this was the best centre I've visited so far. Hendrick & Josie and the rest of the team really friendly, professional, relaxed and helpful.
PADI certified, but didn't have my card and hadn't dived for 3 years so a morning refresh session was the way forward in the hotel pool before the afternoon dive, the hotel was right next to the dive centre. Josie did a great job getting me back in the swing of things.
Well organised for the dive, a short trip to Santa Maria pier where the boat picked us all up with no stress. There is a double dive team for certified and students or new divers. Equipment, checks, set up and dive briefing all good.
Dive was excellent, water about 28, small wreck at Farol Baixo then following 4 coral ledges over to Farol Fundo down to 16m. Visibility was good. Marine life was plentiful, lucky to see a decent sized turtle, huge trumpet fish, ray, rainbow and lots of shoals/schools close up.
Cutting it short, went back the next day and dived a different location, just as good.
Planning next years trip back.
Few huge hotels being built and just opening next to the dive centre so hopefully the centre will invest and expand to be able to cope with increased demand and still keep the high levels of service, safety and no stress. Thanks CVD
