Scuba Diving in Algarve
There’s nothing to compare with breathing underwater! Due to its geographical position, the Algarve coast is one of the best locations in Europe for scuba diving, with a coastline providing many different types of scenery. Apart from the many fish species you will be able to find old wrecks and reefs to explore and fascinating caves.
Experienced instructors are to be found at all licensed diving schools and modern equipment is for hire. These schools are usually staffed by several nationalities so communication should not be difficult. Diving is made under the strict regulations as associated with the necessary safety aspect of the sport.
There’s an incredible variety of marine life waiting to be discovered in the waters off the Algarve coast. The sea conditions enable diving practically all year round, but the best times are Autumn and Spring, when the waters are quiet and the temperatures milder. The waters, rich in sea life, offer endless topics of interest for observation, investigation or photography, even in conditions where visibility is limited. Discover a spectacular underwater world with boat dives, shore dives, wreck dives, night dives and more.
We are a group of divers with several cumulated years of recreational and technical diving, seamanship and business management experience. We have chosen the Algarve, in particular the western part, to develop our practice due to the excellent diving conditions, quality of infrastructure and local governmen's dynamic promotion of tourism in the region. In addition to our desire to serve local divers, it is also our objective to promote all year around tourism, taking advantage of the outstanding diving conditions for the most part of the year to attract Northern European divers.
At Algarve Divexperience we have explored the coastline for many years and are happy to share our expertise, guiding you to the most interesting local dive locations. As a 5-star PADI Gold Palm Resort, we cater for all levels of diver. We specialise in providing first-timers who are interested in giving the sport a try with a safe, fun, informal introduction to the world of Scuba Diving, as well as in running PADI-recognised diving courses up to Divemaster level, in Portuguese, English and German.
