  • I had the pleasure of discovering the diving center "Haliotis Porto" in September 2018. I contacted the Center, a few weeks before, to organize my dives and I had the pleasant surprise to have an answer in French (the people of the Center speak also English). Given that the weather and the State of the sea in this region of Portugal can change really quickly, the Center advised me to contact them a week before my arrival so that one organizes my day of diving. Two days before the dive, the Center contacted me again to give me the details of the day, either a first dive on the wreck of the "Draga da Madalena" (20m max), and the second on the submarine "sub U-1277" (30m max). Regarding the Haliotis Porto Centre, we had an appointment at 7:45 am at the Center for a departure around 8.30 am-9am from the Marina. Great welcome from Marió, Luís and José. We were 3 divers/tourists, for 3 people from the Center; It was ideal. The Center shares the boat with another diving club, so the places are limited. What you also need to know is that the dives are often limited on weekends, because the guides, dive master have another job during the week. In terms of safety and the explanation of dive sites, I have rarely seen such competent people. Whether it is safety on the boat or during the dives (groups of maximum 3 people including the dive master for correct visibility and 2 divers for poor visibility), it was really perfect. Likewise, before each dive, a complete explanation of the site and its history, and an explanation of the dive plan could only reassure us and make sure that we felt in good hands. Material side, I came with my own equipment, but the Center offers the rental of equipment if necessary. At the end of the day (return around 14.30-15h), the divers have access to the showers and changing rooms of the Marina; which is really nice when you dive into a 14-16-degree water. To summarize, smiling, welcoming and ultra-professional people; Breathtaking dive sites in compliance with safety rules. I loved my experience with Haliotis Porto and it is sure that on my next trip around the corner I would go diving with Haliotis Porto. Thank you for this great day.

  • Excellent experience! If there's one thing I will repeat is snorkelling with this school and these instructors. They are highly qualified, friendly and fun. If you want to try diving, Haliotis is the school search!
