We had a great day with Victor and Pedro! Diving with the boat at Baixa da Cruz and Pedradeira. Professional organisation, relaxed and friendly atmosphere and alround a great day! Would recommend them and would love to cone back some day.

The people at the diving school were very friendly. Also the instructor was good at his job and very social and friendly. This made it a great experience for us.

I completed the Advanced Open Water course with Haliotsis 20 years after obtaining my Open Water Certification. I am glad to have chosen Haliotsis. As a result, 3 out of 5 Adventure Dives were One-on-One with my instructor, and I had just one couple with me during the other 2 dives. There were also 6 people doing their Open Water Diver certification with a separate instructor, Victor. Most were boat dives, but on my last dive, we drove in the van to a shore dive from the bay in Machico (steps down to a giant stride entry-- no surf zone to navigate). For that last dive, (3 Marias) there was someone doing a Try-A-Dive, but again, he had a separate instructor, Pedro. It was a truly personal service. I feel very lucky.

My instructor, Joana, was generous with her time. She showed infinite patience and went out of her way to make sure I got the most out of each dive. When other divers couldn't equalise, we tried again. She even arranged it so that I could get all the learning and knowledge from a planned dive, which we had run out of opportunities to do as a standalone dive. She made it work. She made it so that each dive fulfilled the requirements to be counted as one of 5 needed for certification. The primary objective was paramount: Safety First.

Haliotsis will put your schedule before their own convenience. It’s apparent that Victor and his staff are all happy working together. It’s also obvious that they enjoy chatting with the divers. They all spoke English fluently.

I appreciated how forthcoming they were with their information. I didn’t need to ask many questions, because the online information was comprehensive. When I did email, they replied promptly. Everything was as advertised or as we arranged, where I had requested something different.

A nice feature of their website is that they layout their dive sites and what you might see at each location. I chose Fish Identification as one of my Adventure Dives, so when I saw their highlighted fish, I recognised them, which was really fun (sorry to be a geek). This knowledge enhanced all of my dives. Ordinarily I don't care about fancy websites, but I really liked this aspect of theirs. Joana organised a print out with pictures of the fish in the area, which is a lovely souvenir. I also have the memories of the two Octopus Vulgaris she pointed out on our first two dives (a big brown one at Quinta do Lorde and a baby iridescent pink one at Pedradeira).

I got surprisingly cold. Water temperature in February was a fairly consistent 19C. All the equipment was included in the price of the course. I was given a 7mm wetsuit, with hooded vest underneath, and boots, but I was still more than shivering. Gloves did help, on the one dive where I remembered them! Hot drinks provided by Rodrigo once back on the boat were greatly appreciated. He remembered my preferred tea and was generous with it. The pastry was nice too. Rodrigo went beyond call of duty a number of times. I felt really looked after. He changed my tanks over when I was too seasick to do so myself and literally helped me don equipment, subtly and kindly correcting errors I had made. I think everybody on that boat relieved me of some heavy lifting at some point or another. If the other divers read this, then thank you.

Sometimes I see people mention equipment in reviews. It was inevitable and normal that there were times when an item needed a small repair or replacement with a spare on the boat or before we left the dive centre. This was dealt with immediately and without question, when inspecting and preparing gear. It was apparent that the equipment was monitored and maintained and safe.

The dive sites we went to were beautiful, with an abundance of wildlife, but we did not go to Garajau Marine Reserve. My priority was superior quality training with instructors devoted to a personal service and who communicated well from the outset. If I have the good fortune to return to Madeira, I would like to return to Ponta das Rosas with Haliotsis. I would go back to that Lava Wall in a heartbeat. What I saw was astonishingly beautiful, and I didn’t even see all of it, due to the two other divers being unable to equalize.

On that note, to all Potential Advanced Open Water students, regardless of where you do your Adventure Dives: Please consider completing as many online eLearning modules as possible beforehand. You may need the capacity to adapt your dives. I was relieved to be able to count an aborted Deep Dive as something else in order to complete the Advanced Open Water certification. PLUS I STILL got all the training I always would have gotten. In other words, Joana gave me the knowledge for 6 dives, which took place over 5 actual dives. Haliotsis provided my requested dives and more. I am delighted that Joana and Victor and the whole team did this for me. I learned even more than I expected.

I feel very lucky to have dived with Haliotsis Madeira, who are a model of safety and adaptability. They are lighthearted people to hang out with, whilst being utterly focused on each individual diver.

Husband and I took the open water course at Haliotis. They were super professional and friendly since our first contact.
Our instructor was Vitor, and I have no words to thank him for his patience and to praise him on his skills. Friendly, professional, calm and extremely knowledgeable. The course could be challenging at times, but Vitor made sure we took our time and practiced as many times as needed until we felt comfortable.
The facilities and equipment were all in order too and we felt super safe at the open water dives.
If you're considering a PADI course or a Dive, I could not recommend Haliotis more. The team will make sure you have the most amazing experience.
Obrigada Vitor e Joana, esperamos voltar em breve ;)

My wife and I did 2 shore dives with Haliotis, first one in Quinta do Lord and the other one in Pedra da Eira. Amazing dives, that really surprised us. The water visibility was pretty good, although it was probably the worst of the year. A lot of different fish, including barracudas, spider crabs, giant anemones and a lot more. Vitor was very knowledgeable of the sites and was very helpful and patient. Cant wait to schedule another trip to Madeira with Haliotis :)
