Met all the crew at the location and they got us fitted into our suits and wet shoes with no issues, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We then all hopped into car to amadores beach where we then got dressed and headed to sea, the girl taking us explained everything for us very well and let us get accustomed to the snorkel in the sea without making us feel rushed. She then took us out for just under an hour around the bay where we spotted lots of fish, sea urchins and even an octopus! Was absolutely beautiful and would highly recommend it. Breathing in the snorkel does take some getting used to but all you need is five minutes to figure out how to breath properly and realise you’ll not drown under the water if you’re sensible and not panicking! Would absolutely do it again and would urge everyone to give it a go. You’re in safe, friendly, knowledgeable hands with the crew and I couldn’t fault a single thing.

Great tour on a small yacht. There were only 10 people on the boat and we felt like we were alone. Great alternative for trips full of people where you have to fight for the seat on the deck. We can highly recommend it.

Atlantis dive Centre is just superb all round , from the booking to the information given to the instructors. I loved it and my 12 year old was in heaven. Thank you all.

Such a glorious day. We saw Whales and Dolphins (literally metres away from the boat) and had a lovely swim in a beautiful location by the cliffs

Really great experience. My six year old son loved it as did we well organised and saw lots.
