Diving Baptism in Albufeira

Enjoy your first scuba diving experience in one Portugal's underwater paradises


Tour Description

Imagine standing at the edge of the Algarve coastline, the sun casting a golden hue on the azure waters. You’re about to embark on an adventure that transcends the ordinary—a baptism into the underwater realm. This isn’t just a mere dive; it’s an initiation into a secret world teeming with life, mystery, and wonder.

Scuba diving in the Algarve offers an unforgettable experience for divers of all levels, from complete beginners to seasoned professionals.

The Diving Baptism is your first experience with scuba diving, in a controlled environment and always accompanied by an instructor.
You will have a theory class, a pool lesson and a sea dive, where you will have the opportunity to observe a reef and the marine fauna and flora of this area of the Algarve. You will dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters, with an approximate duration of 30 minutes, always in the company of instructors

After checking in for the activity , you will be accompanied to the classroom where you will have to fill out an RTCW form and the respective medical questionnaire, international standard for the activity. In the theory lesson you will learn what the practice of diving consists of, the use of the equipment and the basic safety exercises that you will have to perform in the pool lesson.

After the theory lesson, you will proceed to the area where the indoor pool is located and the facilities where we provide all your equipment, for the pool lesson and sea dive.

In the pool, your instructor will demonstrate how to perform the essential safety exercises:

  • Recovery and cleaning of the regulator.
  • Partial cleaning of your diving mask.
  • Buoyancy.
  • Air sharing.

These exercises are mandatory, and you cannot do the sea dive without successfully completing them.

After this class you will embark for the sea dive. After a short boat trip along the coast, you will arrive at the dive site, on a natural reef. With the help of the team, you will enter the water with the instructor who will guide you in the sea dive, always with all the attention and security (2 students per instructor).

At the end of this dive, you will return to the centre, equipped with hot showers. At the centre you will receive an official SSI certification valid for 6 months, to dive up to 12 meters, accompanied by a professional. You can also get credits for an Open Water diving course.


Activity requirements and conditions:

  • For safety reasons, pregnant women and children under 10 years of age and 1.40m in height are not allowed in the activity.
