Angel is a skilled diver keen to pass on his knowledge and help his clients have the best experience. My 2 sons (14 & 16) qualified as advanced open water divers with Angel this summer. They have been lucky enough to have dived in many countries, but loved Angel's clear passion for diving and skill in teaching. They learned lots... More

Angel the owner instructor and was incredibly reassuring and supportive to my two grandsons Archie (9) and Charlie (14), on their recent dive. They provided great quality kit that was well maintained and gave confidence and comfort in the water. The briefing was thorough and continued from the classroom into the sea. Angel was supportive to the boys when under... More

My wife and I are experienced divers and have dived with Angel many times. An excellent instructor and we have recommended him to many of our family and friends and they weren't disappointed. Most of the diving is off the beach so will appeal to novices and beginners. At the moment he is based under the Hotel Almijara where he... More

The dive center is in the basement of the hotel almijara when you can get good deals when diving with scuba tropical. His main concern is the safety of his clients and it is great to dive with him. He really wants you to enjoy the experience.

We had a brilliant time diving with Angel. Him and John were really great guys - really friendly, funny and helpful, couldn't have asked for more. The dive itself was great too - a lot better than we expected actually! Highlights were seeing a seahorse, cuttlefish, and loads of beautiful nudibranchs! Plus lots of nice fish and anemones, and lots... More

I had seen the ratings of Scuba Tropical. What made me choose it were that all the feedbacks mentioned Angel, the owner and instructor. It was only the two of us. I was not very experienced (Open Water with 11 dives only) and told him my worries. He took care of every, every detail, but at the same time made... More

I cannot recommend this man enough. Angel. A genuinely nice man and a fantastic instructor. This is only the second time I have been scuba diving, the first time was 20 years ago. I also took my 13 year old daughter. We met angel at his office and then went for coffee. Then back for a bit of theory and... More

We have visited Spain twice and both times my teenage son and I have gone scuba diving. Last time we dived in Santa Pola with a guide who was very laid back. Angel was much more safety conscious, which can only be a good thing. He took us on two great dives and was friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. We saw... More

We met up with Angel, discussed our dive aspirations over coffee and booked to dive next day. He offers a dive package tailored to your needs, and genuinely wants you to enjoy your diving experience. A lovely person, an experienced diver. As our wetsuits were too thin for the current water temperatures, he insisted on kitting us out from his... More

Had four great dives with Angel, the happiest man you'll ever meet.  His English is very good (and I'm told his French is, as well); he also knows everyone in town, so he's a good resource if you're looking for recommendations for restaurants, local businesses, attractions, etc.  Angel has a good selection of dive equipment and wetsuits, and he thoroughly...
