Oh my days! On Tuesday 13th September Rhea Dive did a taster session at our pool complex, free of charge! So after the quick 10 minute taster, I booked us to go for a pool session and a sea session. On Monday 19th we were picked up from our hotel by Miguel and taken to the dive centre, here we... More

I have been diving a lot my self, now it was time for my son (11). The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The German dive instructor Uwe did a great job and was doing an extraordinary job with the kids. My son had some problems with a tooth and they even arranged a dentist appointment the same day!

My partner and I enjoyed our first diving experience whilst visiting Porto Santo and we're so glad we did. Both of us were taught the basics in the pool at a local hotel and were really pleased that Rhea appoint one instructor for every two customers. We spent some time at the centre and in the pool learning the basics... More

We were very looked after and whilst the boys enjoyed scuba experience, we enjoyed snorking. They do full snorking masks which makes the whole experience easier and more relaxing/enjoyable. It was very well organised and professional and would definitely recommend should anyone want to try either out. The lady that took the boys scuba diving was very experienced and knew... More

We did only 2 dives with Rhea Dive center, since our stay in Porto Santo was short, but they accommodated our needs and took us to shallower waters first - max. depth 18m, and then to the "Madeirense" wreck, around 30m depth. They briefed us properly and ensured we would make the most out of our dives. Thank you very... More
