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 own stock. The marine life we saw was the best we've seen in the Mediterranean. We can't recommend him and Scuba Tropical more highly. Angel is not just a dive guide, he's a nice person, a friend and an invaluable source of information about the local area, where to dine, how to sort out a parking ticket .... !
You won't be sorry, if you choose to dive with Scuba Tropical. Hasta luego!

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 knows the bay and the habits of its fish and octopi.  He gave me lots of good pointers, and helped me with some frustrating problems I'd had with buoyancy and even my swimming "posture"—these are now things of the past!  Above all, he's concerned with the safety of his clients, and tailors the dives to their levels of experience and comfort.  His dive shop is in the basement of the Hotel Almijara, and he can help you get a very good rate with them if you're planning to spend a few days in La Herradura.  All things considered, a superb experience with Scuba Tropical!

Rob, Angel and the rest of the team really made me feel safe. They kitted me out with the best diving gear that fitted well and I had a great day exploring Marina beach and Fraggle Rock. I'd highly recommend this friendly and professional team when visiting this area, which has many great dive sites.

I had a great time diving in La Herradura. Visibility was great and the sea was ok at 20 degrees. We saw octopus, conga and moray eels amongst other things. Angel, the instuctor, was very professional and great company afterwards. Would recommend.
