I went diving with Simply Diving in the month of April. The team will go out of their way to ensure your comfort and safety. I will definitely try to go back to the team at Simply Diving to complete more levels if I get a chance to go back to Spain.

Hi Paul,

Thanks very much for the comments.

The team said you were a very easy student to teach so would be more than happy to see you again sometime soon for more training!

Take care back there in Ireland. Or wherever in the world you have been sent to! Please keep in touch and make sure you swing by and see us again here in Spain.

Cheers,

Simon

“Very pleasant diving!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

Went diving with Simply diving after not having dived for more than six months. Had some beginner problems with my ears, gearing up, buoyancy control. The crew (Simon and Paco were with us) couldn't have been more considerate, helping with putting on and taking off the gear, checking whether everything was ok, adapting the descent on the second dive to give more time to equalize, giving hints and tips past the contents of the course. I took the wreck specialty course and I really appreciated the fact we went through all the topics and exercises. We had lost some time due to unforeseen circumstances but we continued the training until late in the day to make sure we 'd covered everything. You really feel they want you to learn and not just consider you as business. Prices for diving trips may seem higher than you can find elsewhere, but the trips are really full day trips with at least 2 dives and a complete briefing and a lot of pointers to help you enjoy the dive more. At Tarifa they made sure the boat was not overcrowded for great comfort. Two excellent days of diving (Tarifa and Gibraltar). Highly recommended when you're in the region!

“Simply Wonderful ”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I spent a week with Simply Diving, and it was simply wonderful. Simon and his team are very professional and knowledgeable, and they took us to some fantastic sites for very memorable dives.

I'd have no hesitation diving with them again, and I'm already planning my next trip back, just to dive with them again.

“Experience of a life time”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

I began my scuba diving experience in the Summer of 2012 with Simply Diving as a teenager and have continued to dive with them for nearly two years. I now have my Open Water Divers card and I'm looking forward to continuing to use SD to work my way through other courses. I was given a very warm and friendly welcome by Simon and all the staff at the centre from the minute i walked through the doors. I felt a bit nervous to begin with when entering the water but the staff made me feel comfortable an at ease when descending. All and all it was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to people looking for a new and exciting hobbie. Even the instructors who were not involved in my group went out of their way in between dives to make sure that not only me but everyone was having the experience of a life time.Simon had a special nack of making sure everyone had fun but also maintained a very high level of safety.See you soon!!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Nici!

You may have been a little nervous, but at least you weren't as nervous as your Dad watching you go in!!

Thanks for spending time with us underwater. And hurry back, it's been far too long already...

All the very best,
