Amazing Experience

20.05.2019 by William S report

I have never been scuba diving before, but have always wanted to try. Went with option B of the "Try Scuba Diving" and it was perfect! Our instructor walked us through every step and answered all the questions we had. He did an excellent job making sure we were comfortable in the water and guiding us to locations to see wildlife!

Costa Brava Diving

20.05.2019 by Balakrishna report

This was my first ever scuba diving experience at sea and I could not have asked for a better instructor than Guido. It was an incredible experience diving with the BCN team. They explained the science and logic behind each and every aspect of diving. They are very meticulous about the dives when it comes to safety at the same time passionate about the open waters. If you are apprehensive about your first dive, I would recommend BCN any day of the week. I am glad that I did my dive with BCN because, now I'm hooked. I will definitely be coming back here. Cheers guys \m/

"The ultimate experience of first dive

13.05.2019 by Mitul Nanda report

This has been an absolutely amazing experience, the trainers were friendly, and had great knowledge about what they were doing. They were in no rush and provided complete training before boat dive. The underwater experience was amazing and would like to visit them again to perform a deeper dive and explore the sea world.

Excellent Experience for New Divers

01.05.2019 by Chione Giacomarro report

We had a wonderful experience diving with BCN Diving! We are newly certified NAUI open water divers and this was our first experience in the ocean. Guido was our dive master and guide and did a wonderful job. We felt very comfortable with all the equipment, location, and process of diving. His English is perfect and we had no communication challenges. We opted for one shore dive and one boat dive from their location north of Barcelona on Costa Brava. The boat was much better than the shore, as there was a lot of sediment near the beach and lower visibility. It was also challenging to get into the water from the steep beach. Knowing what we know now, we would have booked 2 boat dives instead. All the necessary equipment was provided. My boots were a bit large (US womens size 7) and my husband was a bit squished in his 5mm wet suit (195cm tall) but we made it work. We dove at the end of April, so water temperature was 15 * C and pretty chilly. Guido let me borrow his gloves which made it more comfortable for me. The dive computers we rented worked great and we had no issues. Guido did his best to find marine life for us to see. I found an octopus, star fish, and a cuttlefish. There were numerous small and medium sized fish in the area and several nudibranches. It was not teeming with life, but I think that is a product of the area vs. the dive company.

Great First Dive Experience

18.04.2019 by Spencer Hickman report

My (31M) Girlfriend(30F) did our first ever dive with Guido from BCN, and it was as we could have hoped. He picked us up, we did a training briefing, pool dive, and then shore dive - recommended approach for first timers. He clearly loves to dive, but more importantly is very nice and loves to share his passion for diving with others without pushing people to hard or in any uncomfortable way. Coming from the US things are a bit more “buttoned up” which is fine, it’s just different and more relaxed in Spain - there was no effort spared when it came to safety, lessons, or actual dives. Law requires one instructor to 8 divers, but BCN gives one instructor to a max of two first time divers. The non-buttoned up but completely fine parts; getting picked up($30e) in a personal car (which we learned about in advance to be fair), going to the shop after being picked up just to get gear (it was on the way, but would have been preferred to not have to make that stop), the pool dive was in a community pool (which makes sense) but it seemed to be the first time BCN used those facilities / was figuring out locker situation on the fly. It all worked out extremely well. I am a big planner, and come from the US where things are more organized, so I believe it was a cultural thing, but overall it was an amazing experience. The only things that were actually negative, were purely mental components from both my GF and myself and in no way reflect BCNs excellent service. Hopefully this helps others though: my GF didn’t have interest at all to start, but ended up absolutely loving the pool dive, she was however not as interested in the shore dive as it can be difficult to get in and out of the water. So potentially consider a boat dive instead of shore, but for sure start with the pool. Myself, I struggled with breathing (a big component of this, I know) - this was purely a mental thing of needing to control my breath better through my mouth, without using my nose. If you’ve never gone before. I recommend practicing at home first, hold your nose and take breaths in and out of your mouth in a controlled fashion. You don’t want to waste lesson time figuring out something simple like that. I’m a runner and soccer player so all my life I’ve trained to breath nose and mouth, so this might have been harder for me than most, again this was purely my mental error and had nothing to do with BCN and the great experienced they offered.

Geniale Taucherfahrung !!!

14.03.2019 by Richie report

Als begeisterter Unterwasserfotograf hatte ich mein Equipment mit in den Urlaub genommen, um ein paar Schnappschüsse von der lebendigen Unterwasserwelt Tossa de Mar's zu machen. Ich beschloss, mir ein paar Privatstunden mit dem Leiter der Tauchschule BCN Diving, Albert , zu gönnen und wir fuhren die Costa Brava hoch. Mein Tauchbegleiter/Lehrer Albert war sehr geduldig und ließ mich etliche schöne Aufnahmen machen, blieb dabei immer wachsam und aufmerksam; ich fühlte mich in seiner Gegenwart sehr sicher und durch sein ausgezeichnetes Briefing vor dem Tauchgang auch sehr gut vorbereitet. Eine Taucherfahrung, die ich uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen kann !!!

They offered me a tailored AOWD

14.03.2019 by Susana Carpizo report

I got my AOWD with Albert and the BCN Diving team last summer. I had some doubts at the beginning about which specialties to undertake and since the first contact he has been kind and clear advising me. I finally got the Nitrox 40, Night and Limited Visibility, Deep Diving and Perfect Buoyancy courses. He tailored this pack especially for me because I wanted to travel to the Red Sea last winter. Without those specialties I would have been very limited; instead I have been enjoying everyone of the 22 dives that were scheduled during the life aboard trip. Thanks Albert we will surely meet again!

Nice diving and nicer people

06.03.2019 by Guido report

I've been diving with BCN Diving several times along the Costa Brava and I've always felt like at home. Albert and his team always put safety first but at the same time they make you feel very relaxed. The equipment and facilities are very good, reviewed every 6 months; briefings and debriefings are really exhaustive and I have always had the chance of diving with very nice divers, in groups matched up based on the divers' certification, so there was never big differences in level, skills, air consumption...If I had to dive in Barcelona and Costa Brava, I would definitely do it with BCN Diving.
