Amazing Dive Instructor/Dive Master

17.09.2017 by Eric owens report

He took care to make sure i was doing everything correctly as I set up the equipment. When we were in the water he was making sure I was checking my air and keeping good buoyancy.We saw a starfish that had fallen of it rock and was upside down in the sand, Daniel carefully placed it back on the rock before he continued. Would recommend to all planning a dive in Portugal if it was close.

Top Instructor ! 5 stars

I did my OWD with Daniel and I really recommend him. He explains (and asks !!) everything to you over and over until you do all the procedures with confidence. One of the best I ever met.

Imersões em segurança

30.06.2017 by André Afonso report

Conheci o Daniel como guia de mergulho e assim partilhamos algumas imersões. Se a segurança é fator importante, a diversão nunca faltou, assim como a sensação de mergulhos bem orientados. Sempre um prazer mergulhar com um excelente guia!

    Muito obrigado André pelo teu review! O mergulho para mim, embora seja um desporto como qualquer outro, a segurança tal como em qualquer outro desporto não pode falhar. O guiar os mergulhos... bem, isso vem com a prática junto com a diversão!

Great refresh dive and pool session

29.06.2017 by José Mendes report

After more than 6 months without diving, I met Daniel for a refresh dive. Not only we went for that dive as well as in the end we went for a pool session to address some drills I was having some trouble on handling. It was great as that made made me feel confortable underwater again.

Awesome diving instructor!!!

25.06.2017 by Lourenço Branco report

During my Open Water certification, Daniel was a very comprehensive instructor. At the time, e knew I had never dived before, so he was very calm, understanding and patient. He really wanted to make sure that I would understand everything step by step, whether in theoretical or practical sessions. I had a really great time learning with him and I seriously recommend him to whoever decides to start his/her Open Water certification.
