Our opinion on the Subnauta Dive Center:
Subnauta in the province of the Algarve in Portugal, is a dive center full of drive, ambition and above all, passion. This PADI 5* Dive Center is best known for its involvement in the creation of the Revival Marine Park in 2012 close to Portimao. With approval and support from the local authorities, Subnauta were able to sink 4 Portuguese Navy ships in order to create artificial reefs. This region makes for a paradise for wreck lovers with one war ship measuring up to 102m long! The wrecks here are also accessible to new divers.
As active marine conservationists, Subnauta frequently organise beach clean ups and have partnered with a neighbouring University of Biology. They offer biological friendly dives as well as archaeological dives. One of their seven instructors works for the Nautical Archelogical Society and regularly guides divers wishing to explore some of the local treasures such as a thirteenth century french galleon wreck! Underwater photography equipment can be rented from the staff and there are many different activities available like sunset dives, 1- 3 day catamaran cruises and dolphin swimming!
A full range of PADI Courses are available and will be taught by one of the teams many professional instuctors from Discover Scuba Diving up to professional level such as Divemaster or Instructor! Their philosophy is to ensure divers become confident, skilled divers whilst ensuring all standards and safety requirements are adhered to. The Subnauta staff are friendly, flexible, never short of a smile and above all, professional. Team Tribloo full approves and recommends this dive center!
