Directions to Subnauta Diving Centre
Subnauta is an accredited dive centre providing a range of services to explore the unique Algarve coastline with availability of specialist technical equipment.
Operated by divers for divers, the Subnauta Dive Centre provides diving experiences for all ages and levels as well as certified courses. The team of professional diving instructors have several years of technical and recreational experience between them and there are a wide variety of courses on offer including night diving and instruction in underwater photography as well as internationally recognised qualifications to improve knowledge and technique.
The Subnauta Dive Centre aims to stimulate diving tourism off the Algarve coast where conditions are ideal for this type of leisure activity. There are more than 50 dive sites in the area and a number of interesting historical wrecks that attract dive enthusiasts every year. Not least of which is the unique Ocean Revival underwater dive park .This innovative project involved the sinking of four decommissioned Portuguese navy ships off the coast between Praia da Rocha and Alvor, forming an amazing dive attraction and promoting the regeneration of natural reefs and biodiversity in the area. The four ships were successfully sunk over the past 12 months and can now be explored by divers - a unique and thrilling experience. Take a look at the video below.
The water is very clean and clear in the western Algarve (known as the Barlavento) with good visability and different types of environment to explore, including caves. Temperatures in the water can range from 17 to 19 celsius in the summer to 12 to 14 celsius in winter. The western coast can be more turbulent as it is more exposed to currents, requiring an experienced guide.
In the summer months there are daily dives and in winter from Wednesday to Sunday, all departing from the marina at Praia da Rocha near Portimão . Subnauta use their own fully-equipped boats that can quickly take you to your destination including 3 RIB speedboats and a 58-foot catamaran XU-NAUTA on which visitors can enjoy up to 3 nights out on a special ocean trip.
Daily dives usually depart at 8.30am in the morning and it is recommended that customers make a booking by phone to secure their place.
The diving school uses Aqualung, Apeks and DiveTec equipment among others with Suunto computers. Safety is always high on the agenda with Subnauta and all their equipment is regularly checked and CE certified. Quality control and assurance is one of their priorities.
