I found Scuba Ibiza over the internet. From first contact to doing all the paperwork until booking and payment everything was handled very professionally. The dive center is inviting and has everything you need. I felt welcome from the moment I entered this place. Equipment is in good condition and everything is sanitized and cleaned after every dive. All dives are done with a boat ride out to the various sites. The boat is spacious and works well. At the end of a dive, the crew takes care of all things - helping with taking of the gear and storing everything. Would clearly recommend and will surely dive with them again if I ever get back to Ibiza. Thanks to the team 😄

My wife is working in Valencia this summer and wanted to spend a few days in Ibiza while I visit her. She suggested that we dive one day while we were there. I am an advanced technical diver but as this was not a dive trip I did not want to bring my dive gear all the way to Europe. I needed a full service shop that could provide all the necessary gear. My wife is a certified diver but it had been many years since she dived. SCUBA IBIZA was able to accommodate us. I booked the two morning dives with nitrox for myself and the afternoon beginner dive with air for me and my wife. I brought my own mask and dive computer, everything else I rented from SCUBA IBIZA. The gear was good quality. We took the BCs, regulators, and weigh belts to the boat (a very short walk) to set up the scuba units. When I got there they had supplied air cylinders for me instead of nitrox. It’s likely something was lost in translation when I did my booking. After I brought the problem to their attention, the switched my air cylinders for nitrox cylinders. We analyzed my cylinders and signed the nitrox log. I was happy to see the dive master calibrate the analyzer before we tested my cylinders. Very professional. I expected to be charged for an upgrade to Nitrox afterward but SCUBA IBIZA did not charge me any extra. Class act. We then went back to the shop to put on our wetsuits and boots. They had shade and water available to avoid overheating. They also had baskets stored in a secure area for your personal belongings and 6 shower stalls for showering after the dive. This is a very nice touch. I wish I had known about it ahead of time. A boat briefing was given in Spanish which I understood well enough since I have been on many boats. As we arrived at the site, a thorough site briefing was given in Spanish, leaders and buddy pairs were assigned. Since I wanted to be sure I understood the important parts I asked to have the high points repeated in English. One of the crew gave me a private briefing. Both dives were around small islands, starting deeper and then ascending during the dive. Runtime was limited to no more than 50 minutes. Nitrox divers were paired with nitrox divers and air divers with air divers. The boat was full but there were enough staff that there were only 6 divers in my group which was another pleasant surprise. I was dreading a large “follow the leader” experience. I thought small groups each with a leader was a good compromise. I’m a scuba instructor with more than 1000 dives but it wasn’t annoying to follow the dive leader in those dives. My dive leader was Vidal, who is an excellent and knowledgeable diver. On the afternoon dive, my wife, who had not dived in many years was having trouble descending. The seas had picked up and she was in unfamiliar equipment. She was a little panicky. The dive leader stayed with her and assisted her for as long as it took for her to calm down. She ended up having to abort the dive because she couldn’t clear one of her ears. The dive master took her back to the boat. He told me I could go ahead and begin my dive. Near the mooring line I ran into my leader from the morning, I guess I must have passed a diving test. He decided to show me some special things from the history of the island. I followed him and was astonished to see some Roman era pottery and a drain tube from a Roman merchant ship. I’m an avaid wreck diver in America but the oldest shipwreck artifacts I had seen are 150 years old. These were 2000 year old artifacts. Amazing. I’d have to say the diving conditions near Ibiza are more difficult than the Caribbean but less difficult than where I am from (North Carolina) so it might not be the best place for your first dives but once you have a few dives under your belt it’s definitely worth diving in Ibiza and SCUBA IBIZA is definitely a first rate operation. In summary: SCUBA IBIZA was quick to change out my incorrect cylinders. They assumed it was their mistake and did not blame me. SCUBA IBIZA was very professional and by the book in how they handle Nitrox. SCUBA IBIZA gave me a private briefing in English when I wasn’t sure I understood the Spanish briefing. SCUBA IBIZA divided the divers into small groups for the tours of the dive sites SCUBA IBIZA was very attentive toward my wife’s large needs as a beginner. SCUBA IBIZA allowed me see some very special things that I would never see anywhere else than a museum.

As I wanted to plan my dives before arriving in Ibiza, I reached out to SCUBA IBIZA by e-mail and got a friendly answer within a few hours, which already made a good first impression. Their emails were clear, thorough and answered all of my questions. The dive center itself is located in the marina port, close to both Talamanca and the Dalt Vila. I didn't dive any of their rental equipment, but it looked good to me and I'd I'd have definitely rented from them if I didn't bring my own gear. Every diver can use a box to store his/her personal belongings, but they can't be locked. While we went diving, I simply left my wallet and phone in the box and I didn't have to worry about it, really. SCUBA IBIZA has - from what I can tell - one dive boat (Longimanus II) and all the emergency equipment on board, which is great. Also, on every dive, they'd have a tank at roughly 5m, just in case someone ran out of gas. The boat is also equipped with radio and a phone. I did 9 dives with them and the boat was never crowded, which was great. All of the dive guides are really good, especially Vidal, who was more than kind enough to share a few tips and tricks with me, both from a recreational and technical diving point of view. Not only is he a great diver, but also passionate about guiding and helping other fellow divers. He is a joy to be around with, always with great sense of humour. I also did quite a few dives with David, who's also really good. All of the instructors/dive guides do thorough briefings and explain all the emergency procedures before every dive, even when the group consisted of divers, who have been diving with the center for a few days. They do their best to offer a safe and fun diving experience. Everyone at SCUBA IBIZA seems passionate about diving, which made the experience even better. Diving in the morning usually looks like this: Meeting time is at 9.00 am at the dive center. There, you carry your equipment to the boat, where all the tanks are ready and filled with either Air or Nitrox (EAN29). Before assembling your gear on the boat, one instructor analyses the gas with you standing right next to your tanks and checking the results. After that, they label your tanks with your name, oxygen percentage and date. To cut a long story short, I don't have any negative things to review - every aspect of the dive center is very good and I'd love to come back again, hopefully with a dive or two on the Don Pedro wreck :)

Friendly, knowledgable staff. Good quality equipment (all Mares as far as I could tell); good dive boat (could have done with a cool box of water for post diving, but that’s my only gripe). Will be considering them as a excellent option to do the advanced open water course next year. Thank you!

Very friendly and well organised centre. Staff were helpful on the boat getting gear on and off. Well set up boat and dive centre. Water cold so used a 5mm suit and a shorty. Great fish life! Recommended.
