Bruno and Suzi were great. Very well run dive operation, the guides were extremely knowledgeable and held a high standard of safety.
Opposite to the name of this agency they took us only on places with very poor life. Second one, on a lava rocks was a bit more interesting but still I expected something more. I was fed up with the dive-master when he said that his agency is not like "fast food" but during that day everything looked as very fast organized, at the last moment. Anyway, his assistent (Jose) was more friendly guy and thanks to him it was even more enjoyable.
I went diving with best spot for 2 weeks. Every day they were very nice, kind, helpful. The equipment is all good, good quality. They have almost all sizes. From very small to very big. The team is very lovely. I had my birthday in the second week I was there and they made it one to never forget. Went to dinner with them, I felt more like family, than that I was just a customer. Because I was diving so much, there wasn’t a way around that I had to do different sites more times, but they tried to plan new spots for me to see. A very big plus, that I haven’t seen anywhere before, is that the dive leaders are wearing bright colored t-shirts underwater, so that you know who the dive leader is. If there are 2 groups, one wears yellow and the other orange.
I think they are the only dive center who are every day diving, except for the days that the sea is to strong.
Best spot is a very well organized dive center, and I will definitely come back to best spot, and I recommend it to anyone who is planning to dive in the Azores!
Wish you all the best, Joren
Bruno and Susy were excellent guides. They told us everything must-to-know about diving as it was my first (try) dive. I really loved the experience so I'm sure I will try it again!
I dived with Best Spot for the Christmas Dive and I really enjoyed it as always! I also did the Advanced Open water dive course and they are awesome as instructors 😉
I dove with Best Spot in June...I had mixed up my days and incorrectly booked my dive on the 2nd instead of the 1st. Bruno was very accommodating despite my mix up, and I am extremely grateful he was able to fit us on the dive he had scheduled that day. It was rainy on the South side of the island and every other dive company had canceled their dives for the day, but Best Spot just drove us to the North side of the island where they have some boats and the weather was sunny and the water calm. I am used to diving in warm tropical water, so this was a bit chilly for me, but their rental equipment was in great condition and the hood kept me much warmer than anticipated. The group had everything from completely new divers to advanced divers, and the guides did a great job accommodating everyone. There wasn't much marine life on the dive, but the rock formations were pretty cool. I would recommend Best Spot to anyone looking to dive in the Azores.
Best Spot Azores is a small PADI Dive Center but with everything you need incluidng great staff.
Would go back as had a nice time.
I had forgotten how much I loved the sport. Bruno is very patient and let me get back in the water safely and made it a safe and all around amazing experience!
