Madeira´s exposed location in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and it´s steep, rocky coast provides divers with a guarantee of good diving sites. There are a wide range of diving centers and schools. One that we especially recommend is led by a German gentleman by the name of Stefan Meier, the"Manta Diving Center" (the only one in the underwater national park). A base of multiple divers, this center was named the "best of the Atlantic" . To Add to this, the center not only adheres to PADI standards, but also CMAS training is offered.
