Direct access to 3 infinity pools and to the ocean takes away all the hassle of transporting equipment. We also have specially trained life guards that have experience in SCUBA Diving that improves safety of all divers that use our centre.

For those who are new to scuba diving, there are professionals there to guide you and teach you the basics by doing a try dive which consists of a short session in the pool before exploring the house reef, which is the underwater area in front of the hotel.

Our house reef also provides an exciting dive for the certified diver without the need to travel by boat.  It is remarkable how many species you will see right on the hotel’s doorstep, not to mention the schools of fish that will surround you!

There are also courses available for those who want to get a certification to dive and other courses to extend already certified divers that want to take it to the next level.

Whatever your needs, Sealife Scuba Diving Centre is determined to make your holiday that extra bit special and memorable. And for those of you living and working in Madeira, we’re looking forward to being your home base for recreational scuba diving on the island!


My boys aged 12 &10 really loved their very first Scuba diving experience.
Thanks to their very friendly and patient instructors Alex&Michael for putting them at ease.
Their one to one diving experience is one they will treasure from their fabulous holiday in Maderia.
Best Regards.

I had a truly impressive experience thanks to Michael. I can wholeheartedly recommend the try-dive as an introduction to the exciting world of scuba. An amazing world has opened up to me.

Sealife Scuba Diving offers you the opportunity to discover different underwater worlds by boat.  Our boat dives include the renowned Garajau, natural reserve, where you can come face to face with a grouper (‘mero’ in Portuguese) amongst many other varieties of sealife including manta rays.  The size and graceful movement of the groupers has transformed the area into an international attraction.

This reserve, created in 1986, is on the south coast of Madeira, at the extreme east of Funchal Bay. It is a marine park that includes a strip running from the high tide line and into the sea to a depth of 50 metres.  Fishing activity is forbidden inside the park. Navigation is also highly controlled and only small boats are allowed to approach the beaches.

In addition, you can explore other locations such as T-Reef, Clube Naval, Reis Magos, Galo as well as wreck dives to Pronto and the Bowbelle, which is out at Madalena do Mar.
