Very professional and helpful instructors. Beautiful dive spots. I had a lovely day! It doesn't matter if you just want to do a discovery dive for the first time, a course or just dive because you are a scuba diver already. They offer it all.

We really enjoyed our 2 dives with elite dive center. The staff is really nice, took time to show us many things underwater and they took tie to explain to us many things about Brazil and its fauna. We didn't dive too deep but we didn't really need it as the ocean was nice to us and allowed us to see pretty much everything from about 10 meters deep.
Many different Fishes, tortles and ray, we got lucky!

Nice time with you guys, thanks again

We were two friends from Denmark visiting Ilha Grande in July 2017.

We found Elite Diving Center after visiting two others that did not seem so professional.

I did a total of 6 dives through 3 days - my friend acquired his open water diving licens.

It was an amazing experience - the staff is fantastic, professional and funny. Really nice guys to spend 3 days with!

I highly recommend this diving center!

Many thanks to the team at Elite Dive Center. A friend of mine and I booked in for two boat dives. The staff were quick and efficient in getting our payment, wetsuit and bootie sizes right. This left us just to arrive in the morning for our dives. The boat operation was smoothly run with comfortable seating, a toilet and space on the foredeck to sunbathe. The dives were well managed with the divemaster and instructors making them really fun as well as feeling safe throughout. Back on the boat the snacks were generous and the assistance most helpful in removing and stowing our gear. Even though it rained on the boat ride back to Abraao we left with big smiles on our faces.

I was recommended here not just from the good reviews on TA but from every local I met on the island. Then you know it's going to be good!

I am a solo traveller & I went to the shop in the evening after dinner to speak with the team. I managed to book myself onto a boat for the next day. Prices are average for the island. The boat is new & easily the best looking one in the marina for diving.

Equipment was all of a good standard & the usual drinks / snack packs were just right for the day trip.

Different levels of experience on the boat, didn't matter. Everyone had a good time. Deff recommend these guys.
