Wherever they go, diving is always a number 1 priority for Hero and Wolverand and in Albufeira, the main and only dive school is Indigo Divers - check them out on As usual Clubflat left their mark with cards being left everywhere, including the sea bed. Diving in The Algarve isn't exactly exotic. The Atlantic ocean is quite dark with only 6-8 metres visibility and the sea was about 20-22 degrees, so the dives were really intermediate ones just above what you'd get in the UK. But every time you dive somewhere, it's always different and all good experience, especially when you were on a tiny boat about the same size as the one in the film Jaws! It's also the first time we've got kitted up in an underground car park! The two dives on the first day helped us get used to the conditions for the next day of diving. Diving with Hero and Wolverand was Divemaster Tiago and fellow Brit Clive. First dive was around 16m deep at a site called 'Bedra Do Alto' and the second dive at around 10m at a site called 'Bedra Da Oura'. Not loads to see down there so you need to look carefully.
