The team of any dive centre is the heart that beats within. We are very passionate about diving, the sea, and our customers. When you leave with a smile, we are happy and proud.
A homegrown Menorquian lad, born and bred next to the sea. Pepe started diving in Menorca before he started school. Most likely you will find him on the boat or under water. Alternatively in the classroom when teaching TDI Nitrox or Tec Courses. Connected to the sea like few others with a passion for the technical side of diving.
Pepe´s diving curriculum is vast and varied, with half a century of experience in the water. TDI and PADI Instructor, commercial boat captain, Trimix / Deep Diver, and Rebreather Instructor, gas blender….. there is more, but one can’t remember it all. Pepe has collaborated various years with the Italian ¨SUB-Magazine¨ and is a member of the prestigious PDD (Pfeiffer Deep Divers) group.
Making sure that our customers are well looked after from the beginning to the end, is Sylva. She worked at S´Algar Diving in 1999 and after some years living on the other side of the world returned to Menorca and Salgar Diving in 2009.
Trained as a CMAS and PADI Instructor, having worked in the Med, the Andaman Sea and the Red Sea you´ll find her now mainly in the shop, organising staff and daily proceedings, making sure everything is running smoothly. The only complaint you may hear from her is that these days she does not get to dive as often as she would like. Easily recognisable under water – due to a huge smile on her face.
A great example on so many levels. Lawrence came to us as a Divemaster Trainee in 2012. Today, seven seasons later, he is teaching our current DM Trainees himself. Who better to do it than somebody who not long ago went through the same himself? Lawrence is very popular with students and divers alike. His most significant fan, however, is a girl called Lima 🙂
As a PADI Instructor and a Commercial Boat Captain, you will find Lawrence pretty much everywhere. If he is not teaching courses or leading dives, he´ll be skippering the boat or helping Pepe in the workshop or Sylva in the dive centre. Useful on many levels – just don’t give him any paperwork…
His positive energy, dedication, and passion are tangible.
And there are many more team members, that during the summer season, form part of this extended family, called Salgar Diving.
We are experienced, multilingual, dedicated, passionate, fun and gorgeous people all in all. But – so might be others elsewhere as well. So why Salgar Diving? What sets us apart from anybody else?
To start with, Salgar Diving really is located in a very privileged position.
The dive centre sits right at waters edge in the bay of S’ Algar, in the south-east corner of Menorca. With a big swimming pool to the right, the sea in front and the quay to the left, we have everything a dive centre might need or want on our doorstep.
Perfect for teaching courses and try dives as we can use the pool and the bay for confined water training and go off on one of our dive boats for the open water part. All within a few metres. Very safe and accessible for all ages, the very young and the very….err… and adults alike.
Between us, we speak Spanish, Menorquian, English (ok, you get that elsewhere in Menorca too… ) and adding to the mix Italian, French, German and Czech.
Our main dive boat, ¨While You´re Down There¨ (Zum Zum) is a very comfortable and easily accessible boat. Spacious deck with plenty of room to move or even dance if you wish, easy low access into the water with a (not so) giant stride and a comfortable long ladder allowing you to come back onto the boat without hassle. With a maximum of 10 divers on board at any one time, this makes for a pleasant experience above and under the water.
¨While You’re Down There¨ is accessible to divers with mobility difficulties, with plenty of room for a wheelchair as well.
We use our 7,5m RIB ¨Boris´ for Boat Excursions, Snorkelling Excursions and of course for scuba diving. The powerful Boris will take us to the slightly further away situated dive sites in no time at all.
We are safety-minded, with all the permissions in place, following local laws and regulations. Our rental dive equipment – mainly Scubapro – is recent and well maintained. We dive in small dive groups and take your preferences always into consideration. Whatever you may need, we´ll go the extra mile for you.
The extra fun at Salgar Diving
As if the diving was not enough, we will enhance your excursion with visits to secluded beaches or a Whale and Dolphin-watching tour between the dives……… Soz, that´s a lie.
Any special request? We’ll be happy to make your stay unforgettable!
