Safety in Diving
Security is important to us at the Atalaia Diving Center, therefore some information for all our divers:
The next decompression chamber
The 12 people HAUX-decompression chamber is just 10 km away from our Dive Center, at the hospital in Funchal the capital of Madeira, and provides 24h emergency service.
Oxygen in the Dive Center and on our boats
We dispose of a Wenoll oxygen respirator with closed circulation and open demand-valve system.
A complete first aid set is stored in the Dive Center as well and on all boats. We also have a well sorted help-yourself pharmacy at hand to help with all the little complaints you could suffer from when diving.
