While Agadir is taking off as a beach holiday resort, scuba diving here is relatively undeveloped with only one diving school operating. Considering conditions along the coast this isn’t surprising as there’s little to explore and dangerous currents.
Those on holiday in Agadir who feel the need to practice their scuba should head to Taff’s Diving resort. They offer diving instruction to the uninitiated which involves a classroom lesson, followed by pool training prior to the ocean dive.
The main attraction of diving here is the ocean life where it’s possible to see octopus, eels and sting rays among various types of fish. Sadly Agadir Scuba Diving isn’t located close to any reefs or wrecks, so you are limited in what’s on offer for exploring to the sea bed.
Taff’s Diving Resort is located in Taghazoute which is a 20 minute drive away from Agadir. Taxis from the city will be able to take you here. Those on holiday here who want to dive should consider venturing out to a different resort for better facilities.
The harbour at Agadir contains many catamarans and sailing boats that take tourists out on sailing expeditions, many of which will happily facilitate scuba diving if you have your own equipment. These are relatively easy to charter, but it’s best to arrange them in advance and ensure you take someone who knows the local waters.
Agadir itself is a great place to go on a family beach holiday given its great temperature year round and international airport providing inexpensive flights in from Europe. It’s popular for other activities such as surfing in Imesouane bay and there’s many surfing schools. There’s plenty of restaurants and bars catering for the tourist crowd.
