Comments I did two morning two tank dives in the Bay of Pollenca, Mallorca with Action Sports. We were on holiday in early August and the two dive centres in Puerto Pollenca were very busy. We had to wait a week before we could book three divers. If you are visiting at busy times, I suggest booking ahead. The diving itself is fairly typical Mediterranean, with rocky walls and caverns which allow some limited penetration. The bay itself can be a bit choppy and the diving was called off on at least two days we were there due to rough seas. There's not a huge amount of fish life. We did see nudibranchs, octopus, morays and schooling barracuda. On one dive we saw a really nice sea horse and a cuttle fish. This was not a diving holiday but if you want to do a bit of diving when on holiday it's pleasant. Action Sport have a small hard boat and a rib - both were busy but not over crowded. Be warned the standard tank size is 10ltr! They have 12 ltd so ask for those if you want them.
