This week we say farewell and congratulations to Tom and David.
Both now PADI Divemasters, David is off to work in Lanzarote for a few months before joining us again next year to complete an Instructor Development Course and become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instrucor!
Tom is staying a few more days on the island before returning to Germany and also looking to do his IDC in the future.
3 New PADI Advanced Open Water Divers on their way to becoming Divemasters, next stop PADI Rescue Diver!
Janos, Eamonn and Gled completed adventure dives in Night, Deep, Navigation, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Fish Identification on the course! Well done guys.
Volunteer dog walking, good for the body and soul.
Another happy troop that will sleep well tonight after some exercise.
Oh, and more puppy photos too.
DIVER DIVER, ARE YOU OK?!!
The gang off to do day 1 of their PADI Rescue Diver Course.
Whether assisting, teaching or taking part in the course, it’s always a very rewarding challenge.
And they’re off….. for a night dive!
Sunset walk down to the beach for some PADI Night Speciality and Adventure dives.
Just a regular evening as a Divemaster Intern!
Well done to Sam and Milena the Ray magnets!
Today they completed their course and became PADI Open Water Divers!!!
Enjoy your last few days on the island and welcome to the underwater world! Come back and dive with us soon!

A gorgeous day in the south learning the basics of freediving with our PADI Freediving Instructor and Platinum Course Director Kim.
Static and Dynamic Apnea, rescue skills and a thorough introduction into the amazing world of freediving.
…and a surprise visit from some mermaids!
Another successful outing with the pups.
Some new faces and some old (human and kanine) some of these old boys have been there a long time…if only we could take them all home.

An eclectic mix joined us this week from all over the globe.
Good to have a smiley bunch on board.
They’ll all be working towards PADI Divemaster over the coming weeks… and Maddy joins us as a current Divemaster to get some experience over the summer!
An increadible PADI Self Reliant Diver course taught by our in house Platinum Course Director Kim.
Really good fun, and a new challenge for our PADI Instructors who signed up.
And a very cute
# Baby at the end is always a # CommonRay # Bonus
Best wishes to our amazing MSDT Jess who turned 20 today!!!
Some little pressies and cake in the Dive Centre today!
She’s come on leaps and bounds and achieved a great deal for someone so young. A brilliant Instructor and important part of the team.
Have you ever wanted to feel completely free and at peace in the ocean…
…to push your limits and go beyond what you thought was possible…
…to swim naturally with turtles and rays, unhindered by equipment.
Another 3kg of
collected from the bay. # debris
It’s still shocking to find as much debris as we do in our Marine Protected Area. It’s about time that humans started to realise the consequences of their actions, and make the necessary change.
This week was the first of our new monthly ‘Tuesday Challenge’…
…every 3rd Tuesday of the month will have a different challenge or event for our Interns.
To kick things off we held the first ever Underwater Olympics!
Another successful doggy walk this Thursday.
The shelter has around 200 lovelies that need a home. With two van loads of interns at least 30 of them got some love attention and a nice walk.
Amazing effort on the PADI Rescue Diver Course by Harry and Ellie taught by PADI Instructor Cydney.
Congrats on becoming PADI Rescue Divers both!
A lot of new skills and in water practice means they are one step closer to Pro status, and have some great new safety skills and knowledge.
Ever wondered what it would be like to become a PADI Scuba Instructor?
Sit back, turn the sound up, and find out how our Candidates, on one of our PADI IDC’s, felt about their experience on the journey to becoming a PADI Pro.
Contact us today to see why we are officially the Number #1 PADI IDC in the region.
A few weeks after the PADI Instructor Examination and our candidates are enjoying the fruits of their labours.
Sad to see them go but super happy for all who took the brave decision to change their life and
, you won’t regret it! # GoPro
Charlotte and Mads have coupled up and are off to find work in the Med…
Congratulations to Paul on becoming a PADI Open Water Diver!!
And to Anoushka on her first PADI Open Water Student!
Paul has just opened up a new world of fun, exploration and excitement….
Take a look at some of the photos from the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Instructor Specialty, with Rich and Jess, taught by our very own PADI Platinum Course Director, Alice.
Richard racing a Sea Hare with a DPV, surprisingly the Sea Hare won!
Great day for a PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Instructor Specialty Course with PADI Instructor, Rich and PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, Jess.
Are you a PADI Instructor in need of Instructor Specialties? Book in with our full time Platinum Course Director Kim!
Another two Emergency First Responders in the world!!
What an amazing thing to develop skills and knowledge that could, one day, save someone’s life.
Well done to Harry and Ellie for passing the Primary and Secondary Care course on their journey to PADI Pro.
A beautiful young Angel Shark spotted by Rich and Michelle in the bay!!!
😁 😁 We surmise from it’s behaviour that it was playing hide and seek with friends. 😁
A rare and special sighting this time of year for this critically endangered species.
Not far from the Dive Centre is an amazing dog shelter where Marion and her team do a sterling job rehoming the abandoned dogs of Tenerife.
However, there are so many that they need help from volunteers to walk them! Good thing we have a load of dog loving interns!
Here are some pictures from the shelter and our afternoon dog walk.
Some favourite moments from this weeks dive briefings.
It’s good to laugh as well as work hard!!!
“I can just get lost in your eyes David”
“German effeciency in concentration mode.”
“It’s all about visulaizing the dive guys.”
“…and this line here means you will have a long and prosperous life.”
“Why is that guy taking pictures of us?”
Harry briefing last nights football scores by mistake.

It’s a hard life…

The first sighting of a new born Common Ray in the bay, with Mum keeping a watchful eye over her baby – even though they are born with full capability to fend for themselves after 9 months developing inside its mother! Abades Bay, a Marine Protected Area, is perfect for these sightings.
Captured by one of the Instructors out teaching skills to the Interns!

The answer is… AWESOME!!!
Great fun with Charlotte and Mads scooting around kitted up to our ears today.
Common Rays are out in abundance in the bay at the moment. After their 9 month gestation period, they are ready for their imminent new arrivals – and so are we!! Bring on the baby rays!

Congratulations to Tommy on becoming a PADI Open Water Diver!
He has taken to diving like a fish to water!
Here he is on a
Speciality, moving towards Advanced Open Water whilst making a difference by cleaning up the bay! # DiveAgainstDebris
Occasionally one of the interns at the dive centre does something very special, or goes above and beyond… or just has an amazing attitude.
On such occasions we present them with a ‘Best of the Best’ award as acknowledgement!
Congratulations to Tom! Your amazing helpfulness and attitude over the past few weeks has been awesome.
Looks like we have ourselves some new PADI Night Diver Speciality Instructors!
