We are glad to have experienced our first dive with them!

My spouse and I did the open water dive certificate with Tenerife Diving Academy and was so glad we did. We both recommend them if this is your first experience.Our guide explained everything very clearly, even under water!
The whole Team was great and very helpful with preparations for dives. They are all very friendly and funny. We are glad to have experienced our first dive with them!

I would highly recommend diving with them!

As a scuba diving instructor myself, it was important to see that they place a strong focus on the safety, comfort and enjoyment of their divers. In addition, the staff have a very positive and client-centred attitude, and they don’t compromise on quality. I would highly recommend diving with them!

I’m looking forward to come back as soon as possible to do the Open Water Dive and maybe I’ll get to do the DM Internship

I did the DSD at the Tenerife Diving Academy and it was the best experience I’ve ever had, so I decide to do 3 more dives after the first one.
Everyone where totally friendly and I always felt save while diving with Veronica.

I did my first diving at the Tenerife Diving Academy with Veronica and Scott

I did my first diving at the Tenerife Diving Academy with Veronica and Scott. It was so great and beautiful that I did a second diving with Veronica. If you want to do your diving with someone who loves what she works for, you’ll have to ask for Veronica. Thank you very much for those great and wonderfull experiences! I’m sure, I’ll come back soon to do the Open Water Diver.
Last but not least this Academy is really clean and nice!

I now have a diving job, and will always thank the owners for the help in getting it for me.

I have been asked to write a review for my internship. It would appear old employees are also asking us to write bad
reviews!

Anyway I had a great time. Other interns were super and the training was first class.

The most interesting point is the ones who want me to write bad review are the ones who didn’t do the training as they were
told to do, and were always being told off for being sloppy!

Glad to see they have got rid of those old instructors who dragged the place down.

As for me, I now have a diving job, and will always thank the owners for the help in getting it for me.

Tenerife Diving Academy we absolutely loved it

First dive for me and my 2 children, 13 and 11, last week with Tenerife Diving Academy we absolutely loved it (11 year old was anxious prior to dive). They enjoyed it so much we ended up doing another two dives two days later. Can’t recommend the center highly enough, well looked after throughout the whole experience, professional and welcoming team of people. Kids are hooked now and want to do their open water cert next time we visit. Thanks guys for making our holiday so memorable

In search of professional training in a great environment…look no further

When I finished my PADI IDC I knew I wanted to continue to train and gain experience. I didn’t want to train just anywhere…I wanted solid training from a professional dive organization. I found Tenerife Diving Academy on the internet and sent them an inquiry. The responses I received were informative, polite and timely. I made my decision…I was going to Tenerife! Upon arrival I knew I had made the right decision. The facilities were clean and organized. Staff was friendly and welcoming. By the end of my stay (six weeks) I had gained experience through instructing students, honed my skills and made some great friends. I left Tenerife Diving Academy as a confident MSDT ready for any future challenge in the diving industry. To those in search of professional training in a great environment…look no further! Big “thanks” to Pete and staff!

Welcome with the big smiles, open arms and passion of diving

Tenerife diving academy, is a great place to learn to dive whether that be as an beginner or a experienced diver. The center is situated in a marine protected area so there is so much life under the sea. When I was there I entered as a Rescue diver, I went there to achieve the qualification as a Divemaster, through all the hard work from Pete, Alice, Dave, Adam and the rest of the interns I achieved the qualification. After the Divemaster qualification I wanted to go for the Instructor, again with all the help with the dive center and the friends that I have made when I was there to achieve that level in the scuba diving world. So i say thank you so much for what you have done. In the dive center everyone is involved, looking after the customers, preparing for dives, working on there qualifications, helping around the center. The atmosphere of the center is great, meaning you enter with a smile on your face and when you leave you gain a bigger smile, friends for life, qualification that you can use or improve and a passion in the sport. The dive center is in a beautiful area, with many dives locations just in 400 meters of the center. Everyone that goes to the diving center is welcome with the big smiles, open arms and passion of diving of everyone that is there whether they be interns or customers. Tenerife diving academy is a great place to learn and to enjoy the diving in the areas around the island, the marine life is something that is magical and it is something that I would like to go back to. So to finish it off I will say this, Tenerife dive academy is beautiful place to go to learn to dive and have fun, making friends that will dive with you. This is a place that I would recommend to people that want to dive, like the warm sea, like to see massive amounts of marine life, gain qualifications, make friends, have fun and to have an experience of a life time.
