Boats open the door to a world of diving that’s inaccessible from shore

For our guests that are qualified divers, our boat Camarón offers the chance to get out to some of the best dive sites on the island without the need for a long drive or what can sometimes be a difficult shore entry. During your time onboard, you will be supplied with complimentary soft drinks and snacks.

I had an amazing day out with these guys. We did 2 dives from the boat and they were super friendly, knowledgeable and experienced. We got to swim with turtles and see a huge eagle ray. Best day out in ages thank you so much 😊

My husband and I took the discover scuba dive class and had the most amazing experience!! We were both a little nervous going into it but the guides did a great job teaching the relevant skills and making sure everyone felt comfortable and confident during the entire day!! If you are looking for a great first experience, I highly recommend Excel Scuba!

My girlfriend and I went diving here in 2021. We were guided by very experienced guides, who are quite the skilled and enthusiastic divers you'd want to have with you. Safety first, fun second. We loved the dive sites and the diving school. Would definitely recommend.

Ik heb hier mijn Padi Open Water Diver cursus gedaan. Vanaf het moment dat ik binnen kwam lopen was iedereen super vriendelijk. Ook tijdens de cursus waren alle instructeurs en de andere duikers bijzonder aardig, gaven veel tips, hielpen me overal mee en deden hun best om me nog meer te motiveren! Instructeurs waren Sean en Steve, beide toppers! Als ik weer naar Tenerife ga, dan ga ik zeker nog een keer duiken hier.

I spent two months on Tenerife with Excel scuba and I can say that I’ve made a new family over here. I came as a PADI rescue diver and did my DM and Instructor. You get a hands on experience in the diving industry and you learn a lifetimes of knowledge from the instructors here. I lived in the intern accomodation here and it was in an amazing location and it was very nice. You will also make lots of new friends in the accomodation. For the IDC Colin the course director is one of the best in the world and I don’t think I would have made it with out him. Thanks again excel! And see you in a couple of months for IDC staff!

Last week finished my rescue diver and efr course with the Excel team. Today we did two fundives at the Tabaiba wreck. Had a great time, felt really comfy and at home, special thanks to Steve, Pierre and Sean: from the pickup to the end of the day: laugh, family-ish feeling. Good jon! Highly recommend.
