Diving in Tenerife
Tenerife is one of the best locations to dive in the Canary Islands. Why? Not only do we have the highest mountain in Spain, but intricate volcanic rocks above and below the water. Dive from our boat or the shore to see beautiful underwater flora, shipwrecks, natural caves and swim-throughs.
And what about our marine life? You will be surprised by the large variety of amazing underwater activity. Check out our Instagram! Dive with Turtles, Atlantic rays, Bull rays, Octopus, Moray eels, Rock lobsters, Bream and critically endangered Angel Sharks which are regularly seen around the island. Tenerife is blessed with year-round sunny weather. With a low water temperature of 19°C and a high of 24°C and crystal clear visibility, you can be sure to enjoy your dive holiday at any time of the year.
Frequently asked questions
No absolutely not. We understand that life sometimes gets in the way of diving unfortunately.
Our instructors will go at your pace and take very good care of you. They will happily go through any skills you would like to practice and will be right by your side while you re-establish your buoyancy and trim.
Our waters are around 22-24 degrees between May and November and around 20-22 degrees between December and April on average. The winter months are the best time to see large Angel Sharks
We dive in 5.5mm suits which keeps us warm and toasty all year round
We recommend you pack for the beach so towel, sun cream, water, qualification card and swim wear to change into at the dive site and some change if you want a drink or snack during your surface interval.
We pick up at 08:45 and usually have you back for around 14:30 depending upon traffic
We pick up within the local area of the dive centre, although exceptions can be made for pickups from further afield. Please ask for more details when booking.
There are a lot of illegal dive centres in Tenerife unfortunately.
It is important to ask if they have the required PESCA Licence and Hyperbaric Chamber Contract.
Also make sure that they have an actual dive centre! It might sound daft but you’d be amazed how many just work from out of their car or garage, again these are operating illegally and just not worth the risk.
