The morning starts by either meeting at the diving centre at 8.30am or organising a pick up from your hotel. The first step is to complete the paperwork and then organise your diving equipment. Depending on your certification levels, date of last dive etc we then head to suitable dive sites. Gran Canaria offers both wreck and reef dives, from the shore or the boat. You are guided around the dive sites by one of our Divemasters or instructors. After two beautiful dives we then return to the dive centre approx 2pm. Equipment hire can be provided. Dive insurance is not included and required. We can provide this for an additional 6 euros per day.

During the two days you are at the site, you will learn to dive in a safe and controlled environment. The first day you venture out to the heated swimming pool onsite, where you will complete the first 3 training sessions. There you will be able to learn and master the basic scuba diving skills required for the certification course. Following this, your guides will then help you download your open water diver manual, allowing you to complete a little theory work either at the dive center or in the comfort of your hotel room. Day 2 will see you head to the ocean where you will complete two open-water dives. During these two dives you will ultilize some of the skills that you have previously learnt in the pool, as you take in the beautiful marine life that Gran Canaria has on offer. Each day starts approx 8:30AM and finishes at approximately 2:00PM. This means in the afternoons you will be free to relax and enjoy the sun as you please.

We did the activity with Juan Carlos, he was very close to being only two people, he explained to us in detail the operation of the cylinder and the light equipment, at first we reserved the activity for Sunday but he called us to tell us that the sea was not visible by the tides of the pine tree and we moved the activity to the next day. He also took photos of us in the sea. Very competitive price, if you are looking to start, this is your activity.

The guides explained everything from AZ how everything works. It was just amazing getting in the water and breathing underwater for the first time. You were always under surveillance, so nothing could happen. I can only recommend.

A really great experience for first time divers! Very professional guide and we felt very good taken care of and safe. This place is really the best and something we would recommend to everyone who likes the ocean =)

We had a wonderful time, the team is very attentive and gives good advice. The discovery of the seabed and its superb colors delighted us!

Great guide, great equipment! Only to be recommended! Always my pleasure!
