Tenerife is an amazing place to dive! The diving crew is one of professionals and a very friendly one! Alessandra, my buddy, was careful for me to have a safe and nice dive. On request they do also night dives. The oceanic life is simply beautiful! I was lucky to see moray ell, turtle, barracudas, schools of many fishes, ray fish, sea horses and many more!

This is was an excellent experience, the guides came around individually to speak with us and check if there was a specific information we wanted to know . They knew their subject and were very good communicators, I learnt so much from them and feel inspired to learn more about our oceans . I would recommend this trip and I would go again !!

Well looked after . 1st time on jet ski and absolutely loved it . Even though it was a bit choppy . Managed to both fall off but the monitor was great and made sure we got back on jet ski ok

Amazing time on the boat, staff were lovely, very knowledgeable about the area, and so helpful. This is a must trip out

Really experienced staffs and nice experiences with watching whales and dolphins!
