What people are saying about Costa Adeje

I’m not a swimmer yet this was one of the best experiences ever. I joined the beginner course where I had One instructor Davide with me throughout. Davide is a very patient gentleman with many years of experience. His instructions was accurate. The whole team was friendly. I really loved my session and I will definitely be returning to Tenerife and scuba diving.

First you have a short introductory lesson, then you reach the place and dive. The instructors are young and nice; it is a good introduction to the world of diving, recommended.

Very prepared and thorough in the explanations. A wonderful experience even if you don't see turtles (on the other hand you can spot dolphins from the boat!). A must try!

Loved the experience! Didn't find any turtles but the guides were amazing amd showed us some other cool things and fishes! Went over things wery well and were super nice! ❤️
