First time Scuba Diving and it was a blast! The instructor was very clear and made it safe for all of us. Didn't get to see any turtles that day BUT they took a lot of photos and videos (which you gotta pay at the end) but it was worth the money. Made me less afraid of the ocean and pretty excited to do again on future trips.

First time ever scuba diving! I had a problem getting there as Google maps took me to 4 different locations. I phoned and got put through to the centre and the woman was wonderful and helped me find it just in time. The instructor was very knowledgable and relaxed. At first when my head went under I panicked and came back to the surface. After just 2 minutes of support from the instructor I tried again and any nerves I had previously were gone! He kept making sure we were okay and took so many pictures. It’s 30 euros if you want them, I got told it wasn’t a good idea to take my phone on the boat but if you want mobile pictures on the boat your fine just keep it in a small bag! We got water and muffins on board after which were well needed. Overall great experience seen lots of fish but no turtles, was still amazing. Didn’t sleep the night before from fear and now I can’t believe I was worried in the first place. Will 100% do it again.

The highlight of my trip to Tenerife! The dive school made sure everyone was educated before going out on the boat (how to resolve any issues whilst diving like water in mask etc). Then the instructors took us out one by one to dive whilst the others snorkelled, I didn’t see any turtles but plenty of colourful fish and even a school of small fish. The instructor was so patient and took lots of photos (these were available to purchase after the trip for €30, which I did to remember this experience). Then upon getting back on the boat we were giving water and cakes to refuel ourselves. On the boat journey we saw dolphins of which the driver stopped and let us observe. Such a good experience and excellent value for money!
