Riaansscuba Padi 5* Dive resort in Tenerife. We have the most amazing dive sites in the Canary Islands. Riaans scuba is situated opposite the Playa Arena Beach, where you can find an amazing underwater adventure. The sea life here is outstanding, and you can experience the thrill of diving in Tenerife, with turtles, Rays and shoals of tropical fish. Scuba diving in Tenerife offers some amazing volcanic rock formations with some small caverns swim through's and plenty of marine life.When scuba diving in Tenerife, we regularly see Bream, Sea Bass, Wrasse, Barracuda, Amber jacks, Octopus,Moral Eel to name just a few, also some of the biggest Stingrays in Tenerife waters, which are very used to scuba divers and come in quite close (Gentle giants).

We did 5 dives with Riaans Scuba in October 2014. The dives were excellent, stress free, small groups, dives sites selection was done not only based on conditions but also on our preference. Full support provided with the transportation and handling of our gear. And the idea taking underwater pictures is excellent - finally we have few pictures of ourselves...... More

From my initial email to our family dive the team at Rianns Scuba were awesome. They made the kids feel at ease with their relaxed professionalism and friendly approach and took us on 2 amazing dives including one with sea turtles. Both my kids are now hooked on diving and can't wait for our next family dive. We definitely plan... More

I went to Tenerife with my partner for a week at the end of may. I really liked the local area but the best part of the holiday was scuba diving with Riaan. I was really nervous on the first day (my partner has his PADI and I'd never dived before) but they literally held my hand the whole time.... More

Friendly, professional, fun and welcoming. After 7 dives over the past couple of weeks I can highly recommend Rianns scuba to anyone wanting to dive in Tenerife. Good access to some excellent dive sites and friendly guides and instructors who really know their way around. They did equally well dealing with experienced divers, as well as my eldest daughter, who... More

Where to start? Well I could do no better than the staff. Wendy and Beck's on the front desk were great helpful and charming. The three dive masters I dived with Gavin, Karl, and Marco were all great. Full of humour and professionalism. The night dive with the owner Riaan was a joy. As an instructor myself I found the...
