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). « less

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...

I came to the center, with a little bit of scare, but Gavin helped a lot. Altough i have a PADI certificate, it was a really good and fascinating diving. One hour under the water with the most fantastic partners ever.

My daughter (16) had wanted to try scuba diving for sometime. Rianns Scuba was recommended to us and from the moment we enquired to the actual dive, we were treated really well by Wendy (reception) Gavin and Marco (instructors). All were very professional in their approach and although this is a business, it was clear from the outset that money... More

Having dived in Los Gigantis for many years and having a poor experience last year we gave Riaans Scuba a try and totally had out faith restored in dive centres! The team were friendly, approachable and supportive in a non-condescending way! They were utterly professional, the equipment was well looked after and the diving was fabulous! Thanks to all the...

I went to this dive centre with my 2 boys and we were all slightly nervous, i had dived before but they had not. My nerves were soon gone when it was so obvious that we were in good hands. I have never met such professional but humorous team. They made us laugh from the start but never dropped the... More
