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

Wendy, the inside gal was great with communicating with me via email on where to pick me up as I was staying at a friend’s house. When the owner picked me up I was a tad sad to learn I was the only person diving that day. However, they took such great care of me and then we drove almost... More

Really excellent dive centre - was really surprised by the quality of diving in Tenerife and everyone I met at the dive centre was really friendly and professional and provided a great overall experience. Amazing array of sea life - the turtle and Atlantic Ray sightings were a real privilege. Although qualified I hadn't dived for a while and Wendy,... More

Went on a DSD with the family (mother and 3 siblings) and loved it so much that as soon as I came home I started my Open Water course. If you are looking for something fun to do while in Tenerife THIS IS IT! If you've never gone before you're sure to get hooked.

Very professional & friendly service from Wendy & Riaan. Dived in Alcala harbour/bay and it was a fantastic experience. Depth & site here was such that it was suitable for less confident divers or trainees. Turtles, Cuttlefish & loads of other species to say nothing of the fantastic underwater landscape to explore. We will definitely return.

My husband and I are newly qualified divers and were looking for somewhere to do our first dives. I found Riaans Scuba on the Internet and had a good feeling from their website and trip advisor reviews. They replied promptly to my message and booked us in for the days we requested, without asking for payment up front, which I... More

My boyfriend and I went diving for the first time, Riaan and his team were absolutely fantastic! We had an amazing time, during the whole dive the team took care of all the technical things, we got to see some sea life and collect a few shells. Riaan and his team was extremely helpful throughout the dive, making sure everything... More
