We focus on providing quality training and recreational diving to small groups of divers. We can take you from your very first experience underwater all the way to becoming a PADI Scuba Instructor. We have a diving RIB moored in the local marina, Marina San Miguel. There is a great variety of dive sites available to us, both boat and shore dives all around the island of Tenerife for all levels of ability. Here in Tenerife there is so much to see, we are lucky enough to see Sting ray, Baracuda, Bream, Wrasse, Angel Sharks, Turtles and much more. « less

We did 5 dives with Mermaid diving and found them to be extremely friendly and welcoming, but there were a few things I didn't like. Firstly, they advertise as being able to do boat dives, but the boat is not available, hasn't been for some time, and looks like it will stay out of the water for a while. Secondly,... More

Very friendly and helpful people, absolutely safe dive. Recommended! We did one dive in Abades. Having not dived in some months everyone was very supportive getting the gear up and running. Dive was great. Thank you so much to the whole gang!

Locally owned and operated. We bought dive packages, 4 one tank dives that you could combine into 2 tank dives, for only $120.00. The price could not be beat. We did 4 one tank dives and on our second day, one non-diver in our group was able to snorkel and see the same wrecks and sights that the divers were... More

The atmosphere was AMAZING the staff are super friendly and made me feel like one of their own immediately. They are so passionate about diving and so willing to share their knowledge with you, it...

I would recommend Mermaid Diving to... More

There is a clear difference in these comments between those who got a diving certification from Dive and Sea Tenerife, versus those who are already certified and used them to plan a dive holiday.  As one of the latter, I can't evaluate their training; however, I can certainly say that my friends and I were very unsatisfied with their excursions.  We...
