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.

I just returned from two weeks holiday in Tenerife and I've got to say that it was the best holiday ever. I got in contact with Melissa at Dive and Sea, she was able to answer all of my silly questions, and arrange my accommodation with no hassles. Golf Del Sur is not a booming holiday town, but there are... More

Over half term my two sons (14 and 12) completed their Open Water Diver Course. Throughout the whole process Melissa and her team were superb. I arranged the course via email and the responses were swift and informative - Melissa even arranged for the manuals to be posted to us before the course so the boys could read up. The... More

I was vacationing at Tenerife and wanted to do a few recreational dives. However, Melissa, Tin Man and the entire crew at Dive and Sea were so great company that I ended up doing my Advanced Open Water with them. Brilliant service and great flexibility in tailoring the course schedule completely according to my timetable. Perfecrt place to dive!

Melissa was extremely helpful, arranging affordable accommodation, allowing us to purchase our own manuals before we arrived and taking them off the course price, and... More

I recently took my advanced open water with these guys while enquiring about internships. I first met Melissa, who was extremely helpful with all my questions when I went in the shop to get information! She was very efficient and would always get back to my emails when I had more to ask. All of the staff were very welcoming... More

Our second diving holiday with Dive and Sea Tenerife this year. This time we let Melissa organise the whole thing. Amazing value! The accommodation at Terrazas de La Paz was really handy.( 1 minute from the centre.) Basic but good size, very clean and provided all we needed. Two swimming pools on site, usually empty. Restaurant in centre but others... More

If you are going to Tenerife - at the very least visit the Dive And Sea Tenerife shop. Talk to the people there and inquire about diving. The instructors, dive masters, and interns are all very professional and go out of their way to provide a safe, fun, and over-all super experience. I'm an instructor myself, my Wife is AOW.... More

I did a rescue diver course with Dive and Sea Tenerife, and in the short time I was there, they made me feel right at home and very comfortable throughout the entire time. They are among the most knowledgeable and expert people I have ever met, and I learnt so much with them and their customer care is top notch.... More

The problem with Dive&Sea is not technical Scuba know-how, but rather an utter lack of interpersonal skills.We found the owner abrasive and completely devoid of any hospitality or sharing a passion for what they offer.Trying to squeeze information out of him was a laboriously lacklustre affair. We went in to the shop to ask about booking a dive (having done... More
