Europe's most Southern Scuba Diving Centre is ideally located in Arguineguin. The facilities are excellent with on site pool, areas to wash and dry kit (which the staff are happy to do for you - a nice touch!) and areas to sit for briefings and paperwork. The centre can pick up from nearby areas and drop off when your diving... More

I am a BSAC Sports Diver and am on a relaxing holiday with my pregnant wife who is a non diver. But I wanted to just do a couple of dives, which I normally do in each place we visit on holiday. The email response from Dive Academy was pretty quick, the reservation process was painless, and they include a... More

I recently took a dive course here having never tried it before. I was pretty nervous about it at some points and I was very impressed by how patient and professional the instructors were with me (particularly Dom - cheers!) and I passed in the end! I am not someone who writes reviews very often but really I wanted to... More

Top of the line service and very friendly. They really try to coordinate so you can dive the sites you want. For me they arranged a trip to Las Palmas for wreck diving and The Cathedral site. I have had some bad experince with another dive center in Gran Canaria in regards of safety and bad dive guides. Dive Academy... More

We did our OW Referral Dives with these guys and it was total pleasure. Really professional, accommodating and organised we spent a brilliant few days with them and strongly recommend them to anyone diving in Gran Canaria. Matt Hewett was our instructor and he was fantastic, he made the course a total pleasure and we thank him!

I did a couple of fun dives here, and some friends did their first scuba course. The staff was very accommodating to all our requests, and they know their way around to the best spots.

I took my Padi OW here and it was just an amazing experience. I had no diving experience and if you are to be getting your feet wet for the first time, this place has my absolute recommendation! We were picked up every morning by the owner himself and spent the day with our instructor who was a really cool... More

Matt and his crew got it together. It's as simple as that, we had lovely instructors that took the time to explain everything so many times until it finally got through our thick skulls. Loved the whole experience and can wholeheartedly recommend this dive center. It was a great service from the pickup to the drop off in the evening... More
