My girlfriend, an Advanced Openwater Diver, and I, a Rescue Diver, did two shore dives with Dive Academy at The Arch and Discovery Bay in Arinaga. Dive Academy is a pretty standard dive operation and you will be well taken care of with equipment setup and disassembly before and between dives done for you. All you have to do is... More

Our older son did his diving training here starting ten years back so I knew that the dive center here is really good with competent instructors. Still I was surprised by the really friendly attitude from the staff. A special thank to our instructor... More

As experienced divers, (BSAC Dive Leader & PADI open water diver) we checked the reviews, and have to say the positive reviews / rumors fit. An excellent dive center, friendly crew, and nothing is too much for them! If you want to learn to dive, this... More

We dived with Dive Academy Gran Canaria in late July/early August 2015 and what a pleasure it was! The team were hugely professional, very safety conscious and they really went out of their way to ensure that every dive was incredible, with bottom times over an hour for most dives. They spent the entire time ensuring that we were relaxed... More

They take good care of their gear, their customers and their facilities. They have very well trained and highly professional instructors. I have completed a total of 4 PADI diving courses... More

They are a friendly, safety conscious diving centre who try very hard to give you great diving and a great time. We visited many dive sites on the island, transport provided with hotel pick up, our kit was washed and dried by them. This was service at its best. We had a great time with them and they have diving... More
