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

Having recently overcome a fear of being underwater, a scuba dive was on my wife's 'bucket list' and a trip to Gran Canaria offered the perfect opportunity. I researched several PADI schools on the island but chose Dive Academy primarily for the pool facilities which meant my wife was able to get used to the gear in a very controlled... More

Whilst staying with friends in Arguineguin we decided to sprinkle the week with a spot of diving. The team at Dive Acadamy counldnt have been more helpful even though we were only diving a few times. We would certainly consider using them again. Thanks guys. David & Lyn

I visited Gran Canaria between 4/10/14 and 09/10/14, I was looking for a dive destination that offered warm weather at this time of year that was outside of the red sea area. After deciding on Gran Canaria, I was looking for a professionally run and most importantly friendly dive centre and with Dive Academy I believe I have found it.... More

The dive centre is a 5* PADI outfit and is an extremely professional outfit. I wasn't expecting the diving to be nearly as good as it was. We visited the marine reserve and there was lots to see. Slightly different from hard coral dives but fascinating all the same. The owner and instructors are very professional and made the diving... More

As first time divers we were quite nervous but have always wanted to try it, these guys were simply amazing, we got picked up promptly and even though only 4 of us were diving (including 1 child) they drove the entire family (2 had to get a taxi as there were 9 of us). They were very patient and we... More

Great super friendly staff that are very accomodating and genuine. The actual academy is extremely clean and situated nearby a few of the sites that you will dive in (my open water experience anyway). You get picked up and dropped off to your hotel and I was at least a 20 minute drive away from arguineguin. I went in petrified... More
