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

Both my son (11) and I dived with Dive Academy whilst on holiday in Arguineguin. The dive centre has a great location and we were very well looked after by the whole team (Matt, Rosemari, Matthew, Helen). Excellent pre-service with prompt and informative emails explaining the booking process and providing facilities for online booking/payment. The dive sites were varied and... More

I booked a diving day here for my boyfriend for when we visited Gran Canaria, the staff were great emailing me all the details and helping me book online before we got there. Excellent service, picking us up from our hotel and dropping us back off. Staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us, even made us a... More

A fantastic dive center with own pool and a tip top boat. They take you to loads of dive locations and are willing to change their plans to accommodate. Cheers, we'll return soon.

I did the practical section of my Advanced Open Water course with the Dive Academy a few weeks ago. From initial contact by email right through to my last dive of the week everything was great. The team can't do enough to make everything run smoothly - starting with picking you up from and dropping you back to your hotel... More

My partner and I went diving for the first time on our trip to Gran Canaria and we really enjoyed ourselves. We got picked up straight from our hotel and taken back there afterwards. We did the discover scuba diving course so got all the safety information and then practised the skills in the pool then went for a dive... More
