This was a great experience from start to finish. Sophie’s response to my initial email was prompt, professional and very informative. The commutation was excellent which set the scene for everything else.
My daughter and I were picked up from our hotel reception by their courtesy transport which arrived in good time and dropped us off at the shop. We then completed the paperwork, tried on our wetsuits and shoes, and made payment. It was all very efficient.
We were then transported to the dive site and received a briefing to explain the equipment and what actions we would be asked to carry out in the water. Again, this was very efficient and the staff were all super friendly and they all exuded confidence.
The actual dive was fantastic, we saw plenty of marine life and spent a good amount of time underwater. We felt totally safe throughout. Well done Leagues Ahead.
I would definitely use them again

The team at Leagues Ahead Diving were brilliant, Sophie was really helpful with updates on the run up to the visit and provided me with all the information I needed.
I went on the first dive experience and was picked up from my hotel by Kyle and Paulo who were both very welcoming and informative.
Before the dive Paulo ran through all of the equipment and some safety procedures that we would be performing when in the water to get used to the equipment, the instructions and information was very clear and they made sure we all understood what was going to happen.
Kyle sorted out all of our equipment and was very helpful in assisting us put on our wet suits and tanks. During the dive we went through the manoeuvres of clearing the masks, expelling water from the regulator and achieving buoyancy before moving on to deeper water.
Throughout the dive both Paulo and Kyle made sure we were comfortable and happy and provided great support and guidance (even underwater)
We were able to see many different varieties of sea life and it was a truly beautiful experience.
Paulo was a fantastic teacher and made the experience all the more enjoyable.

It was a great way to spend a morning and the whole team were awesome!!!! Thank you so much for a great time!!!

Sophie and James were real pros, friendly and helpful, patient and caring. It was our first dive ever and as a family of four we all had a blast! James managed to put us all at ease and he was great in supporting and instucting us all. It was our boys birthday and they had a truly memorable experience. I would recommend dividing with Sophie and James any time, you won't regret it. Both of them go the extra mile to make sure you have a fantastic time - including providing some sugar and refreshments after the dive, which is much needed:-)

Loved to dive with Leagues Ahead Diving (or just Sophie and James), they are so nice and friendly. They really do some effort to make sure you have a good time and help you out wherever they can.
The equipment was relative new and all working perfect (trust me, it is not allways like this when diving all over the world).
I did 4 dives and got to see a bunch of octopus, stingrays, barracuda, some weird lobster, a swimming spanisch dancer, murray eals, cuttle fish and much more.

These guys are fabulous. It was an experience with our 13yr old who had never dived before. Our 16 year old who had a couple of previous dives and Me, open water qualified. We had a personalised experience in a very small group which worked perfectly for us. Diving in a lovely location too, no chlorinated swimming pools for training. Straight into the sea water.

They took care of the right package for us all. An excellent experience for us all and following her first time our youngest can't wait to go diving again.

Thank you so much guys you made the morning of diving the highlight of our holiday!!! Would definitely recommend these guys. A++

The men had a great time, they had plenty of time diving for first timers and felt completely safe with their instructors.

We did the Discovering Scuba Diving course whilst on holiday - was a great experience in itself with the added bonus of the very kind team we met - Sophie & Ilze.

Would recommend scuba diving to anyone, especally if you do it with Leauges Diving!

Managed to get this really cool photo from one of the videos the instructors took.

After reading all the reviews, I had pretty high expectations to my first diving experiance, but you guys, especially James managed not only to fulfil my expectations but superpassed them.

It was the first diving experiance of my life and from the beginning on you could tell, that you guys know what you are talking about. Security during the diving was very important and you explanations and first steps were absolutely clear and you made sure everyone got it.

The dive itself was absolutely amazing, especially seeing the Oktopus 🐙

As I already told James, I will definitely come back and make my diving licence with you guys.

If you are ever in Gran Canaria you just have to go diving with this guys!

This was my first time scuba diving and Leagues Ahead were the best! The experience could not have been more positive. Sophie made my signing up super easy (all contact is through WhatsApp btw), and even helped me find my way to the shop when I got lost after getting off the bus. The dive team, James, Kyle and Fateema were friendly and super professional. Pre-dive training was thorough and relaxed. I felt fully prepared and at ease when we began to explore the ten meter depths. I was able to have fun knowing that Kyle was right by my side if I need help. All in all, a perfect first dive. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough.

What a fantastic experience we had today. My partner and I went for the Discover Scuba Diving experience.
Sophie is an excellent host and all the diving instructors are excellent. James led a brilliant safety briefing and explained the process and then we moved to our 1 to 2 instructor, Kyle, who was brilliant as well!
Massive special thanks go to Ilsa, who looked after my other half, who struggled with the entire concept of breathing underwater and gave him excellent 1 on 1 focus and was able to get him to dive to 4 meters, even though he had initially wanted to stop; he is so grateful for her enthusiasm and encouragement. She is a real credit to the diving centre!
If you are unsure of who to dive with in Gran Canaria, or unsure if it's for you, just do it, go for it. Can not recommend Leagues Ahead more!
