My husband and I did the 1 day scuba diving experience. Simone and Ryan were brilliant. We were taught hand signals to ensure we were able to communicate under the water, how to clear your face mask, how to equalise ears on diving, full safety briefing etc. The practice dive in the pool was great for calming the nerves, gaining confidence and ironing out any concerns before being under the waves. Safety is without a doubt forefront in their minds at all times. During the dive I felt worried, signalled this to Simone and she calmed my nerves, breathed with me and reassured me by holding my hand the whole time. I fed the fish, have some amazing photos and videos and would recommend the experience. If you are apprehensive then just say, Ryan and Simone are very much in tune with you and want you to have the best experience under close, safe, professional supervision. We were lucky to have clear visibility, saw numerous fish and had a great time. I hope your fingers have recovered Simone after me holding your hand so tight!! Thank you both for helping us make some great memories.

Excellent first ever diving experience. I was a little afraid as I had never dived before but Jerry and his team took the time to explain everything in details and I was completely at ease! The dive was quite long (about 1 hour) whereas usually they last 30minutes (as I had seen on the website of other diving centres) so you really get your money's worth! The beach is nice and we saw many fishes. They speak several languages (English, Spanish, French..). Professional and fun! I recommend!

It was my first time ever diving and Jerry was amazing. He taught me everything I needed to know and made me feel very at ease under the water. I undertook my PADI open water divers course and he took us on 4 incredible dives around ship wrecks and we saw some incredible marine life e.g. sting rays and angel sharks which made the experience even better. On our 4th dive he took us on a deeper dive on the boat - this was wonderful and he gave me all the confidence I needed. I couldn’t recommend Jerry and Canary Diving enough. I will definitely be coming back to do some more dives with them.

Unfortunately our snorkelling was cut short as my husband suffered an anxiety attack. However, for the short amount of time we spent in the water, our instructor Simone, was extremely patient and professional and I do not hesitate to recommend these guys. I thoroughly enjoyed what time I spent snorkelling and got to feed the fish with a banana. Even though we didn't spend the entire day in the sea, we were happy to sunbathe and were still transported back to our hotel when the day was over. Would happily try again next time and still give them 5 stars.

Thank you for your review, we are thrilled you enjoyed your day, it can of course be a bit overwhelming to see under the water, all the fish and floating on top. I am sure if he tries it again he will enjoy it. All the best from the team here at Canary Diving.

A couple of weeks ago our 12 year old son (and we indirectly) has made acquaintance with Canary Diving Adventures and with their experienced and very friendly diving instructors Jerry, David and Bert. Under the careful and very responsible supervision of David and Bert, he successfully got his PADI Junior Open Water. Since then our son keeps repeating that this last diving vacation is his ever best vacation and he can’t wait to come back and to follow the advanced diving course with hope that David is still working there, as David was a great support and buddy for completing his course in a reliable, friendly and warm atmosphere.

David was able to communicate very clearly, patiently and in good coordination in a way that our son didn’t have any problem understanding David’s accurate instructions, in spite of that our son’s mother language isn’t English.

My husband and I are very happy and satisfied about the big amount of knowledge, skills and very beautiful experience which our son got during his different dives. We are absolutely sure that our son was in good and reliable hands.

Without any doubt we recommend Canary Diving Adventures to the other children and adults for diving courses.

Lots of thanks, Yulia

Im a little late with this review as we dived with Jerry and Bert on 8th and 9th June.
We are newly qualified divers, having completed our open water course in October in Barbados and not dived since.
Whilst staying in playa taurito we wanted to dive again and went to this centre on the side of the beach.
We agreed we would do a refresher shore dive and then a boat dive the following day.
My husband is a fairly confident diver and Im
Pretty nervous as I seem to struggle with my coordination.
We did the first dive straight from the shore with Bert. He asked us to bring plenty of bananas to t the fishes. He was really great - He was patient and supportive for me as I was nervous after such a long time not diving. The shore dive down to a reef was very clear and I’ve added a video of it to the listing so you can see what youll get if you do the shore dive with them. You can also see how the fish love a banana (and me struggling with my buoyancy which they really helped me with afterwards!!)
The following day was boat dive day. There was Myself and my husband as new divers and two very experienced divers. Jerry and Bert took this dive so that Jerry could
Come with my husband and I and Bert with the more experienced divers.
This was great for me as it meant I didn’t have to worry about holding anyone back or detracting from anyone else’s dive With my inexperience.
Im sure it was better for them as well so they weren’t held back by newbies. So which ever side of the coin you’re on Jerry will make sure your dive is the best it can be.
Jerry was very patient and knowledgable and gave me tips to improve my dive and decrease my rate of air consumption which was really helpful.
I had a great dive and we saw a fab shipwreck which I’ve included in the second video.
All in all a very professional supportive dive company with some great dive
Locations, who plan carefully to make sure everyone has their best dive experience. Would highly recommend to everyone and would definitely dive with again if in the vicinity. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excellent scuba experience with these guys when we recently visited Gran Canaria.
My partner did a scuba experience dive and my son a bubble maker. Both felt the experience was fantastic and Jerry and his staff couldn’t have been more accommodating.
They kept in touch regarding weather changes and changed the dive location to improve the experience. The water was clean and the weather fantastic.
They were knowledgeable and friendly and the equipment was clean and well looked after.
Bert helped make my sons first scuba dive a positively memorable one and he felt confident and safe with Bert’s support and help.
I also felt safe as a parent letting my young son dive without parental presence.
It would be great to come back to canary dive to complete the PADI course and explore the shipwrecks as there is much to explore in close vicinity to this dive centre.
All in all a great time and would recommend 👍🏻

We are non swimmers really excited and nervous to experience our first scuba diving experience, Ryan and Simone made it worthwhile by making us feel confident, prepared and it was one of the best experiences we could ever have. Both of them were very friendly and professional. Ryan took a lot of pictures under water and the whole experience is more than worth what the company charges for. Life changing experience, highly recommended!

My wife and I are certified divers. We have 3 teenagers and decided to introduce them to diving this week in Gran Canaria. Jerry and his team (Ryan and Simone) were FANTASTIC! They were patient and very deliberate with my 14, 16 and 17 year old children. Safety was hands down at the top of their list of priorities which gave me a lot of confidence in them as divers and instructors. We started in the pool with basic skills and instruction before moving on to the ocean. They broke us up into 2 groups as well to ensure my children received personal attention in the water, which again I greatly appreciated. My daughter and wife went first for about 45 minutes. When they finished, they took me out with my boys and kept a watchful eye. Highly recommend diving with Canary Diving Adventures. Safety comes first here, which led to a great dive and a ton of fun! We had a great experience!

From the first moment we had a very pleasant experience with the Canary Diving team. Chief Jerry and Jessie & Eric made us feel welcome and at home.

As it was nearly 2 years since I did my Open Water in Egypt things were very exciting again (almost a bit frightening). The team made me feel calm and relaxed before, during and after the dives, which helped me to enjoy the dives to the fullest. Diving with this team felt really good knowing I was in safe and experienced hands. I would highly recommend diving with Canary Diving and hopefully see you next time! 😊
