Blackstone Diving Centre – Costa Adeje, Tenerife

We had an amazing time New Year eve 31/12/2019 with the 2 instructors Diego and Carlos who were brilliant, patient and most of all professional, we can’t take them both enough.

We had 2 instructors for 3 people which was very reassuring as we were a little nervous to begin with. Both Carolos and Diego made everything look easy and they were very patient, funny, amusing and professional in their whole approach.
The dive in total took a total of 4 hours of which we were picked up and dropped back to our hotel. The dive itself last 45mins which was more than enough time being under water.

Everything from start to finish was excellent. From the gear to the suits, from the class to the actual dive, we loved every minute of it.

Thank you to the Blackstone Diving Centre for everything. The photos you took, all included in the price are fantastic memories and ones we will always treasure.

Happy New Year to you all at Blackstone Diving Centre.

It was my first dive ever and I am not a good swimmer, so I went for the full beginners session. Tim did an amazing job, he made me feel safe and took very good care in the ocean, he paid attention and asked if everything was good, while I just had to breathe correctly, equalize the pressure in the ears and enjoy the experience.
I would definitely recommend this to my family and friends, and whoever want to find a new world and be safe, these people are doing a great job! I will be back, next time when I come to Tenerife. Thanks a lot

It is absolutely okay to be a bit anxious at the beginning. This is the reason we offer the pool session before we go to the ocean. In safe conditions, you can get familiar with the diving gear and feel what it looks like to breathe from a regulator. For our diving instructors, it is even more challenging when not everything is working super smoothly from the first second. We were happy that you had an extraordinary experience at the end and save these diving memories forever. If Tenerife will be your again your destination to work remotely, we will be glad to welcome you again. All the best, Alexandra.

This is a very well run operation and the staff are brilliant. Had two fantastic dives with them on 10/09/22 - nothing is too much trouble and all the team are very knowledgeable. Would 100% recommend using this dive centre if you are in Tenerife and looking for a professional outfit.

As a novice, newly qualified open water diver, I had concerns about joining a scuba dive as an individual outside of a "learning environment", with people of whom I had no prior knowledge. From my initial email exchanges, where all my questions were answered promptly and courteously, to my first face to face where although I met different people to those I had emailed, they knew to expect my visit to the dive centre and my past diving experience. I was offered dives that were suitable for my abilities in a very small group, not the next available. This gave me the confidence to proceed with a booking knowing that my custom wasn't a "quick buck". On the day of the dives my needs (air) were taken into account so that I could enjoy the full dives and hopefully I did not detract from the experience of the others. Indeed, I was passed tips and advice to improve my trim etc. to get the most from my second dive and help me in future. And the dive site, I can only describe as an aquarium. I was astounded by the diversity of marine life in the setting of dramatic geology not more than a 100m from the shore. My thanks to all at Blackstone and I hope to return soon !

Dear Richard. Your entry sounds like a diary of a memorable day, which is very touching. Nothing could make us happier than giving you an unforgettable day of diving. Of course, there are many little things that could be done better at the beginning of a diver's life, but that is completely normal and we are happy to be there for you. You started the sport because you enjoy it and you will see that you will love it even more with every dive. Observing the underwater world and enjoying the silence around you makes diving a wonderful hobby. We look forward to your next visit with us.

Dived again with Blackstone. I can’t recommend them highly enough. A Great run Family dive centre where all the staff are so helpful. Despite strong winds and a choppy sea Mehran managed to find us the couple of dive site’s where we had a great day’s diving.
Very professional in all their Organization.
I will be back for more next year.
Thanks again.

Excellent costumer service, extremely clean and organized facilities. Attentive and fun staff. Markus and the team did an excellent job - you feel welcome and well taken care of from the moment you call to ask for information. We dived in Alcalá - visibility was great and the company couldn’t be better. You can fee the passion in Markus words - so friendly, so knowledgeable!!

I had a fantastic time learning the skills for my open water diving course. 🐠🦀🦞
The school is very friendly, organised and I had one to one instruction with Marcus. The school has a family run feel to it which was really really nice.
Marcus is very enthusiastic and explains things so they are very easy to understand.
I had a great time learning to dive but also had some great conversations with Marcus and Kerstin. I will be coming back to dive with them again soon. Highly recommended!!

Dear James, I was already curious to meet you because I could feel right from the beginning that there is somebody who is super keen on learning scuba. And when we finally met in Tenerife, there was a talented young guy who did all skills very well and is now part of the autonomous divers. Congratulations again! We had 3 greats days with education, diving and some interesting topics e.g. the "flying industry". James, take care of you and the Blackstone Family awaits you - whenever you will be back. A big hug.

Fantastic dive center and fantastic crew. They did their absolute best to give us som good dives in locations we wanted ! Of course weather is a determing factor where to dive, but all i all a 5 star expirence. Safety first is the main thing in the divecenter and all what they do is within the customers limits and they guide you 100 % to commit safe dives.

I had an incredible good relaxing time with Blackstone Dive Center and it was a great privilege to get known each other and do some dives. I aim to come back some day ...

Before coming I received all necessary information by email from friendly Kerstin. All question were answered quickly and complete. The excellent costumer service made me decide to get in touch and meet them eventually.

Once picked up by BDC at hotel with clearly made timing over WhatsApp, I felt confident and comfortable. I can’t recommend them highly enough. In car to dive center I met Carlos, Tobias and the other day also Kerstin and Markus. I did 4 shore dives in total with SSI Assistant Instructor Tobias and SSI Instructor Carlos no doubt the best to dive with, most patience, professional and so relaxed for giving their clients the best time!

A very professional, small dive centre where all the staff are so helpful, have a good diving experience from start until end of the dive activities taking all security measures into account. The premises are extremely clean, organized facilities and all equipment are being rinsed and cleaned after the dives.

I was very happy to have been part of these beautiful diving family! I truly enjoyed it a lot!

Keep up this good work, thank you very much an see you all next time...

Dear Patrick. Even though a few weeks have passed since you have been with us at the diving center, your visit is still just as present as if it had been a few days ago. I was very pleased to answer your emails with the wonderful signature at the end, as I like to work in a structured way and it made it very easy for me to respond to your questions. You gave us a lot of leeway to plan your 2 diving days, even though you were only in Tenerife for a few days and had other activities planned. Among other things, the visit of the volcano Teide, where you always need to take into account that a sufficient break must be taken after the last dive. The diving professionals raved about you after your diving days and more than enjoyed their working day (which makes the boss doubly happy). Thank you for describing your stay with us in such detail and giving others interested in diving a good impression of what our Blackstone Dive Center is all about. It would be a great joy for us to be able to show you more of Tenerife's underwater world in the near or distant future. Until then, many great experiences in and under the water. Take care! Kind regards, Kerstin
