Highly recommend this dive company. As experienced divers we booked a 10 dive package with them and were not disappointed. From our first communications by email to their detailed dive planning , these divers are professional , friendly , and very well organised, Every dive offered something different , from big stuff like stingrays to beautiful small stuff like nudibranchs and octopus.Mega shoals of fish were a joy to be amongst and the underwater topography is great with swim throughs, arches and columns. We took our own kit which was looked after with great care after every dive , rental kit looked excellent and well looked after. The dive guides are friendly, helpful and full of enthusiasm, and knowledge . They clearly all love to dive and to share their favourite spots! Nothing was too much trouble - pick up and drop off from our hotel was brilliant and on time, and resources at the centre meant we could write up our dive logs with lots of animal and plant IDs . Would thoroughly recommend for both beginners and experienced divers .

I took a Divemaster course with Paradise Divers in Tenerife and it was an outstanding experience. I had taken my Rescue Diver course with them just a few months before so I knew already about their personalized approach to teaching and all around positive atmosphere.

Throughout one very intense month I had the chance to learn from a very dedicated, experienced, approachable and fun team. Right from the start I felt like part of the crew, whereas it was learning by assisting the instructors with students on PADI courses or with certified divers, shuffling through the different roles you can carry out as a Divemaster trainee.

Days were planned to account for the divemaster curriculum with theory classes and skills training/assessments; you learn the critical attributes for each skill and how to perform them to a level of control and demonstration. Debrief sessions happened often and through their always constructive feedback I could really feel my improvement and confidence as a diver rising from one day to the next, challenging myself to get better at a level I hadn't thought possible.

I did learn as well about underwater problem resolution, buoys and anchor deployment, the ins and outs of the boat, diving equipment and about compressor/tanks operation which turned out great to identify what good air smells/tastes and what's the process that aids in obtaining the best oxygen quality.

I can't thank Dan, Shona, Nicky and Dave enough; they lead by example when it comes to acting as a diver's mentor which pours into everything you learn during the course. All in all, I 100% recommend Paradise Divers as the perfect Dive Center to go further in your diving education.

Again Dan, Schona, Nikki as well as Peter did an awesome job.

I was here 3 years ago for the advanced open water and booked about 2-3 days in advance when I should really have booked a few weeks before. I was lucky there was space for me to attend. This just shows how busy they can get. For that review I think I left 5 stars as I couldn't fault anything.

This time I was there for the Rescue diver and EFR course which I contacted them about a week or 2 in advance. They informed me they would take a deposit as is the standard and give me access to the on line material. I received everything on time and started reviewing and so forth.

The reason I chose P.Divers first time is due to reviews on Trip adviser and it was easy to see why.

I fully recommend them for beginners, open water, advanced open water, rescue diver course and so forth.

They have their own access to a pool, gear for hire, boats. Their safety or pre-briefings on dives meets all the standards from a diver perspective.

They are easy to find as they are based in Tropical Hotel Park with a big sign that is hard to miss.

If it's your first time in Tenerife and you are a diver, this is the spot I would always highlight.

Again thanks to all the crew!

My partner, his mother and myself had an amazing experience with Dan & Shona.
We initially booked 4 boat dives and then added another 2 as we got to know them more.

They are very informative and love their jobs which makes the dive an even better one. Fun and easy to talk to.

I highly recommend their services. Absolute genuine people who have a love for diving and marine life !

A definite return customer :D

Just completed my Dive Master training with Dan and the team, and all I can say is"amazing!"
From day one I was treated as part of the team and shown how to prepare the kit, size it with the customers and then go out for the daily dives.
The tuition/mentoring was 1st class, each day was planned and laid out, and at the end of the day a 360 degree feedback session was carried out, to look at both positives and negatives, and how we as a team and individually can improve and thus make things even better for our customers.
The course was very well laid out and a structure was created to cover all aspects required (and many more that benefit you as a diver).
This was done over an eight week period based on 6 days a week, with weekly reviews to ensure timely execution.
I feel that now I have completed this training, that I am a much better diver, both in technique and awareness of other divers and their needs.
The course was quite strenuous and for a 64 year old quite challenging, however I was not given any special treatment and had to meet the high standards that Dan and his team work to.

In conclusion, I would like to say many thanks to Dan, Keiran and Shona for managing to teach an old dog a lot of new tricks, and looking forward to our next dive together.

David, it was a pleasure to be able to work with you to transition you from a pleasure diver to a fully qualified dive professional which you are now. As you know, our high standards are tough to get through but creates great and safe Divemasters and Instructors which we need out there. Age doesn’t matter, what matters is the effort and positive attitude students put in and you put 120% every single day. So a very well done and remember not to confuse the signals for shark and lead! 😜🤣

This was third time that we dived with Paradise Divers and we will for sure do more dives with this excellent dive center in the future. Thanks to Dan, Shona and Kieran for your hospitality and for giving us some memorable moments in the sea. Thanks for guiding us to see turtles, Atlantic rays, morray eels, octopus and lots of other crestures. This is for sure a fantastic dive center that we can highly recommend.

Paradise Divers is a PADI 5* dive centre and thoroughly deserves this status. Dan and Shona (full-time) and Nicky and Dave (part-time) form a highly recommended professional team doing an amazing job at keeping divers with a variety of experience safe and happy. We are older divers with 25 years' experience who are reasonably fit, but with a few limitations when it comes to climbing steps with heavy gear on. The service was very thoughtful, and the diving was excellent. We were lucky with calm sunny weather, but we're sure that it would have been an excellent experience whatever the conditions. We explored caves, swim-throughs, two wrecks and saw a huge variety of fish. Our own gear was cared for very well, and we never felt under time pressure when changing or kitting up.

Water was provided on the boat, and the boat returned to the marina between dives for use of the toilet facilities and for coffee and snacks. We had a packet of 8 dives each, with Nitrox and also invested in the photo offer. It was extremely good value for money, and we hope to visit them again. We certainly wouldn't consider any other centre for diving in Tenerife.

Prior to enrolling on the Open Water course, I'd already done 10-12 discovery dives worldwide, and had initially planned to do the same in Tenerife. However, when I visited Paradise Divers I not only saw how exceptionally professional they are, but also got such a good feeling about the people that I decided this would be the occasion that I finally did my qualification. Best decision I've made!

Kieran (my instructor), Dan and Shona are all absolute diamonds, incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and they are without a doubt the best organised company I've dived with. The quality of the education and the dive planning is top-notch, and I particularly enjoyed the morning briefings which not only ensure a smooth and safe experience but also really get you buzzing for what you're about to see. And you'll see plenty, as they have a superb range of dive sites and sealife to experience, including wreck dives, swim-throughs and all the good stuff! I even saw two angel sharks on day 1, not bad!!

I cannot thank Kieran enough. As mentioned, I've dived quite a lot before under supervision, but I feel 100 times more able and confident now that I've learned all the competencies. He makes a point of not just showing you HOW, but also WHY, which develops you into a much more informed and intuitive diver. He's very patient and structured, and I am already looking into when I can return to do my Advanced Open Water qualification with him.

I am so, so pleased that I took the course, and even more pleased that I did so with Paradise Divers. Please do the same, even if you've only considered it so far, and I guarantee you'll be recommending them to everyone just as I am!

Thanks again guys, you rock! Neil x

I had two dives with Paradise Divers in the end of April 21. Both dive sites were nice, but the second one (Moray Rock) stood out with big rays, moray eels, an octopus and a small wreck. Shona, our dive guide for the day, was very kind and professional. The dive center is very well managed, the booking of the dives is very smooth and Shona and Dan can be reached via WhatsApp at any given time. I even got my diving gear cleaned for pick up the next day. I can absolutely recommend Paradise Divers and definitely will go diving with them again on my next trip to Tenerife. Don't forget to check out their Instagram with lots of beautiful pictures and videos that make you want to go diving!

Having dived with Paradise Divers a few times before, it was great to come back and this time also do some training with them.

I really enjoyed and learned a lot with the Padi Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver courses, it’s given me more confidence as a diver but mainly being aware of what to do when others might be in need of assistance. I highly recommend these courses for all divers and Dan really goes the extra mile in practicing different rescue scenarios and taking the time to ensure you understand everything, all this in a safe environment and mixed with a good dose of fun.

If you’re looking for a Dive Centre in Tenerife, whether for Courses or Fun dives, don’t waste any more time researching, book with these guys - Dan & Shona will guarantee you have an awesome time.
