Me and my daughter took the Padi Open Water certificate at this diving center. Before we arrived we finished the theory online with Padi eLearning, so we only had to take a quick rewiev at the diving center after pool training and 4 open water dives. We had a diving instructor from Finland called Teija. She was calm, helpful and... More

We were there for snorkeling. It was our first snorkel trip and really enjoyed with the Dive Academy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We went back for another snorkel trip on next day :) Highly recommended activity if you are on Gran Canaria. Choose the Dive Academy for a safe and unforgettable dive or snorkel adventure!

Great intro to scuba diving and we even graduated to a dive in the Atlantic! It was a session with just the two of us and an instructor using swimming pools.

My friend and I completed the 'discover scuba diving' experience on our holiday in Arguineguin. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and there was nothing in the briefing that was unclear. We had a very successful first dive in the ocean, after learning all the skills in the pool. We will definitely be doing our dive qualification next!

I can guarantee that at the end of the diving I would've slapped a 5 star review on this. However later on that day I thought about the whole experience and things didn't quite add up. Now let's start with the highlights: me and my mum have been picked up from the hotel on time, we've been brought to the... More

I wanted to complete the Open Water Diver Course during my holiday on Gran Canaria and am absolutely happy with choosing Dive Academy Gran Canaria. The morning at the Center started with a coffee offering the possibility to have a chat and get to know each other. The theoretical and practical parts of the course have been teached very professionally... More

Whilst on holiday I took the opportunity to sneak in a couple of dives. After the first two dives which were done with Simon on the wrecks at Mogan, I just had to go again! Second two dives at the marine reserve with Matthew were brilliant !! Massive schools of yellow snapper , 3 octopi and a lovely bta anemone... More

We have just completed two excellent dives on the Morgan wrecks with Dive Acadamy Our guide Simon took great care of us and conducted a brilliant tour of both wrecks. We observed the yellow submarine visit at the same time as our dives and had waves and pictures taken of us which is really nice. Numerous species of fish seen... More
