It was an absolute highlight of our stay on this stunning island. Staff is extremely friendly, helpful and reliable. It was the first time we had tried scubba diving and we are so grateful that we discovered new skills through this fantastic underwater experience. :) Peter and Diana from Hungary

Had an amazing experience on the discover scuba diving experience at Dive Academy. Simon and the other instructors were extremely friendly and helpful throughout and it was for sure the best activity we did on the island. Hope to be back there soon to do the full course.

Our group of 5 experienced divers wanted a dive centre that could guide us around Gran Canaria on our first trip to the island and Matt, Matt and Si did that perfectly. We went for a 10 day package over 5 days and dived sites including Balto Bay, Sardina Del Norte and the Arona wreak. The diving was great with... More

My wife and I are qualified open water divers but hadn't dived for some time. We did a Scuba Review on the first day, and 2 dives the next. Throughout both days the focus was on safety and fun. The whole team are really friendly, and passionate about diving. The review was focused and very useful, and the guided dives... More

If you fancy giving scuba diving a try you HAVE to go and see these guys when you're out in GC. Forget all the 'try scuba' companies in the UK, the PROPER way of trying scuba is in the sea, and these guys let you do it. We watched a 30 min video, had a brief go in their custom... More

I went with friend during May 2016. Picked up from hotel, very friendly and patient staff. We watched a 20 minute DVD which covered the basic prerequisite knowledge and then we were in the pool for several hours. After a spot of lunch we then prepared for a diving session in the sea. Our instructor Facundo was friendly, knowledgeable and... More

WOW! What an amazing experience! I have never dived before, our instructor was amazing and patient!! One instructor between two of us made it a perfect experience. Starting off with the instructional video, then some basics before getting kitted up and practicing in the pool... Before a lunch break and out into the bay for proper SCUBA diving to about... More

Good dive centre, prices reasonable, well presented, staff friendly, helpful, professional. Initially my instructor, who was an excellent diver, didn't appreciate that we can buddy very close in the UK because of the poor conditions and tended to get ahead a bit whilst I was struggling to get my buoyancy right. Once we sorted that out it was more relaxed... More
