My dad and I are both experienced divers, so we took our own equipment with us. The staff was really friendly, funny and good company. The owner and 2 staffmembers are british, so they spoke perfectly english. They took really good care of our equipment and since they believe in "lazy holidays", we did not have to carry anything ourselves.... More

Dive Academy Gran Canaria has everything, full kit-hire, dive insurance, a training pool, quick access to shore dives, a minibus for transfer to dive sites around the rest of the Island, and, above all else, friendly, polite and professional staff including locals and Brits. I enjoyed two dives in a single day, morning and afternoon, with a light lunch in... More

My partner (Haley) and I had the most amazing experience learning to dive in Gran Canaria with the Dive Academy. I had some fears and reservations about undertaking the course, but our instructor Facundo was incredible. Thanks to the support and instruction he offered I felt safe the entire time and was able to really enjoy our four dives in... More

The location, with own pool, makes this a good place to start your diving experience. And especially as the instructors are very friendly and guide you through the process in your own speed. Equipment was in good order.

We went with a group of two certified divers and two beginners. The beginners competed the discovery dive and they are excited about continuing. Matt and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Great times, we will come again. Ask fit a discount at the restaurant next door!

Very friendly and professional staff who not only teaches you in a great manner, guides you to the good dive sites and makes sure you're safe but also brings you coffee, cleans the gear after the dives and entertains, both in the water and in...

The Open Water Dive course at Dive Academy Gran Canaria was more than just learning how to dive. It was a complete experience and it was an amazing one. The academy aims to be a club more than a school and succeeds in it. This makes that you don't feel like a customer. The crew is very professional, they are... More
