Whilst on holiday in Tenerife I wanted to do my PADI Deep Dive course as well as some fun dives. From the moment of entering the dive centre and meeting Salvatore & Alessandra, I knew I had picked the right place! I took my own dive gear but could see the hire kit looked new and decent set ups. On completing the deep dives Salvatore really gave me confidence to enjoy the deeper depths. On the fun dives it was two dives a day, both in different locations giving you full scope of the amazing underwater scenary/life that Tenerife has to offer. Salvatore has an extremely calm manner and his passion for diving and the ocean is clear. During the dives you would see him slightly detour..and he would then without fuss collect left fishing lines or human rubbish from the seabed. My admiration for him as a dive ambassador was tenfold because of this. With his mentoring during the dives I reduced my weight from 8kg to 6kg and improved my air consumption..despite in his words 'I was a serial killer of air'!! 🤣 Without doubt I would recommend this dive centre to anybody..and have already done so to my own dive club in the UK.

We dived with Scubafriends from August 21 to 25 with our own equipment. Salvatore, the owner of the dive center, chose the best dive site every day depending on the weather conditions. As a result, we have made beautiful dives in ideal conditions. The underwater life in Tenerife is very beautiful, not only did we see turtles, moray eels, octopuses, sepias, pufferfish, stingrays, angelsharks, but also the rock formations and the vegetation on them were beautiful. We could see all this beauty at a depth of up to 15m. That was optimal for our group since our daughter is 14 years old and is therefore not allowed to dive deeper yet. Salvatore also paid extra attention to our daughter's well-being while diving. In addition, the group of divers never exceeded 5 people. That also meant that Salvatore could always perfectly assess what the group could handle and how each dive was a unique experience. The equipment was cleaned and dried in the club.

Salvatore is a great professional and a great person! His knowledge of each of the sites and attention to details greatly helped us see the stunning beauty of the underwater world in Tenerife. Many thanks to Alessandra for helping us come back after each day of diving.

Our next dive in Tenerife will definitely be back with Scubafriends!

Amazing experience! We did Try Dive and saw at least 10 different kinds of fishes and were able to swim between them at Playa de las Vistas.
We were diving for the very first time but Salvatore explained everything in a clear and friendly manner. I would totally recommend it for everyone who is interested in sealife & wants to start diving but also to anyone who is looking for adventure and new experiences.
We hope to do it again next summer :)

I did my PADI Advanced Open Water with Salvatore and loved every second of it! Salvatore is a brilliant instructor and person - I felt totally safe diving with him and had a lot of fun, learning new things along the way from such an experienced diver! It was also great to have photos and videos provided after each of the dives. The Scubafriends shop is lovely and new, and likewise the equipment, and I highly recommend diving with Scubafriends to anyone looking to experience the delights of Tenerife’s waters!

We had an excellent diving experience with Scubafriends, I would absolutely recommend it to anyone in Tenerife who is looking for a opportunity to dive (also beginners). Salvatore is a very experienced and passionate diver. We even got free videos and photos as a parting gift. We will defintely come back for another dive when back in Tenerife.

He makes theory come to life under the water at a very fantastic manner.

We tried diving for the first time and started our experience with PADI Open Water Course at Scuba Friends. It turned out to be the perfect place for it. We had a great experience and got in love with diving for the rest of our lives!!!
Great location and new equipment. All equipment was disinfected after each use and ready for the next day.
Salvatore is a very experienced instructor, cautious and attentive to security measures. We felt very safe during the dives and managed to see many interesting animals under the water.
Great expertise and atmosphere!!! Thank you for your passion for diving!

While on holiday in Tenerife, I wanted to try SCUBA diving for the first time and I could not have picked a better team than Scubafriends Tenerife. Salvatore immediately put me at ease as he talked me through the process. After finding the right size of suit and equipment in the shop itself, we then set off to the dive site, only 20 minutes or so away. Salvatore keeps the diving groups small so there's more attention to individual needs. After more instruction, I was ably guided by Tatyana as we got suited up then went into the water to start exploring the cove. We saw a green turtle close up (see photo), lots of different species of fish and the entire experience was nothing short of fantastic. After the dive, we enjoyed some supplied light refreshments before heading back to the shop.
I'm getting on a bit in years and was worried I may have left it too late to start SCUBA diving, but this experience has shown me that in the right hands, anything is possible. Thanks to Salvatore, his family and Tatyana, I had the best introduction and am already planning a return trip once I get a few more lessons under my belt while at home.

We did 4 dives with Salvatore and Fabio on our holiday and it was an awesome experience! Every dive was different in terms of scenery and sealife.

The diving center and its equipment are modern, clean and professional. Salvatore and Fabio take their time to explain things, are very relaxed, but also thorough and professional. They made us feel very at ease and without worry. Apart from that they were fun company to spend the day with!

All in all I would recommend anyone to dive with Scubafriends!

It was our first diving experience. Salvatore was very lovely and experienced. We took a short course when he explained to us how to use the equipment and got us familiar with signals which to use underwater. I was a bit panicking from the begining but Salvatore was very calm and patient. I was squeezing his hand for the whole time underwater and was feeling very safe with him. I highly recommend Salvatore and would definitely do it again!
