This was our first scuba dive and it was a great experience for me and my wife. We are a bit scared at first but Martin & Yuri made us relaxed. At the end we went upto 11 meters and for good 45 mins. We were given instructions and demonstrations before and the team are very clear and professional. We are now a lover of diving and will try again very soon. Media files made by the team from our dive was great and we got them at a good price. If you are looking to try diving OLA diving centre is for you.

This was my second time diving with Ola Dive center. I did 14 dives this visit and loved everyone of them. You will have heard the expression, "Come as a guest and leave as a Friend". This is 100% true with Martin and the Ola Dive Center. They picked me up in the morning and returned me to the apartment after diving in the afternoon, if I was not meeting my wife on the beach. I dived Tenerife a few years ago and was not much impressed. But since since meeting Martin in 2018 I have change my mind so much I returned to Ola dive center for my 2019 holidays and Martin did not let me down. Martin took me an a variety of dives Wreck, cave, creature, shore and boat diving and I loved them all. Thank you Martin. (Thanks also to Morat (Guessed the spelling) Divemaster, a very quite guy with amazing buoyancy control, and I am in instructor. He looked after me on some of the more challenging dives, he stayed so close and yet no collisions. I should mention here that their dive boat is the only one I know on the island that has a toilet, a massive bonus when you are advancing in years and you if you are Dry suit diving. (Not that the water is cold, 21/22 C while I was there). When I dived with them in 2018 the boat master was Yuri a great guy and impressive Free diver. This time Yuri was on holiday so it was Toran (again spelling guessed). A really nice guy with an amazing amount of local knowledge regarding dive sites and sea states. I feel really lucky to have found this dive Center.

We did ten dives over five days. The dive shop is excellent. Martin (owner) and his crew (pardon the spelling) of Uria and Maurad also do a great job. All three are excellent dive leaders. In fact, Martin is one of the finest divers I have met. Nothing phases him and with every dive, he was trying to help us get better. We are both advanced divers. And Uria…….. he wears an 8mm semi-dry suit but does not use weights. How good do you need to be to do that! Our dives were at the end of November. The water was ~72F. We wore a 6mm wet suit, gloves, and hood. We were fine. Although, a 7-8mm would have been a little warmer. Dive sites were good, the boat is excellent…..AND HAS A TOILET! Martin also picked us up each day at the hotel and brought us back at the end of the dives. If you are in Tenerife and plan to dive, Ola is the dive center to use

Writing this review as a witness. Whilst I was guiding 2 clients this afternoon on Pal-Mar wall, towards the end of the dive I was looking for the resident turtles to allow my clients to have the opportunity to enjoy the reason we usually go to that dive site. I had spotted one of them, surrounded by two divers with big camera setups. Swimming towards them, we suddenly saw the turtle swim away in “high speed mode”, it then did a loop and came back for the same diver that was placing another mask on his face (assuming the turtle had bitten his mask and pulled it off his face (but I am not certain about this as I was too far in that moment) Whilst clearing his mask the turtle was right in front of him (didn’t touch the diver) to get a full blow punch on the bottom of its shell close to the neck. The turtle swam exactly in the same manner it did (in high speed mode) before, concluding that it was its second punch it had received by the diver. The turtle didn’t return for a third round and swam off. Both my clients and I witnessed the second punch it received. Once returning to the surface, there were only 2 boats on the the dive site, ours and the one of Ola Diving. This is completely unacceptable behavior and should be looked into by management immediately. When diving, we are entering the home of the species living underwater and thus should respect their natural habitat. A turtle shell was not made to be a punching bag of a frustrated diver.
