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.

During our first holiday in Tenerife it seemed like fun to go snorkeling with the family in the hope of seeing sea turtles. Our hotel had made a reservation for us at Ola Diving Center, it was a super good experience from start to finish. We were picked up by Raoul and his girlfriend and on arrival at the diving center we found out that the hotel had misinformed the diving school. They were under the assumption that we were going to dive, but their flexibility made it possible to adapt the diving to snorkeling in no time. All supplies were taken care of, the transfer back and forth to the harbor was arranged, the boat trip to the snorkeling spot was great AND upon arrival at the dive spot several sea turtles were waiting for us ;-). Swimming with these beautiful animals made it an unforgettable morning. After this incredible morning we were brought back to our hotel and since we liked this so much we immediately booked our 2nd trip with Raoul, later this week we are going to spot dolphins and whales at sea. An absolute must to book your experience at this diving school: fun, good service and very good value for money.

I had booked a snorkeling trip, but nobody showed up at the meeting point. After 20 minutes waiting and a couple of phone calls they told me they had made a mistake with my reservation and offered a refund or joining an activity with another company 5h30 later. Unfortunately this didn't work for me and I wasted the morning on my last vacation day. The activity looked good but given my bad experience I can't recommend.

I am happy with the experience Ola diving centre provided. The guys where great! The only disappointment is that I paid for photos to be emailed to me by Gabi-diving instructor, however after nearly two years asking her via number of emails and phone calls to the centre she still did not sent me those photos. So the only think I would say, if you purchase photos make sure they email the photos to you while you at the centre. Do not leave before that otherwise you paid for nothing. ( the question when did I go doesn’t gives me more options so I had to press May 2023) but it was 2021/22

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

I didn’t pre-book I my diving before going on holiday to Costa Adeje Tenerife instead I took a walk around Puerto Colon Mariner area and visited the usual dive operators. Out of chance on my way back to our apartment I noticed OLA dive shop set back from the road. I went in and had a chat with the guy behind the counter. I got a good feeling for the guy so I booking for a few dives.
The guy was Martin Sekel one of the dive shop manages, he is as passionate as me about diving so I spent nearly every day diving with him, absolutely fantast. The diving is different to the Caribbean or Red sea and such like places with all their corals and pretty colours but none the less Diving Southern Tenerife very enjoyable with plenty to see.
It was Martin that made the diving so good, his local knowledge and enthusiasm, exploring and poking around not like some guides where you spend most of your time gulping up your air just trying to keep up with them.
Thank you Martin, absolutely what I needed.
One other Massive bonus is the dive boat at the time of writting is the only one in the area with a toilet. The toilet is big enough to get changed in.
Sea temperature was around 19C on the bottom.
I have heard of the Thermoclines around Tenerife, it maybe the time of year but I didn’t experience any significant thermoclines.
I would recommend a 7 mm Semidry along with Hood and boots. I used a 5mm Semidry with a shorty on top with hood and boots which did me fine.
Thanks also to Sasha the boat driver, very good and very observant.

Best review I think I will ever write... Booked this through a little excursion shop. I have never done scuba before but my boyfriend had. He didn't think it would amount to much but thought it would be great for me. Picked up from the hotel, on time, great. Went to the shop for a little 'training' and equipment, run through of the day etc. All in good detail. Very relaxed. We were extremely lucky as usually 14 people attend this trip, but on this particular day, we were the only 2. I would have thought it to be cancelled but no, all just for us. Yuri was INCREDIBLE. He was with us start to finish, pick up, training, kitted us up, took us to the boat, drove the boat and dived with us taking photos and videos under water. I panicked slightly at first, he kept me calm and was so patient. So helpful, friendly and completely amazing at his job. We saw soooo many types of fish, octopus, and even swam/petted two turtles. It was the most amazing experience ever. We also paid the 25 euros for the memory stick with all the pics and videos, just viewed as we got home today, amazing!!! I know we had a kind of special treatment as we were lucky enough to be on our own, but I couldn't recommend this place enough. Thank you so much, this trip truly made our holiday.
