“Return visit”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Last dived with Abyss in September 2012 and we returned this year to complete your PADI Advance Open Water. Before I travelled we contacted the new owners Simon & Hannah and made some plans via email, and when we eventually met them (and intern Dave), we were made to feel very welcome. All the equipment is very well maintained and they will only dive with very small groups, so felt very safe and comfortable.

Every day we were picked up and dropped back to our hotel and everything was well managed and almost felt like you could just turn up, change into our wetsuits, do a briefing and then go dive.

We did two daytime dives followed by a night dive - which if the conditions are good then I would highly recommend as the sea really comes to life in the dark. We also completed a couple of deep dives which again where excellent. After the dives they provide coffee, water and cakes and we even got a photo editing lesson at a local bar which was a great way to get to know our hosts.

Really enjoyed every dive and had some great laughs, I would highly recommend diving with them and would definitley come back and dive with them again.

Please note that you do need a medical certificate to dive here, we had one completed in 5 mins, and a Drs office just around the corner from the dive shop which cost approx 25 euros or you can get one from your own GP - these last 2 years.

“Best dive centre on the island”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Team Abyss Fuerteventura are marvellous! They looked after us from day one, making sure we had everything we needed for a great holiday. Their dive centre is a friendly, first rate diving centre and their professionalism made sure that every dive was a great one but above all safe. Whether you want to fun dive or take a course, Abyss Fuerteventura is the dive centre to choose, divers of all ages and experience are welcome and I would recommend it to everyone to try it as part of their holiday to Corralejo.

Reviewed May 26, 2013

Many thanks to both Hannah and Simon, and also their DM Dave for making me so welcome at abyss, I had 2 great dives with them at El Jablito, although not deep dives very enjoyable, They have got a great diving mentality, always safety first then fun and laughter. Coffee and cake during our S.I. what a nice touch. Once again many thanks guys, keep doing what your doing and I dont think you'll go wrong. Will definately see you next time I'm on the island.

“Highlight of Holiday”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I just want to say firstly that I never usually bother with the writing of any reviews but after the diving experience with Simon and Hannah I actually feel compelled to do so. I been a complete beginner felt completely at ease for a finish (all be it after 1 or 2 very hairy early moments!) My partner who has done in excess of 20 dives and already had the padi license was overwhelmed at how knowledgeable easy going and PATIENT they were in comparison to other instructors she had especially given my earlier antics!

Hands-down life changing experience and as I write this am looking up to build on my first lessons with the guys with a local club in Ireland to get my padi and return in the future.

We wish both of you all the best- top notch day 11/10!
