“Good training and selection of dive sites”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

If you are staying in Golf del Sur or in the immediate vicintiy, the Amarilla Dive School is not only convenient but it provides award winning training. The equipment is good and appears to be well maintained. The insructors are good and have plenty of empathy, especially for the younger and inexperienced divers. The owners are English and so for English divers there are no language difficulties. They do speak Spanish fluently. Most of their dives are shore dives, but as they drive to the dive sites, some 30 km or so west and north of the school, they can usually find a dive site with good visibilty no matter what the weather. For best use of time I did two dives a day. Boat dives are available but have an extra charge for the boat.
All the people I dived with at Amarilla were tourists and the school looked after them well. I did six dives and enjoyed them all. As I stayed in Golf del Sur, the school was very conveniently located, as it was only a 10 minute walk.

“Amazing Dives”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Amarilla Divers are very well run diving operation, located close to excellent diving sites. Mary and Neil are very friendly as are rest of the stuff. Neil knows all the diving spots like a palm of his hand. Not to be missed dive with rays is just of the beach in front of the dive centre. I do recommend to all level divers.

“Good Dive Company”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I did 4 dives with them and they were great. I saw a turtle a couple minutes into my first dive! Neil and Mary were very professional and accommodating. If you're looking to scuba dive in Tenerife, I recommend diving with them!
