Breathtakingly beautiful experience!!! First of all a thousand thanks to Raffaella and Ron. There were two of us and it was our first dive. I had the feeling that I had known the two for years. Raffaella and Ron are super welcoming and totally likeable diving instructors, with a lot of patience and fun. The briefing was short but detailed. The mood was great and Ron always has a funny saying in store. We felt very well cared for. Arriving in the water, Ron gave us a lot of time and we were able to relax and get used to the equipment and swimming with it. Under water it was just as relaxed. Ron is a great diving instructor who takes his time and you can switch off and fully enjoy the peace and the underwater world. The photos and video recordings turned out absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, the time passed far too quickly. Only positive experiences and definitely worth a recommendation.

Diving from the beach (and not the boat as described): our instructor explains the reasons for this and after testing, we can only thank him! The instructor rightly: Erion: recommended! Super friendly and who takes the time to explain everything to us on land and to guide us wonderfully underwater! First diving experience and you can't ask for better. Thanks!

One of the best experiences that I've had. They were so polite, understandable and provided answer to every question we asked. Our instructor adjusted to our pace and watched over us during the whole dive. Hope I can come back to Tenerife to dive again! I recommend this experience for everyone that wants to try diving for the first time

Instructors were really helpful and professional. Environment of the process was super friendly and safe

Amazing, instructor very professional and kind. Thanks for this fantastic experience .
