We saw Orion's nebula, Andromeda galaxy, Mars, Jupiter and its moons, major visible constellations and associated mythology. What's not be wowed by? Thank you Miguel and your team. We've thawed out now and are still talking about it

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!
