What people are saying about Tenerife

Straight forward to find in puerto colon. Spent 15-20 mins indoors being given information and taught some scuba basics. We filled in a form each and got into wetsuits. 20-minute boat ride off the coast we spent some time snorkeling before diving. Diving was great - all instructors spoke good english and were friendly. Spent roughly 15 mins diving, the rest of the time was then spent snorkeling more. I wish we could have scuba dived a bit longer, but it was still great. I'll definitely be back again next year.

We had an amazing experience myself and my partner. The instructors were very helpful with everything. Really recommend it.
