Full description

Begin your adventure into scuba diving with a beginner's dive in Costa Adeje. Have a great chance of seeing Tenerife's beautiful marine life as you dive at a site known for its turtle population. Learn the basics of scuba diving and then float along on a snorkeling safari.

Start your journey to explore the underwater worlds of the oceans on a beginner's diving activity in Tenerife. Meet at the dive center in Costa Adeje and get a short information session with your instructor before your first dive. Dive to a depth of no more than 7 meters under the careful control and supervision of your PADI-qualified instructor. Experience what it feels like to breathe underwater and get closer to the sea life than you ever imagined possible. Then, go on a snorkeling safari in waters that have been voted some of the best in the world. See the diverse marine life of Tenerife as you explore a site populated by different fish and turtles. Look for whales and dolphins from the boat as you sail from one location to the next.

Finally, ride the boat back to the meeting point.

Was fantastic. The instructors were nice and to the point. Made understanding things pretty easy, walked you through step by step. Boat ride to and from was gorgeous. For first time divers: honestly, suppressing the reflex to breathe in from the nose was the hardest part. But we spent the first part of the trip kinda free roam snorkeling so we had a chance to get used to it. Only other thing I’ll mention for first time is pressurizing as you go down… PHEW! If I could have prepared at all it would have been for that. Personally, I’m sensitive to sound - not so much that it would ever be a real issue, but enough it was a struggle. They probably get it all the time, though. The instructor was very patience. I stayed calm, paid attention to his signals and he helped me stabilize. Once we were going there were some great sights. They pointed out interesting fish or formations. Half way through a huge sea turtle appeared and kinda hung nearby until we left.

Kann diesen Tauchkurs für Anfänger nur weiterempfehlen! Für mich war es das erste mal Tauchen und eine wirklich unvergessliche Erfahrung. Man hat die Chance die Unterwasserwelt von nahem zu begutachtet und viele tolle Tiere zu sehen. Mit ein bisschen Glück sogar ein paar Meeresschildkröten, aber auch ohne diese zu sehen eine unfassbare Erfahrung
