Underwater wonders for novices and experts.

Discover scuba diving in Tenerife

you want to make diving in Tenerife, you can do it in a multitude of enclaves along the coast along the entire coastline. In them you will enjoy different scenarios thanks to the volcanic nature of the island. Rock bottoms, sand and volcanic rock reefs, along with wrecks and shipwrecks, dominate the landscape.

For some reason, during the dive, stress stays on the surface.

Scuba diving is very common in Tenerife, you have all kinds of outings for different levels of difficulty. You will be able to observe varied and surprising submarine landscapes. Whether you have never dived before or you are a veteran who wants to get to know the deep sea around the island, there is a diving company for you in Tenerife. If it is your first time, there is the possibility of diving baptisms in most of the companies listed below.

Any time of the year is good for diving, but you have to take into account two factors: in summer there is a greater influence of tourists and you are more likely to have company diving. In winter, although the weather on the islands is usually good, the same cannot be said of the sea.

If the excursion is cancelled due to bad weather, you will be offered another day or your money back.
