  • Tenerife: 2 Diving Sessions for Certified Divers

    6. Tenerife: 2 Diving Sessions for Certified Divers

    You will be picked up at the hotel and brought to some of the best dive sites around Tenerife. Usually, the tour starts with dives by the shore but sometimes they start from the boat. There are many interesting places around the island for all levels from beginners to experienced divers. Be amazed by the volcanic rock formations and the multitude of marine species that you will meet during the dives: colourful fish, rays, turtles, barracudas, schools of fish, octopus, cuttlefish and lots of crabs and shrimps are amongst the animals that you can observe. The instructors will give you a safety briefing, and check your gear and then you will get wet and start your underwater exploration. At the end of the day you will be dropped off at your hotel. 

    The first dives were off the beach near the dive shop (primarily because I did not dive for a while). We saw more marine life than I expected which was nice (many various fish including a ray, clams). There were also a few interesting rock formations like arches and small caves. Vesko, the guide, was excellent. Very patient, thorough, and helpful. The logistics were great. Pickup, equipment, safety, etc. Everything was also well sanitized (COVID-19 days).

Unfortunately, jetskiing was canceled for technical reasons. But we were able to repeat it a few days later as compensation we received a lot of photos and videos for free download. We even saw beluga whales! You can also take a shower on site.
