Diving Tenerife with Aqua Marina

The crystal clear water of the Atlantic Ocean, abundant marine life and dramatic volcanic rock formations mean that Tenerife diving frequently surprises and delights newcomers to the island. If you have yet to try diving here, a pleasant surprise and a very warm welcome await you from the Aqua-Marina team! The warm stable climate of Tenerife and water temperatures varying from 24C in the summer to 18C in the winter mean that we can offer year-round diving. We are open every day, making up to 3 dives from one of our RIBs.


For those who wish to try diving for the first time, Discover Scuba is on offer daily - a gentle shallow dive from the beach to a maximum depth of 6 metres, or a pool training session followed by a boat dive to 12 metres, perhaps to the famous 'turtle bay' otherwise known as El Puertito.


If you wish to start or further your dive education, PADI courses from Open Water through to Divemaster are run on request. Divemaster internships are available throughout the year, and for those who are serious about working in the dive industry an internship at a well established dive centre such as ours is the only way to go! Instructor courses are also organised 4 times per year, the next one starting on 14th May with a 2-day prep session, followed by EFR Instructor, then the IDC. Our IDCs are timed to coincide with the PADI Instructor Exam so that you go straight from training to exam with no time to forget anything!


With our on-site Nitrox compressor, Nitrox is readily available to those qualified to use it. If you are not already a certified Nitrox diver then we can train you in its use in just half a day. O2 is available to customise your mix or for divers using rebreathers. We also offer all the other standard PADI Specialties, with Nitrox, Deep and Wreck being the most popular. If you are not interested to become a PADI professional, perhaps you might aim for the highest non professional rating of Master Scuba Diver, achieved by gaining 5 Specialty certifications.



Making the most of your trip to Tenerife

If you intend to enjoy other activities apart from diving, let us help you plan your stay and avoid disappointment. Capacity is limited on many excursions and car hire options - it's wise to book ahead. For more details click here.

    Over the years we have trained many new dive instructors and their reasons for taking this step have been varied and numerous. Some are looking for a complete life change after years spent behind a desk. Others are developing their first career, having grown up knowing that diving is their passion and their future. Many are diving in their spare time and want to bring new members into th ...

    We have all seen them, many know what they are for... But, surprisingly enough...a lot of certified divers don’t have one. Many don’t feel confident about handling them, and/or don’t see it as a important piece of equipment. This was my case too, until I began to work in the dive industry! A Service Marker Buoy (SMB) serves for various purposes: ...

     Moray eels have very poor eyesight and depend primarily on smell using their two paired sets of nasal openings (nares) to locate prey or mates or to avoid predators. Water passes into the first nare just above the front of the mouth and along a canal lined with olfactory sensors before exiting from the second nare located near the eye.Their gills are located on their sides, far beh ...

Duiken op Tenerife
Eind september heb ik 2 x 2 duiken gemaakt bij dit duikcentrum. Alle lof voor de begeleiding en adviezen. Nog nooit zo'n mooie, schone ruimte waar je kon omkleden, douchen e.d. Een aanrader :)
