"Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice" - Anton Chekhov.
At Tenerife Scuba our goal is to train people to become safe, confident divers.
Theory is important as it forms the basis of the physical skills you learn during any course. Like any skill though you get good at it by practice and repetition which is called “Going Diving” Just because you have done a course, got a card it doesn’t make you’re a better diver. Maybe What you need to do is get some more experience!

Tenerife Scuba, has numerous mentions in the diving press, diving forums and social media and travel forums. We are very proud to have made the Trip Advisor "Hall of Fame" with five years consecutive certificates of excellence .
Tenerife Scuba’s dive center is located within the Hotel Marino, a 4 star Aparthotel in Costa del Silencio, just a few minutes’ drive from Las Galletas harbour where Tenerife Scuba’s boat is moored.
Not only do Tenerife Scuba’s customers have access to all the hotel facilities, bars and restaurants but also its heated main swimming pool only a few meters from Tenerife Scuba’s front door.
This makes the confined water training sessions for scuba diving training and introductory scuba diving courses, such as the “PADI Open Water” or “Discover Scuba Diving” easy and comfortable for trainees.
No cold pools, No long walks across beaches or rocky shores!
All in all it’s an ideal place to start your Diving in Tenerife adventures.
"If you are a doing continuing education course, Advanced Open Water or beyond why not give yourself a day before you start the course and have a pre-course diving day."
Even experienced divers, who dive regularly, when they change diving environments/locations they know it will take couple of dives to settle down and fully relax. There is a lot going on maybe they are using different equipment than they are used to, the need to get weighting sorted out and all dive centers run slightly differently.
So why not make you life easy and get the most out of your course.
We couldn't help ourselves but celebrate Ian and Trevor 100th dives in true Tenerife Scuba style !
