Learning to Scuba Dive is listed as one of the top ten things to do before you die!

If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course. Well this is for you, it allows the young of heart to experience the thrill of breathing underwater and exploring the underwater world accompanied by an instructor or certified assistant.

You have two choices

  • Discover Scuba Option
  • A Try Dive Option

Discover Scuba Option

In the dive centre our PADI instructors will help you understand the basic safety guidelines and skills you need to scuba dive, along an explanation and demonstration of how your scuba equipment works. Following this we spend 30-40 mins in the swimming pool, less than 5m from the dive centre doors, where you have a chance to practice and master some of the basic scuba diving skills which will allow you to complete the 2nd dive under the guidance of a dive instructor.

Following this we travel to the harbour (3min drive) and a 5-10 min boat ride to one of several dive sites we use for this introductory scuba experience. You will be under water for around 30-40mins, to a maximum 12m.

You need to allow about 5-6 hours in total from start to finish.

Cost €110 per person

Please note that you do need to be able to swim to do this, you don't need to be an Olympic class swimmer, but you do need to be comfortable in the water.

What do you need to bring? Swimming costume and a towel, along with a change of clothes, and a smile we provide everything else.

Note: Try Dives are resource intensive and no booking is confirmed until receipt of deposit.

"YOU NEED TO LEAVE A MINIMUM OF 12 HOURS BETWEEN A TRY DIVE AND FLYING, OR ASSENDING TO ALTITUDE GREATER THAN 600M. SO YOU CANNOT DIVE IN THE MORNING AND GO UP TO MOUNT TEIDE IN THE AFTERNOON OR FLY"
