Diving Tenerife with Aqua-Marina
We have a selection of dive sites of differing depths and difficulty levels – something to suit everybody. Due to the volcanic formation of the island there are many striking geological features to enjoy, from towering columns of basalt rock (think: Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway) to caves and swim-throughs formed by rapidly cooling lava or pockets of gas.
Other areas provide sheltered sandy bottoms in which we may enjoy diving with turtles, giant stingrays and Angel Sharks – a species which is globally under significant threat but which we are lucky enough to see whilst diving Tenerife. You can read more about the resident marine life here.
We are diving 365 days a year! We only close on 25th December and 1st January. We meet at 9am each morning and make at least two boat dives, finishing up by 3pm. There is always the option for a third dive and/or a night dive whenever you like.
Our dive boat is a 7.5 metre RIB, permanently based in the marina at Los Cristianos which is just 5 minutes away from the dive centre in our minibus. From there, almost all dive sites are less than 15 minutes boat-ride, so journey times between the dive centre and the dive site are very short.
Between dives we enjoy a leisurely surface interval at a chiringuito (beach bar) right next to the marina. For those only making one dive, you will be offered transport back to the dive centre as soon as your return to land. Whenever you finish diving you can choose to come back to the dive centre with us; or stay in Los Cristianos to enjoy the beaches and many shops and restaurants which characterise this eclectic town.
Occasionally we make shore dives along the coast allowing us to access dive sites out of the range of our boats, such as the beautiful wreck in Tabaiba, near Santa Cruz.
Come and dive with us to see what diving Tenerife is really all about!
