Diving in Tenerife with Aqua-Marina

We have been diving Tenerife since 1999, making Aqua-Marina one of the longest established dive centres on the island. We are popular with groups, individuals and families seeking a friendly and informal, yet professional environment.

Small group sizes on guided dives and courses creates an intimate and social atmosphere between our guests and the dive team.

Our team speak a variety of languages. Guests from many different countries find their needs catered for both above and below the waves.

These are just some of the reasons why so many guests keep diving Tenerife with Aqua-Marina year after year.

Steve & Madge

Madge and Steve Knight

Dive Center Owners

Looking for a lifestyle change, Madge and Steve acquired Aqua-Marina in 2004 and have built on the foundations laid by the original owner, who started the business in 1999.

With her background in office management, Madge takes care of administration and is likely to be your first contact with Aqua-Marina, whether you send an email, phone or call into the shop.

Meanwhile Steve will be found in the Wet Centre, looking after repairs and maintenance and generally keeping an eye on things and making sure everything is running smoothly. If you have a problem, talk to Steve – he can probably fix it, and if not he almost certainly knows someone who can!

Ines Bergstraesser

Ines Bergstraesser

Manager, Skipper, PADI Instructor

Ines came to Tenerife to attend University, but she loved it so much she never went home!  As a result, in addition to her native German, she speaks Spanish and English fluently.

She joined the Aqua-Marina team in 2008 and by the time the Manager’s position became vacant it was obvious that she was up to the job. She is our greatest multi-tasker, able to teach PADI courses in three languages, guide dives, drive the boat and generally oversee both the day-to-day and the long-term operations of the dive centre (although admittedly, not all at the same time!).

Ines has a wonderful approach to life, and her happiness is infectious – you’ll find yourself smiling within moments of meeting her!

Ray Vonk

Ray Vonk

PADI & BSAC Instructor, Boat skipper

Ray is our longest serving team member.  A Dutch national, he also speaks English and German fluently, and has a vast amount of experience teaching both recreational and Technical diving.

He loves all things diving and is our resident expert on dive gear, which is a subject he can talk about for hours on end.  If you are considering buying a new bit of kit then you should not consider parting with your money until you’ve discussed it with Ray!

His unique sense of humour never fails to lighten the mood at the dive centre and his calm attitude, passion for work and his encyclopaedic knowledge of all things diving ensures that his students always become experts in no time.  Our returning guests always ask when they’ll be diving with Ray!

Ben Hawkes

Ben Hawkes

Manager, Instructor

Ben always knew he wanted to be a diver. He learnt to dive as soon as he was old enough, aged 12, qualifying as a Divemaster (right here at Aqua-Marina) at age 18, and was an Instructor before he was 20.
He spent 12 years teaching people to dive in Australia, Thailand, Egypt, Indonesia and, of course, Tenerife. He speaks English and Spanish and is qualified to teach both recreational and Technical diving.
Ben is primarily responsible for our marketing although he also takes care of running the operations alongside Madge and Ines. He recently completely redesigned our website and is daily posting lots of pictures and interesting or amusing content on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and our Blog.
But diving is in his blood and he can never resist the urge to dive for too long so he still gets in the water whenever he can – normally with one of the loves of his life – his camera.

Greg Delmas

Greg Delmas

PADI Instructor

Greg left behind a career as an electronics engineer in order to pursue his true dream of diving for a living. Since then Greg has spent the last few years teaching people to dive in Thailand, the Philippines, Costa Rica and Malta.  He came to Tenerife in the middle of 2016 with his wife and young daughter, and immediately fit perfectly into our team.

He speaks English and Spanish as well as his native French, and whether teaching PADI courses or guiding dives, Greg is in his element in the water and never fails to impress his guests.
