What Our Customers Say…

“Friendly staff, good dives” We just got back from a week on Gran Canaria during which we did 6 dives with Jerry and his staff and we enjoyed them all. We had been diving before so joined the boat dives on a couple of days. Jerry picked us up in Puerto de Mogan and he and his staff were always helpful and making sure that we were ok.

“Friendly and fun!” The staff was so lovely and friendly! I was a little nervous i had not done scuba diving before, but after a while in the pool with the instructor i felt totally at ease! I was made to feel like a friend rather than a customer. Cannot wait to go back there and give it another go, thanks guys!

“bucket list : √” These guys were really friendly and welcoming, yet also earned my absolute trust and confidence that I was in good hands. They have a freaky skill in making your fear go away. I still can't quite believe I did scuba diving without even a hint of panic. Highly, highly recommended.

“wonderful diving experience” Had my first, long awaited, diving experience this week in with Jerry and the team and Canary Diving Adventures and was not disappointed. The great instructor and support crew gave confidence from the start but made it an enjoyable day as I completed the dives and assessments to get my PADI Scuba Diver award. I am now hooked and hope to get in more dives this week to achieve the Open Water qualification.

“Great experience” Went on a vacation with my girlfriend. She wanted to make 4 dives for her Open Water certification (referral) and we found Canary Diving around the corner. There where English, German and Dutch instructors that all love to dive and love to teach it to others. Definitely would recommend this diving school/shop to others!
