I went today and I did the discover diving package for 80€. Nacho was my instructor. A sweet and easy going guy. He will make sure you are very comfortable and will walk you through all steps. We spent 45mn under the water. Unfortunately the area had no coral or amazing views. But we did catch few colorful fishes.

We had an awesome snorkelling safari with the best guide there is: Nacho from the Dive Academy Gran Canaria! Despite the fact that only one out of three participants know how to swim, Nacho made this a very pleasant day! Also his calm and patient manners were of great value 💛😊 We will most definitely be snorkelling with him again... More

Simon and the team took care of our 14 year old daughter's dream to become a SCUBA diver during our stay in Gran Canaria. She was in safe and professional hands and although the course can be demanding she thoroughly enjoyed every moment. For anyone considering a course I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Dive Academy. And... More

After doing a pretty unprofessional dive excursion in Lanzarote a few years ago, I decided that I wanted to learn proper diving this year while staying in Gran Canaria for a week with my parents. There was a problem with the administration at first, and I couldn't do my course the day we'd booked, but it turned out to work... More

Before we came to Gran Canaria with my love, we had planned to go and try scuba diving beforehand. I had read a lot of reviews about different kind of scuba diving centers and after some research, we decided to come to Dive Academy Gran Canaria in Arguineguín. We had chosen the right place. After a warm welcome and a... More
