We are pleased to announce that our award winning PADI IDC Centre is a 100% Project AWARE Dive Centre in Tenerife. So what does this mean? It means for every single course that is run through our dive centre that we donate 10 Euros to Project AWARE. We also offer divers the opportunity to take part in a free Marine debris clean up dive. Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time. We’re ocean heroes numbering in the millions across the globe. We believe together our actions will make a huge impact and will help to rescue the ocean.
There is a wonderful diversity of aquatic life to be found in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean that surrounds Tenerife. At the varied sites that we visit from either the boat or shore you can find a variety of different species of fish including, Barracuda, Trigger Fish, Trumpet Fish and Scorpion Fish. There is plenty of colourful life to be found here. You can find a selection of larger aquatic life at the dive sites that we visit including; Black, Brown and Fangtooth Moray Eels, Green Turtles, and Butterfly Rays, Stingrays and Marbelled Electric Rays. Sea Horses can also be found and we are lucky to have Angel Sharks here too.
