Gabriel teaches his first DSD!

Newly certified #PADI #Instructor Gabriel has been getting lots of experience on PADI #Scuba courses and this time he was out for a dive with Certified Diver Susie, whilst giving her Boyfriend Stephan, a PADI #DSD experience

The couple from #Germany had a fantastic time and Stephan is definitely hooked and can’t wait to get back in the water.

Also pictured are PADI #Divemasters Patrick and Ben who were on hand to assist.

PADI Digital Underwater Photography Specialty by Jason and Cameron.

2 of our #DMT spent the day learning about #photography and using cameras underwater.

Here are the finished results of a few of their images.

Not too bad at all for a first effort.

The new arrivals go out on some PADI DSD dives and check dives

So with all of our new arrivals we had some #PADI #DSD dives and Check dives to complete.

Obviously as we have the most amazing House Reef outside our Dive Centre that was our first destination.

With Assistance from #Divemasters we had a great dive around our Reef with one of our smaller #Turtles visiting us for a short while.

Well done to everyone and more images to come later.

Time for a warm welcome to Gabriel from Italy

Time for a warm welcome to Gabriel from #Italy .

He joins us as a #PADI #Rescue #Diver and is here to complete the #Divemaster program.

Also while he is here he wants to complete the #Deep #Diver #Specialty and Night diver too, so we will keep him busy.

This week he has been brushing up on his skills and getting to know the Bay before he is taken off “up North” for his Deep #dives.

We look forward to getting to know more about him over the coming weeks.

Join us for your Deep or wreck Specialty to become a PADI MSD

Just a quick catch up for the images taken on our many #Sealife Cameras supplied by #Scubapro

These were taken on a local #Wreck in #Tenerife which is full of life, but the 2 stars of the show are the “Dog” and the Wreck itself.

Join us for your #Deep or wreck #Specialty and you are on your way to becoming a #PADI #MSD

Marta gets to try some DUP in Tabaiba

Marta has been catching up on all her #PADI #Specialties since we reopened and next on the list was the #DUP

She joined PADI #CD Kim for some diving at Tabaiba and to get to grips with the various #Sealife and GoPro cameras we have available.

We think she captured some great shots, for her first attempt, and look forward to seeing more from her.

Time to blow out all of the cobwebs with some DVP’s and a DAD Specialty

Time to blow out all of the cobwebs and what better way than with some DPV’s and everyone’s favorite PADI Course Director, Kim.

To make the day special let’s add in 2 amazing #PADI #Instructors from Teide Divers, Nicole and Thom, who we became friends with when they completed their #IDC with us last year.

And to finish off, why not make it a Dive Against Debris so we can take #DMT Marta to finish her PADI #DAD #Specialty and become a PADI #MSD

After a very long, fun, exciting dive we were pleased to say that our House Reef at #Abades is still looking pretty pristine with only minimal debris.

Everyone had an amazing time with Marta saying it was her Best Dive Ever!!!

How could we argue with our favorite #Italian

All went well, even when Nicole thought she would try and make the Navigation harder … but even that Sandstorm couldn’t ruin the 40m+ visibility

An awesome day……. looking forward to many more 😀😎🐠

Time to blow out all of the cobwebs with some DVP's and a DAD Specialty

Lots of positive changes and exciting things to look forward too.

Back in the water after a long lockdown

As yesterday was World Oceans Day, it seemed the perfect day to get back into the water after the long #Lockdown here in #Tenerife

PADI Course Director Kim, Master Instructor Pete, #Divemaster Aidan and #DMT Marta spent the morning checking our House Reef and in particular the extensive Grass area that has grown exponentially in the last few months.

Overall we are happy with the condition of our Reef, but as was expected, the intrusion of plastic gloves and masks was evident.

As we are the only #PADI #Dive Centre, located at the beautiful #Abades #Bay , we have carried out many many Dives Against Debris and Beach Cleans ups over the years and it shows, as we have many other Dive Centers from all over the Island who spend hours travelling to visit, what we have on our doorstep.

We will be open and fully operational soon and will return to maintaining the dive site to its very high standards so everyone can enjoy our amazing aquatic world.

In the meantime it was great to get the Team back doing what they love… #diving

PADI Dive Against Debris

#DiveAgainstDebris

Interns out cleaning up our local bay on their #ProjectAware Dive Against Debris Speciality…

…They are constantly keeping the bay clean anyway so why not get a #Specialty to acknowledge it!

Diving Against Debris

Another 3kg of #debris collected from the bay.

It’s still shocking to find as much debris as we do in our Marine Protected Area. It’s about time that humans started to realise the consequences of their actions, and make the necessary change.

#WakeUp

Thanks to our Interns and other Divers who help clean up our mess. #OurWorld #OneOcean

PADI Divemaster Internship – Stamina

Most mornings the Interns do Stamina training as part of their Divemaster Internship…

…we must seem so heartless making them do it in these conditions! #LoveMyJob #LifeInParadise

PADI DPV Instructor Specialty – Richard and Jess

Richard racing a Sea Hare with a DPV, surprisingly the Sea Hare won!

Great day for a PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Instructor Specialty Course with PADI Instructor, Rich and PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, Jess.

Are you a PADI Instructor in need of Instructor Specialties? Book in with our full time Platinum Course Director Kim!

Angel Shark Sighting – Caught on Camera!

#AngelShark

A beautiful young Angel Shark spotted by Rich and Michelle in the bay!!! 😁😁😁We surmise from it’s behaviour that it was playing hide and seek with friends.

A rare and special sighting this time of year for this critically endangered species. 🦈

 

Diving in Abades Bay!

Just a few photos of our PADI Divemaster Interns and PADI Instructors from a mornings dive in Abades Bay – the Marine Protected Area on our door step! PADI Fish Identification and PADI Dive Against Debris Specialty dives for the interns.

It’s a hard life…

Newborn Common Rays in Abades

The first sighting of a new born Common Ray in the bay, with Mum keeping a watchful eye over her baby – even though they are born with full capability to fend for themselves after 9 months developing inside its mother! Abades Bay, a Marine Protected Area, is perfect for these sightings.

Captured by one of the Instructors out teaching skills to the Interns!

Project AWARE and Tenerife Diving Academy

Today is the 3rd Anniversary of us adopting our house reef as part of #ProjectAware.

This year with the help of our interns we removed 37Kg of #Debris from Abades Bay.

Thanks to all our little eco warriors #OurOcean #OneOcean #EveryDiveASurveyDive #NextMillion2020

Common Ray sightings in Abades Bay

Common Rays are out in abundance in the bay at the moment. After their 9 month gestation period, they are ready for their imminent new arrivals – and so are we!! Bring on the baby rays!

Some more Instructor Specialities completed for Mads, Charlotte, Maria and Ryan too! Congratulations to them all.

PADI Open Water Diver – David

Congratulations to Tommy on becoming a PADI Open Water Diver!

He has taken to diving like a fish to water!

Here he is on a #DiveAgainstDebris Speciality, moving towards Advanced Open Water whilst making a difference by cleaning up the bay!

PADI Night Diver Instructor Specialty

Looks like we have ourselves some new PADI Night Diver Speciality Instructors!

A lovely night for a dive and racking up the qualifications with another bunch of Instructor Specialities this week including #FishID #DiveAgainstDebris and #BoatDiver.

A Night Dive from the Surface

When on a night dive, did you ever wonder what you look like from the surface?

Well wonder no more…

Here is a shot of one of the Buddy Teams last night during their #PADI #Night #Dive #Instructor #Specialty at #Abades
