Our Course Director goes for a jolly with the Underwater Scooters

For what seems like no reason at all other than #fun #PADI Course Director Kim , took newly certified PADI #OWSI and #Divemaster Alicia out for a jolly on the #DPV (Underwater Scooters) around #Abades Bay.

After an hour they returned having been to the furthest edges of the Bay, Trumpet Fish Cave and down to some 25 meters.

A hugely enjoyable dive and with virtually no effort at all.

Our new PADI Instructor Professionals ready to take on the MSDT

After the excitement of the #PADI #IE where yet again we had a 100% Pass rate, and after a well deserved day off, the new #Instructors were back for yet more training.

To ensure our PADI Instructors are ready to get that all important first #scuba #diving job we provide them with #MSDT Prep.

As we have the only in-house PADI Course Director who can teach Instructors, and with more than 25 Specialties on offer the possibilities are endless.

We are now entering our 12th year of training PADI Pros in #Tenerife and we are not only the Official Number #1 PADI training Centre but also the most experienced, no-one has trained more PADI Pros than our Team.

Finally, back after his Staff Instructor course, Zeke from Granadilla Diving, was back to complete his PADI Search and Recovery Instructor Specialty.

It goes without saying, he successfully completed all the requirements, to add yet another PADI course to his already expansive offerings at his Dive Centre.

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 😀😎🐠

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 #IDC Instructor Development Course #Tenerife Day 6

A great opportunity for our PADI #Platinum #CD to show why she is the best at what shes does, with Workshops on CESA;s, Rescue, Knots and so much more.

Then the IDC Candidates really showed how far they come with exceptional training aids for the next KD presentations.

Awesome job Team.

PADI PROs showing how it’s done

This is why we are the best at what we do.

When taking students out for a night dive, in this case as part of an Advanced Open Water course, Night #Dive #Specialties and #Divemaster courses its not good enough to just do a night dive, what you need to do is see not 1, or 2 but 3 Angel sharks.

Now this could be because you are being trained by the ONLY PADI Elite 300 Platinum Course Director in the region or just good luck.

Either way there is a reason we are officially the number #1 PADI Dive Centre and imitated by many.

Be Trained by the best not an imitation.

Videos coming soon.

Kim Timmers – PADI Platinum Course Director

On Women’s Dive Day it’s important to give a nod to those women who make a difference and inspire in the industry.

We would like to give a shout out to our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!

To put that into perspective there are only 11 female PADI Platinum Course Directors in the world! She is also an Elite 300 Instructor and PADI Freediver Instructor and that’s just a little of what she has accomplished.

She not only has helped change the lives of many people through teaching (all of team here included) but her strength and continued motivation help to inspire us all. As a woman she’s a beacon for what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.

Thank you Kim for everything you do. We are lucky to have you.
