diving in Tenerife

We went scuba diving in Tenerife

By Fábio, CTO at SeaBookings.

We went scuba diving in TenerifeSince a while ago I really wanted to try to go diving. I’ve had done snorkeling before, and, if you like snorkeling, to go diving was just a natural move. Carla, my wife, joined me for this unforgettable adventure.

This last month we’ve spent a week in Tenerife. The island is magical, having lots of raw places, untouched by man, and filled with life (well, unless you go to the top of the Teide, there isn’t much life up there). The warm weather, the astonishing landscape, the peaceful relatively warm water, made my mind.

Our experience first-time scuba diving in Tenerife

The diving experience we did is specially designed for people with no diving experience. It was my first dive, thrills and chills were going through my body (it’s not every day you will be 10m under the water for the first time!). The initial training, given by 3 great PADI certified instructors, was done at the beach, later completed with some in water exercises.

Is there a better place than this to try scuba diving?

We were READY to try scuba diving in Tenerife!

Going deeper under the water, I started to realize I was in a different world. A world with clear water, different kinds of mountains (it’s a volcanic island), lots of different fish,  the fantastic colours. I was surprised with the amount of sea life you can find here that the words lack to describe what you can only feel.

I was lucky enough to see a Trumpetfish… and even an Angel shark!

The feeling of low gravity is great!

These were some of the most memorable moments I can take from the memorable island of Tenerife.
