We work in small groups to ensure more relaxed diving by providing maximum guidance from our experienced team.

Non-divers, Go Pro and divemaster internship

Is SCUBA diving an experience you have never experienced, why not sign up for a gentle introduction with our Discover scuba diving try dive.

Sometimes the idea of SCUBA gear is a little too much. Then come on one of our South Tenerife snorkeling trips.

Do you want a dream to become a reality, then “Go Pro” and check out our incredible, second to none Divemaster Internship training program.

Already a divemaster? Then join us in one of our high quality IDC´s and/or Instructor specialty courses given by our Course Director.

Technical diving

Our experienced dive team offers divers with tech diving certification the opportunity to explore the deeper dive sites off our incredible volcanic coastline in Tenerife.

Challenging conditions

Because of the volcanic shaped topography, we can reach a depth where you can encounter beautiful black coral, gorgonians and some breath taking marine life. Deep diving in Tenerife can be challenging due to strong currents, so experience and professionalism in these conditions is a must.

Our L&W compressor and gas filling equipment is approved by the Gobierno de Canarias- Consejeria de Empleo, Industria y Comercio and offers a full range of technical diving gases including nitrox, trimix and oxygen.

For the dives, we have available for rent Scubapro regulators, wings and sidemount systems. We have both double 10’s and double 12’s steel cylinders and for decompression cylinders we use 80cf’s. For rebreather divers, we can arrange sofnolime on request.

Explore together with our team dives sites known only to a few!

Technical courses

The technical diving courses what we offer are tailored to meet the high standards of PADI´s TecRec and IANTD, International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers.

Not only certified but also qualified

We at Aquarius have conducted technical training for over 20 years. Nearly all of the training dives what we conducted in the past were done in limited visibility and cold-water conditions. Drawing on this experience will be an added extra for anyone doing their training with us.

Do you want to lay the fundamentals or go further in technical diving? We will teach you the knowledge, techniques and procedures which are set to dive with demanding equipment and challenging environments, without compromising the diver’s safety.

Our concept is simple, we guarantee that you will get all the necessary knowledge and skills to become a qualified (technical) diver. There are no shortcuts in our training programs and we teach beyond the book while respecting the agencies procedures and standards.

Are you ready for second to none training, adventure and fun? Contact us.


We provide pick-ups from hotels that are situated between El Medano and Callao Salvaje.
