A wonderful experience! Virginia is a super nice and helpful trainer. Since the course was not offered in German, I opted for the English course and it was worth it! (Basic English, so you can understand everything well). In the sea you can see a wide variety of fish, not quite as colorful as probably in the Caribbean, but still worth the experience. Nice to be part of the school of fish and to let yourself drift. We were a small group of 5 people with different languages, but it was totally fun! The time is also completely sufficient, because at some point you run out of strength and it can get cold at times. I would like to thank the whole team for the great experience, I would love to come back soon! PS: The entrance is a bit difficult to find as it is not signposted. Just wait at the blue door in C. Gran Canaria 4, the diving school is there

Private your felt not just private but very tailored, the instructor was just brilliant and took really good care of us taking into account that we were complete beginners and my 11 years old is not a super strong swimmer. We saw plenty of fish and had totally good time overall. Highly recommend.

Santi was an excellent instructor. Very thorough briefing/instructions. Helpful when needed, attentive to our needs during the experience. Would book daily if I was staying on the island overnight.

We had a wonderful time, the team is very attentive and gives good advice. The discovery of the seabed and its superb colors delighted us!

A great experience, simply beautiful and to be recommended! It's really fun and our guide was super nice!
