Welcome to Dive Academy Gran Canaria

Welcome to Dive Academy Gran Canaria - Dive Academy Gran Canaria

Dive Academy is a Padi 5 Star IDC Dive Center and Gold Palm Resort. Its also Europe's most southern Scuba Diving Centre. We are situated in the south of Gran Canaria on the sea front in between two bay shore dives, they are both just a short walk from the centre. Dive Academy has multilingual Instructors and staff. Everyone is welcome at Dive Academy and our aim is for all our guests to enjoy their stay, be safe and most of all have lots of FUN.

Dive Academy Gran Canaria is the only scuba diving centre on the island with its own, private training pool! This swimming pool is the perfect place for all divers to learn scuba diving or practice their skills. Qualified diver or beginner, in our swimming pool you get all the time you need to learn the confidence building skills. For our very young divers (kids from 8 to 10) we do the Bubblemaker course in our pool. So, from Bubblemaker course to Instructor course, the swimming pool is the safest place to make your scuba diving adventures.

At Dive Academy Gran Canaria we are equipped with a comfortable new 9 seater minibus. With this minibus we go all around the Island to find you the best shore entry dives available. We also use this minibus for our "no hassle, free of charge" pick up service. If you book a day scuba diving at Dive Academy and need transport because you are staying in a hotel in another town or resort... no problem. We come to your hotel to pick you up and take you back after a great day’s scuba diving. This service is free of charge.

At Dive Academy Gran Canaria we are also equipped with our own boat, which is a 7.5 meter long RIB. With this boat we take you to all the scuba diving sites around the south of the island, which you cannot reach from shore. On the boat there is enough room for 12 divers with full equipment. It carries full emergency equipment, first aid and oxygen systems, including VHF radio and emergency procedures.

We run daily dive trips by boat and shore for the already qualified scuba divers. We will take you to the best dive sites the island has to offer, including wrecks and reef. We are the only dive centre on the island, which dives the whole of Gran Canaria, from Sardina Del Norte, The Las Palmas Wrecks, El Cabron the Marine Reserve in Arinaga and the boat dives in the south. We have lots of marine life around the island including rays, angel sharks, turtles, morays, octopus, cuttlefish, trumpet fish, trigger fish and thousands of reef fish. Why not check out our photo gallery to see what you may see while you are here in Gran Canaria.

Dive Academy Gran Canaria has something to offer all the family. Whether you are a wannabe diver or qualified diver. Whether you want your kids to learn to scuba dive or just do some fun dives yourself we have something to offer all the family.
