Our pool is the perfect place for all divers to learn scuba diving or practice their skills in safe, quiet and comfortable conditions. Whether a qualified diver or beginner, in our pool you get all the time you need to learn the confidence building skills at each training level. For our very young divers (kids from 8 to 10) we run the fun PADI Bubblemaker course in our pool. So, from Bubblemaker course to dive professional, the swimming pool is the perfect place to begin your scuba diving adventures.

At Dive Academy Gran Canaria we are equipped with a comfortable new air-conditioned 9-seater minibus. We can transport certified divers all around the Island to find you the best shore entry dives available. We also use our minibus for our "no hassle, free of charge" hotel 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 days’ scuba diving. This service is free of charge to all the main resorts in the south of Gran Canaria.

Dive Academy also operate our own dive boat, ‘Amigos Dos’, a 7.5 meter long RIB. Our boat allows access 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 10 divers with full equipment. The boat is fully equipped with emergency equipment, including first aid and oxygen systems, and VHF radio.

We run daily dive trips by boat and shore for the already qualified scuba diver. 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, the famous El Cabron Marine Reserve in Arinaga and the boat dives in the south, including our house reefs- Arguineguin and Elaina.
