Great Dive Centre

My partner and I qualified last year on holiday and we were keen to find a decent dive centre here in Gran Canaria. I booked two dives locally with Blue Water and my partner who is in mid pregnancy wanted to snorkel. Jackpot! Picked a great team here and it was great to practice my diving skills; one off the wreck in Mogan and a nice drift dive. Great weather, great sites, everything was spot on and we were picked up from our hotel.

Best experience ever

Came over to Gran Canaria to see my brother (a dive master). He introduced me to the blue water diving team and we got going straight away. Lovely instructors, both Kate and Carolyn were incredible, patient, understanding and friendly.
If I ever want to do another diving course, i'd fly straight to gran canaria and sign myself up.
10/10 would recommend again.

Fabulous owners and staff

Not sure how to start this! Absolutely fantastic people! I highly recommended it for everyone...We both loved it! We can’t wait until next vacation for a new course or a dive. We got great help from Rachel (instructor) with our children while diving, as she took them snorkelling so we the parents could concentrate on the diving lessons. Thank you very much Carolyn (instructor) for teaching us, we had so much fun and you are such a great teacher, we can’t wait to dive with you again in the future.

Diving again after 3 years!

Chris, Kate and Carolyn are a great team; friendly, professional and nothing is too much trouble. When I was there a group of 4 interns was in training for Dive Master, so all levels of expertise catered for!

Thoroughly recommended!

Masters in diving!

I had an absolute blast with Blue water diving. From the booking with Kate, to the actual ‘one-on-one training’ (no big groups here!) their entire approach is amazing, very friendly, informative and is very well done, and most important, safety first and lots of personal attention. Thank you Christopher & Kate for this out of this world experience. I never knew this would be such an emotional and touching experience. I’ll be back!

Best dive experience

We did a 10 dive package + Advanced Open Water + Enriched air. The team at Blue Water Diving were second to none. Ensured we had a wide variety of dive sites + bent over backwards to meet all our needs. Gerry and Chris took the time to help develop my dive skills all the way through. Very professional and a lot of fun! I would highly recommend Blue Water Diving to anyone looking to dive in Gran Canaria.

Amazing experience

Did my advanced open water with Blue Water Diving and it was absolutely brilliant. The standard of training was extremely high and went well above and beyond what PADI requires. The atmosphere is really fun but completely professional. Absolutely trust you're in good hands. Currently looking to return to do more training. Cant recommend enough.

Recommended Open Water Diving Course

Amazing crew and dive centre. Spent time researching all the dive and these guys stood out. Not a natural in the water, but Kate, Chris and crew made me feel at complete ease and helped me get my qualification. Disappointed I don't have time for more dives but definitely recommend these guys and will be back for more in future.
