Another great PADI Digital Underwater Photography Course with Oli our in house camera man.
Alicia and Marius were a little freaked out holding his camera #YouBreakItYouBuyIt hahaha
Good fun and some excellent tips and tricks for better photo’s with a few really nice shots from both… and Oli took a few good ones too.
Congratulations to Ross who just got his MSDT!
He completed his professional training with us before staying on for experience and then moving to Malta for his first job!
An amazing success story and one of our favourite people.
It’s like Charlie’s Angels but underwater!
Richard starting his PADI Open Water Course today with help from Instructor Jess and our Divemasters in training Alicia and Frankie!

Interns out cleaning up our local bay on their #ProjectAware Dive Against Debris Speciality…
…They are constantly keeping the bay clean anyway so why not get a #Specialty to acknowledge it!
Some more summer farewells!
Congrats to Sam, Finn, Marius and Tiarnan for becoming PADI Divemasters and starting their professional diving journey!
Sam and Finn return to their dive club in Ireland full of PADI knowledge, Tiarnan also leaves for Ireland and Marius to the UK. We are hoping to see all four back for an Instructor Course soon.
Some shots from our recent specialty dives including PADI Digital Underwater Photography with Alicia and Marius.
This means they are now also Master Scuba Divers along with Tiarnan, Finn and Sam!
Some lovely sunlight, Octopus, Hermit crabs, Pearly Razorfish, Bandtail Puffers, Streaked Gurnards, Flounders, Turtles, Statues and more!
Awesome dive with the Interns at El Poris.
Gorgeous light, Octopus, Turtle, swimthrough …
We had it all whilst conducting PADI Naturalist, Fish ID, Deep and Photography Specialties with Marius, Frankie, Tiarnan, Alicia and Sam.
Goodbye or Farewell…
Let’s say ‘see you later’ to Toni! Off back to #France for a few months before joining us again to become a PADI Open Water #Scuba #Instructor.
I think it’s safe to say we have him #hooked (pun intended).
Alicia and Tiarnan on the way up. Rescue done…. Divemaster begun! Let’s go!!!
Looking proud with their new PADI Divemaster packs. A bag full of knowledge and possibilities!

After a PADI Basic Freediver course they guys strapped on some mono fins and mermaid tails for some underwater fun on the Distinctive PADI Mermaid Diver Specialty.
A popular course here for Freediving enthusiasts and Scuba Divers alike. Written by our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!
Where else can you become a mermaid or merman?!
He received his PADI Divemaster pack and is on the final leg of his Internship….
….but only the start of his new diving life!
9 amazing young Germans joined us to try #Scuba #Diving yesterday!
They have given up a week of their summer holiday to fly over from #Germany and volunteer at our local #dog #shelter Aktion Tier Acción Del Sol
They had a morning cooling off with us under the water before we all went back to walk some dogs in the afternoon.
Is that Benicio Del Toro?…
…Even better it’s our PADI Regional Manager, Gorka!
We would like to thank Gorka for taking time out to come and chat with our Divemaster Trainees about becoming PADI Pro’s.
At the end there was a short Q&A session, and then it was time for Pete and Kim to discuss mutually beneficial opportunities in the Canary Islands with the #PADI #RM.
Congratulations to Finn and April for becoming PADI Search and Recovery Specialty Divers today!
Lots of search patterns and lifting objects in some wavy conditions. Good going!

A big group leave us today as PADI Divemasters!
Congratulations to Gledis, Janos, Mat, Stjepan, Emir, Seven and Eamonn! #Albania #Hungary #Poland #Croatia #Turkey #Ireland
They came from all over the world, from different backgrounds of different ages, with different ambitions. They worked hard and became our newest PADI Pros.
Eamonn joined an elite group this week and became a PADI Master Scuba Diver the highest elite recreational level you can reach!
Here he is on his Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty with PADI MSDT, Jess. You need a total of five specialty’s to attain this coveted level.
He also became a PADI Divemaster on an awesome last week!
Marius and Tiarnan (right) have been enjoying adventure dives this week after becoming PADI Open Water Divers with PADI MSDT, Jess!!! Stjepan and Seven (left) have been helping the boys along.
Enjoy the journey boys it only gets better from here.
#Boat #FishID #Navigation #Deep #SearchAndRecovery #PeakPerformanceBuoyancy ….
Canarian Lobsters!! Amazing creatures… always love seeing these beauties.
And what a great dive for Kim and Monika – The Wonder Team!
…swimthroughs, gorgeous light, Morays and statues.
The time has finally arrived for Richard to fly the nest!
After successfully passing his PADI Instructor Examination he has spent the last two months working hard and gaining experience with us here!
He’s now off into the wide world of PADI diving. Good luck Rich. Keep in touch.
Gledis on one of his first days during his PADI Open Water Diver Course.
Just a few weeks of intense training later and he has become a very capable diver heading towards PADI Divemaster Pro Status.
Want to follow him and go from #ZeroToHero? Get in touch and change your life forever!
Another look at the events on Women’s Dive Day this year!
Presentations, Dives, Beach Clean Ups and a BBQ!
Lots of fun, awareness and celebrations!
An amazing day celebrating women in diving!
We had a presentation by Jess about why it’s so important, and talked about some influential women (Gemma Smith, Szilvia Gogh, Dottie Frazier, Sylvia Earle and our very own Kim Timmers)…
… then a cracking dive for the women at a local dive site, Las Eras, followed by a Beach Clean Up, and an evening BBQ! #Fantastic
On Women’s Dive Day it’s important to give a nod to those women who make a difference and inspire in the industry.
We would like to give a shout out to our very own Platinum Course Director Kim!
To put that into perspective there are only 11 female PADI Platinum Course Directors in the world! She is also an Elite 300 Instructor and PADI Freediver Instructor and that’s just a little of what she has accomplished.
She not only has helped change the lives of many people through teaching (all of team here included) but her strength and continued motivation help to inspire us all. As a woman she’s a beacon for what you can achieve if you put your mind to it.
Thank you Kim for everything you do. We are lucky to have you.

This time to Sarah, who although only with us for a short time, really got stuck in, going above and beyond with her training and extra courses.
Her hard work and attitude were acknowledged with the dive centre Best of the Best Award!
A sad goodbye to Grant from #Wales last week. He smashed out his #PADI #Divemaster course over the last three weeks and is now enjoying a well deserved holiday with his family on the Island.
Well done Grant, thanks for everything, keep in touch!
