Try Dive in Tenerife south – The best place to dive for beginners

Diving is like flying without wings, floating in the vastness of the ocean and discovering treasures that most people don’t even know exist.

With its tremendous variety of marine life and crystal clear waters, Tenerife offers a unique diving experience for beginners, ideal if it is your first dive. We take you to the best place to do your first dive in Tenerife where you will find yourself surrounded by marine life and a spectacular seabed. We will also take photos and videos so you will always have the memory with you.

Do I book a Try Dive or Discover Scuba Diving? What’s the difference?

We offer two options to explore the crystal clear waters of Tenerife: the Try Dive and the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD).

The Try Dive is an exciting and brief underwater experience of 20 or 40 minutes, where you can explore the impressive marine life of the Bay of Stingrays. On the other hand, the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is a more complete option that includes a brief theoretical and practical training before the dive with a certified diving instructor.

We also offer additional options to customize your experience, such as adding a second baptism or DSD on the same day, transport escort, photos to capture your best moments underwater and transportation from Playa la Arena or Tenerife South to make your arrival comfortable and hassle-free.

Select the option that best suits your needs and book online your underwater adventure!

How do we do our diving for beginners in Tenerife South?

First, when someone books online, we receive their request and contact them by email to confirm the date and time of the dive.

When the person arrives at the center, our staff will greet them and begin with a 30-minute informational session in their preferred language. During this session, an informative video or brief oral instruction on diving equipment, breathing techniques and safety will be presented.

After the briefing, the staff will help the individual prepare for the dive by providing wetsuits, buoyancy vests and other necessary equipment. Once you are fully prepared, the individual instructor will accompany and supervise you at all times during the dive.

Before the dive, the instructor will check if the person is comfortable with the equipment and provide additional instructions.

Then, you will dive into the Bay of Rays, one of the most beautiful dive sites on the island, where you can observe various species of rays, turtles, crabs, moray eels, octopus, cuttlefish, shrimp and more.

The duration of the dive depends on the selected program, which can vary between 20 and 40 minutes underwater. After the dive, the person will return to the dive center to change, leave their equipment and collect their personal belongings.

Upon request, our staff can take photographs or videos of the diving experience for an additional fee of 15 euros.

Finally, if the person has booked our transportation, our team will take him/her back to his/her hotel in the south of Tenerife.

What marine species can you see during the baptism?

If we tell you that we take you to the best place for your diving baptism in Tenerife South, we say it for a reason 😉

These are some of the species you may see during the baptism. Remember that these are wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed, although the odds are in our favor:

  • Rays: Stingrays are a type of cartilaginous fish with a flattened, disc-shaped body and pectoral fins that extend from the head to the tail. In Ray Bay, several types of rays can be found, including Chuchos, Bishop rays and Butterfly rays.
  • Turtles: sea turtles are aquatic reptiles that live in oceans and seas around the world. In Bahía de las Rayas, it is possible to observe sea turtles, which can be of different species depending on the area.
  • Crabs: crabs are crustaceans with hard shells and jointed legs. There are many types of crabs that can be found on the seabed, and some can be quite colorful and eye-catching.
  • Moray eels: Moray eels are a type of anguilliform fish that live in warm, tropical waters. They have a long, slender body and a large head with strong jaws.
  • Octopuses: Octopuses are mollusks with eight tentacles that they use to catch prey and defend themselves from predators. They are intelligent and highly skilled animals, and can change color and texture to camouflage themselves with their environment.
  • Sepias: Cuttlefish are another type of mollusk that resemble octopuses, but have a shorter and rounder body. They also have eight tentacles, but two of them are longer and are used to catch prey.
  • Shrimp: shrimp are crustaceans found in different sizes and colors. They can be found on the seabed and are an important food source for many fish and other marine animals.
