When do we dive ?

Boat diving in TenerifeFrom Monday until Saturday we meet us at 9:00am in the Dive Centre ATLANTIK for scuba diving excursions. A reservation one day in advance is obligatory! Reservations by phone are accepted but you will need to make a reservation payment by PayPal or credit card.

You may do 1 to 3 dives on a day. All new reservations for 9:00am only. For known divers we also offer the option to meet us later directly at the harbour to join us on the second dive at 12:00. Night dives and special excursions are scheduled upon request. On Sundays the dive centre ATLANTIK stays closed.

Where do we dive ?

Except for special excursions we usually determine where to go on the same day, as this depends on sea conditons and the weather situation as well as the level of diving licences of our clients. The decission is always taken by the rule "Safety First"!

Are there dive sites for beginner available ?

Yes! We have several dive sites where we conduct courses, which have easy entries, no current and no waves. These dive sites are perfectly suited for beginner and unexperienced diver. Diver with limited experience or diver who haven't been diving for a while will always be accompanied seperately by one of our instructos or dive masters. For diver who haven't been diving a longer period we offer refresher dives or complete refresher courses like the PADI ReActivate

Are there advanced dive sites for ambitious divers available?

Cavern diving in TenerifeYes! We dive in volcanic caverns, on dropoffs in wrecks from shore and from boat. Our dive sites offer incredible volcanic land scapes and a vast variety of marine life. For advanced divers the first dive of the day usually goes into a depth of 20 to 40 meter. Some dive sites are even deeper than that. 

How are the dive sites ?

The dive sites in the north of Tenerife can be called "thrilling". Depths are between 10m and 40m. For TEC-Divers we also have some dropoffs and reefs down to 60m. The dive sites provide us with a variety of volcanic landscapes with lava tunnels, dropoffs, canyons and caves. Some dive sites are really labyrinthic thats why we always acompany you down there.

What Flora & Fauna can be seen ?

You find the typical cold water fishes like Baracudas, Groupers, Tunafish, Jacks, Stingrays, Angelsharks and Moryeels  as well as mediteranian warm water fishes like Parrotfish, Damselfishes, Turkish Wrasses and trumpet fishes here. The reefs are formed by lava, not by corrals. Therfore they are not as colourful as in tropical waters, but spectacular in their formations. You also find corrals like gorgonias, and yellow seafans and in deeper depths you find black corrals and huge orange white hard corrals the Dendrophilia.

Which dive sites are exceptional recommendable?

Fishesof TenerifeThe dive sites "Labyrinth" and "Semiramis" should be visited by every diver visiting the north of Tenerife.  As highlight we can recommend the "Mountain of fishes" which you should not miss when it is scheduled to go there. If you are interested in some wreck diving you should join us diving in "Tabaiba". Cavern diver will have great fun at the dive sites "Tunnel",  "Bollullo" and "Portillo".

What happens on bad weather conditions ?

There is no bad weather on an island like Tenerife. If the sea does not allow diving here on the north shore of Puerto de la Cruz, we just use our vans and pass over to the other side of the island. Here we have several dive sites off the beaches where we can dive from 10 to 40m on reefs, caves, and even a wreckdive can be found here.

What is the water temperature, which dive suit do I need?

In the well moved waters of the atlantic ocean in our area we usually do not have thermoclines. The water temperature is more or less the same in all depths. In April we have  17-18°C which rises upto 24-25°C in October. 

Our rental dive suits are wetsuits of 5-6mm with attached hood. During the cold months we have additional shorties available to wear underneath.

If you bring your own suit it should be at least a 5mm wetsiut, a 3mm tropic suit or a shorty is not recommendable. Semi-dry suits can be used all year long, our instructors wear these also. From January to May you may come with a dry suit, during the rest of the year this will be much to warm.
