    Just completed my dive master qualification along with Rescue and first aid with Blue Water diving, I have to say it was a real pleasure to complete with Kate and Chris and the rest of the team The quality of instruction is spot on, not missing anything yet still making it an enjoyable experience and also managing to teach in a way that suits the individual explaining everything in a way that is easily understood I would recommend anyone who wants to either start diving or progress further to look them up if travelling to the Canaries

    What an amazing experience, Chris and Kate are awesome divers who know thier stuff. I learnt how to stay neutraly buoyant and it has changed my diving experience to be much more enjoyable and comfortable. My husband did his open water while I did my advanced, which we didn't know was possible but they were very accommodating and flexible. We saw loads of fish, angel shark, sting ray, cuttle fish, octipus and 2 wrecks. I highly recommend them and can't wait to come back!!!

    I was coming to blue water diving for my AOWD. After doing the theory at home (well organized from Kate, thank you here) I arrived at the center and Chris already planned the first day and during the ride to the boat we made a plan for the next dives. We had a perfect navigation dive with a special guest in it (an angel shark) and at the Deep Dive I got explained all I need to know. We were always on the safe side, had enough air and I knew it will be a safe dive. Everyone was really interested in what I want to learn. So we planned to do a night dive. But as the weather got bad and I had to leave, we changed the plan again and did a wonderful search and recovery dive. On my AOWD dives I was always alone and that was pretty cool. Overall it was an amazing stay, I learned a lot but also had a lot of fun during the dives. Many thanks to Kate, Chris, Kevin and Adam for amazing days and dives.

    My girlfriend and I made our AOWD with this super diving school. We were very happy with everything, the equipment, the instructors, the friendliness. The operation in the diving school makes at first a little bit the impression that everything is a bit disorderly, but this is only the impression from the outside. When you are equipped everything runs smoothly and well organized. We were lucky to have Danny as our instructor, a great guy! Very experienced, patient and very well skilled. During the briefings before diving we were very well instructed, could ask all questions and always felt very well prepared. The dive spots were close, partly reachable by car and partly by boat. The dive center has its own boat, which makes the process very easy. We saw a lot of fish especially at the dive spots that were accessible by boat. We were at two wrecks, which was very interesting. All in all we would definitely go diving with Blue Water Diving again! Thank you very much for your help, your patience and everything else that you never see as a customer, but which is incredibly important for the great experience we had!

    I had an amazing and fun time doing my advanced padi with Kate and Dani, they made it so enjoyable, relaxing fun and safe! Good thing to know as well they have their own boat so that´s a pro for a Diving Center and their recommendations were super helpful at all time.

    Mi pareja y yo hemos hecho el curso AOWD en este centro y ha sido todo perfecto. Nuestro instructor Dani muy majo y profesional. Nos hemos reído mucho, hemos aprendido y mejorado y siempre con seguridad. Nos han tratado fenomenal, lo recomiendo sin duda.

    Queríamos hacer el curso de buceo avanzado y estábamos buscando lugares en la isla. Kate nos contestó muy rápidamente y nos ofreció muy buen precio y la garantía de poder volver a puerto/tierra entre inmersiones (por un problema médico tengo que ir al baño nada más bucear, me lleva pasando siempre). Aunque la mayor parte del personal es inglés y hablan poco español, Dani, que fue nuestro instructor, es cordobés de nacimiento y se encarga de la parte hispanohablante. El trato fue excelente, las inmersiones fueron algunas como planeamos (otras no, por la corriente tan fuerte que había, pero así es la vida) y el ambiente fue todo el tiempo genial. Recomiendo tanto si te quedas en el sur de la isla (te llevan y traen) como si, como nosotros, te vas en coche desde LPGC.

    This is our third visit to Blue water Diving and every time we have been there Kate and Chris have looked after us extremely well They are very proffessional with each discipline and ensure that safety is paramount in all that they do. They make the experience so good and even Chris's jokes are not too bad. Looking forward to our next visit Thank you both and all the staff there for a great time If you like to dive or want to dive then these guys are the ones to meet.

    Did my Advanced PADI with Blue Water Diving. A great experience with some very knowledgable and skilled instructors. Saw loads of wildlife and scenery whilst advancing my dive skills, even an unexpected detour when we sighted some dolphins!! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is thinking of diving in Gran Canaria!!!

    Superbe expérience avec le centre de plongée Blue Water à Puerto Calma. Toute l'équipe c'est montrée accueillante et les moniteurs toujours à l'écoute et disponible pour rendre les plongées les plus agréables possibles ! Je recommande fortement ce centre de plongée que ce soit pour les loisirs ou pour passer des certifications.
