Ich hatte eine absolut fantastische Erfahrung mit Dpm Diving Tenerife! Von Anfang bis Ende war alles perfekt organisiert. Die Ausrüstung war topmodern und in ausgezeichnetem Zustand. Unser Tauchlehrer war unglaublich professionell, geduldig und hat uns die besten Tauchplätze gezeigt, die die Unterwasserwelt von Teneriffa zu bieten hat. Erklärung wurde auf deutsch durchgeführt. Die Vielfalt an Meereslebewesen und die klaren Gewässer waren beeindruckend. Besonders gut gefallen hat mir die persönliche Betreuung und die kleinen Gruppengrößen, die für ein besonders sicheres und angenehmes Taucherlebnis sorgten. Ich kann Dpm Diving Tenerife jedem Taucher, ob Anfänger oder Fortgeschrittener, wärmstens empfehlen. Vielen Dank für diese unvergesslichen Erlebnisse unter Wasser!

          • El Bufadero: This dive site located in Los Cristianos stands out for the possibility to dive with sea turtles.

          • El Meridian (Wreck): The wreck El Meridian was a German warship used during the Second World War as an auxiliary ship, dedicated to maritime surveillance and mine sweeping.
            During this dive we can also enjoy sightings of stingrays, moray eels, grouper, abbots, or even dolphins and sharks!
          • Wreck El Condesito: El Condesito was a ship carrying cement from Gran Canaria, sunk in an accident in 1973 in the area of Punta Rasca, after hitting the rocks during a storm.

          Tenerife North Dive Sites

          The northern area of Tenerife has dive sites with a higher level of difficulty, so they tend to be suitable for experienced divers.

          These are some of the most outstanding dive sites in the Northern zone of Tenerife.

          • Garachico Tunnel: The Garachico Tunnel was formed by the ancient volcanic activity of the island. The tunnel starts at a depth of 12 metres and descends to a depth of 20 metres.
            From there the dive continues to 20 metres deep, where you can enjoy an abundance of marine life, such as shrimps, Canarian lobsters, nidubranchs and much more!
          • Wreck of Tabaiba: one of the most emblematic wreck dives in Tenerife. It is located on the northeast coast of the island, in front of Tabaiba. The ship was sunk in 2006 with the intention of creating an artificial reef.
            The maximum depth is 32 meters, and it is a very large ship so it is possible to penetrate it, as long as you are certified! As for the marine life, you will be able to spot octopus, moray eels, cuttlefish and groupers among many other species.
          • La Catedral: The location of this dive site is close to Puerto de la Cruz, so the boat trip takes place from there. This dive has incredible rock formations, starting at 6 metres and reaching a depth of 40 metres.
            The light enters through holes in the rocks, creating a spectacular atmosphere and scenes. Amongst the species that you can enjoy on this dive are red gorgonians, groupers, sardines, moray eels and bream. This dive is recommended for advanced divers.

          There are other very interesting dive sites in the northern area, most of them for experienced divers.
