Have now gained my OWD and have had a few dives since. I can fully recommend Zeke as a great teacher, who sets you at ease and understands your needs from the start. Great dives since I achieved my OWD and Zeke has now guided me through a number of "club" dives and made me realise one of my dreams......to dive with turtles !!! Great times and you will find it hard to find a more friendly, safe and expert instructor.
I started late at 54 to find out about diving. I started with Zeke from a novice to I'm now AOW with peak performance buoyancy, navigation, deep dive specs and now I've just passed my drysuit spec which I struggled with at first but with Zekes patience I've now passed it. Even though on the first part I really wanted to give up. I don't think I've had got this far being an older bloke without Zekes help. All I can say is let's get wet and blow bubbles !!!!
I completed my AOWD course with Zeke.
He is a great instructor, I learned so much and had a lot o fun inside and outside of the water!
In Tenerife you have to dive with Granadilla Driving!
Zeke has been amazing with us! Patience of a saint! So professional, friendly. And our safety was always priority! Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! Gave me the confidence I genuinely didn’t think I had!
Thank you Zeke
Planning to dive on Tenerife ? I can unreservedly recommend Zeke Neville of Granadilla Diving.
Don’t waste your time with other dive centres on the island! Believe me I have tried them and they don’t measure up to Zeke’s friendly, personal service. His dives are very good value, particularly as all kit, a hot lunch and local pickup is all included, and Zeke is very knowledgeable on local dive sites and marine life. The whole dive experience through site orientation, kitting up, entering and exiting the water etc is smooth and relaxed, with excellent attention to safety and detail. I will definitely try to return and dive again with Zeke.
Had 2 great dives with Zeke today, at Las Eras. Zeke gives a very personalised service, at a no-nonsense price. There was loads of life on the dives, cuttlefish, nudibranchs, arrow crabs, trumpetfish. Highly recommended.
Me and my girlfriend are seasoned divers. We went diving on Tenerife for the second time with Zeke. This time for a week and we truely had a blast! Apart form the laughs on land he was a great guide who took the time for the build up and really went out of his way to give us the best diving experience possible. He showed us some beautiful places (of which Las Eros the favorite). It was with Zeke i did my first nightdive and i was amazed by the nightlife beauty. One of my best dives ever. He will see us again for sure!
Another review after another amazing trip to Tenerife .
This time I did the navigation and digital photography speciality. By completing my 5th PADI speciality I also gained the master scuba diver rating. As always Zeke guided me through the courses effortlessly, which was an achievement considering my previous navigation skills! The photography course was a lot of fun and the quality of my underwater photography has also significantly increased. I also completed a number of fun dives and each dive whist was conducted extremely professionally and safely was so much fun.
As a group of "seasoned" divers who, between us, had visited Tenerife many times previously, we probably thought we`d seen everything it had to offer. We couldn`t have been more wrong. We saw & experienced things that we never expected & had a real blast, credit in full to the `Force of Nature` that is Zeke, who worked tirelessly to ensure we had a memorable week underwater, as well as a laugh a minute topside. Top bloke, top guide, top set-up.
I completed my open water course with Zeke back in June and he was so patient and ensured that I understood and could complete all skills properly and with confidence. He was such a brilliant and calm instructor that I have just returned from completing my AOW certification and my DPV speciality as well as some fun dives. I love my time with Granadilla diving and Zeke makes every dive fun and helps me improve my skills in the water. I would definitely recommend Zeke to anyone who wants to learn to dive or have their first experience under water.
Having been coaxed into a dive whilst on holiday in Tenerife with my 14 year old son me being 53 ... i was quite infact very scared frightened nervous and all the other words that you can think of to try this sport.....
Having now done the dive I am so thankful for the patience knowledge and the support of Zeke a true professional .
He made me overcome my fear so that enjoyment was the main aim and what a wonderful experience he made the dive for us both .
I cannot say how much I would be able to recommend this man to achieve such a dream .... Thankyou...... also to Steve for the photos too I will never forget the experience and hopefully Joseph will see you next year for him to achieve his qualification in scuba diving
I have just returned from a trip to Tenerife where I complete my Rescue course and deep diving speciality with Granadilla diving. The courses were run extremely professionally whilst still being a lot of fun. I think this was due to the expertise of the instructor. Zeke, who took extra time to ensure I fully understood areas of the learning that I struggled with and helped calmed my fears of exiting an unresponsive from the water. This enabled me to both succeed at the course and as a result become a better safer more responsive diver. Zeke also tested my new rescue skills in subsequent fun dives after I had completed the course. The deep diver course was run smoothly and as a result I had absolutely no fears of going to deeper depths with Zeke.
In addition to this both my children dived with Zeke, my son, Sean who is severely autistic but has been declared fit to dive by a diving doctor completed 2 DSD dives with Zeke. Sean doesn’t currently have the mental capacity to achieve a diving qualification so DSD’s are the only way he can experience the underwater world. Zeke takes his time with Sean ensuring he understands all the implications of diving, is able to complete the skills and then controls Sean’s buoyancy for the whole dive. As a qualified diver I was able to join them for these dives and it was amazing to see the wonder in Sean’s face ats he saw all the fish and was even waving at them as we went by. I would like to praise Zeke’s ability to include my son in our dives as many would just write his off as too complex.
My daughter who is a AOW diver and also autistic choose to only do fun dives this trip. Zeke also helped her in these dives giving her hints and tips on how to improve her buoyancy and trim.
In short I can recommend Granadilla diving for divers of all abilities
as Zeke truly is amazing Instructor.
A couple of months ago we asked Zeke to take a young man , who was struggling with family life and teach him to dive. Zeke has done a superb job with him and the difference is amazing. I would have total confidence in Zeke as a dive instructor ( he is now going to work with one of my grandchildren) ,he is fun but disciplined and safety is an absolute priority.In an part of the world where not everyone is qualified or even interested in doing a good job safely,this man can be relied on to do a first rate job.Thank you Zeke...until your next student of mine!❤️
Just returned from a 1st time day of dives with my son (14yrs) . Have to say Zeke is a fantastic instructor ... completely puts you at ease before, during and after the dives. Professional attitude with the right blend of humour to ensure you have a truly unforgettable experience. Thinking a scuba diving ... contact this company for a great time.
Zeke and Shaun took myself and my 2 boys on a DSD yesterday and we all had an amazing experience. One of my boys was struggling to neutralise his ears so Zeke took him off on his own and patiently helped him through the process until he was able to join us with the amazing marine life below. Thankyou so much for a great day. We will definitely come back for our open water.
It’s been an honour diving with you Zeke. It’s good to know there are people I can put my trust in and who know what they’re doing 🙂 I’ll definitely be back Diving with you again. I can feel the improvement in my skills in the 10 dives we did this week. Whilst it’s good to have fun dives, it’s just as important to develop my confidence and skills. Thank you so much for your patience and wisdom!
Had the best diving experience and such a good instructor, would defo do this again.
Just completed my PADI open water course with Zeke. If you are thinking of doing a course I can highly recommend Granadilla Diving, very professional and attentive, made the whole course a very good experience.
These were our first dives as qualified divers & they were just brilliant.
Zeke was the perfect diving instructor! explaining every step of the way and ensuring we were safe and fully aware of breathing, equalizing pressure etc! The perfect first dive at the perfect location xx
