Until this week I was a lapsed Open Water diver. It has been over ten years since I’d last been diving (work, life, kids curtailing chances). For my 40th I decided I’d love to get back into it, but after being “dry” for so long I wanted to make sure I found a dive school that could renew my skills and make sure I was safe to dive.
I contacted several schools in the south of Tenerife, but after my first conversation with Zeke I knew I’d found the right place.
Zeke has a down to earth professionalism that gives you instant confidence.
After a morning of reviewing open water skills and getting kitted out we headed out to Playa de Las Vistas in Los Cristianos. Conditions were challenging with higher than normal swells affecting the south of Tenerife at the time reducing visibility and moving us around in the water. Many other dice schools were barred from diving that day due to the conditions and enhanced police checks on all divers entering the water.
No problems for Grenadilla Diving though and we had two fantastic dives, being back in the water was just fantastic.
On the second day we’re joined by several other divers and we headed up the coast in search of calmer water. The conditions were much rougher, and after one false start where we were advised by the local lifeguard not to dive we moved to a new location. We had another fantastic dive at Rayazul with Zeke’s Divemaster, Jodie. Whilst we were enjoying lunch the waves really go up, closing the beach and breakwater. We got back in but due to the visibility and current we found it difficult to stay together so abandoned our dive early. Safety first!
As we had not had a full dive, Zeke made sure we all had an open invite to come down for another free dive at our convenience. So I joined Zeke later that week, in much calmer conditions, for another dive.
We are in Tenerife once or twice a year, I’ll definitely be booking a day in with Zeke for every trip from now on.
My 14yr old son wanted to try scuba diving and I had a search on here and was lucky enough to find Zeke Scubatenerife @ Granadilla Diving
For one of the few times in my life I have been speechless! What an absolutely amazing bloke. My son is Autistic so I am maybe a little precious but I had nothing but total confidence from the minute he started.
Zeke is a great bloke, very personable and amazing with the young chap. Nothing was too much hassle or trouble for him. The entire six hour experience with two dives worked out to be not too dissimilar in price to a day at Siam Park or the Karting Track.
If you do one thing next trip, find Zeke and book a Discover Diving course. 🙏🏼❤️
We had the most amazing trip with Zeke and Wata today (July 23)! My son (10yo) had high hopes on what he would see and he was not disappointed! We saw more sting rays than we can remember; cuttle fish; trumpet fish and much more! We did 2 dives on the discover course which was really sensible as we got our confidence in the first dive, then had a lovely lunch before doing a more adventurous trip! Zeke shared so much information from the point of booking that we knew exactly what was happening. We had a fantastic trip - couldn’t recommend it more!
We had a great time with Zeke and Jodie yesterday. Neither of us had been before so had no idea what to expect but we loved it. The team were knowledgeable and supportive and the dive was beautiful. Thank you again #girlsday ✌️
If anyone is thinking about learning to dive, have some fun or even experienced divers looking to enjoy a another dive! I strongly recommend Zeke at Granadilla Diving and his team. I was over last year for a few days and just had to come back! This time i done my Rescue Course, EFR, Deep Course and the courses couldn't have been any better. I had some the best experiences of my life in Tenerife and they simply wouldn’t be the same if had of gone diving with anyone else on the island and that was proven when i went with another dive centre. Want to say a big thank to yourself, Clare and Wata for an unforgettable week of diving and good banter! I can't to my next trip over 🙌 Strongly Recommend! You won't want to dive with anyone else apart from Zeke and trust me, you'll be back again 👌

I recently completed my Rescue Diver course, as well as several specialty courses, and had an amazing time with Zeke and Wata! I can confidently say that Zeke and Wata are the best instructors I have ever had the pleasure of diving with. They were patient, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to provide thorough training and guidance. I felt confident and well-prepared for each dive, thanks to their expertise and attention to detail.
In addition to the courses, I also had the opportunity to go on several fun dives with Granadilla Diving. The dive sites were breathtaking, and the underwater life was diverse and abundant. I was able to witness some truly awe-inspiring marine life.
Overall, my experience with Zeke and Wata was exceptional. The professionalism, expertise, and friendliness of them, combined with the relaxed atmosphere of the club, made for an unforgettable dive experience. I highly recommend Granadilla Diving to anyone looking to learn or improve their diving skills, or simply to have an amazing time exploring the underwater world. Thank you Zeke and Wata for an incredible experience!
Finished my scuba dive certification with Zeke in the Canary Islands. Zeke is an excellent instructor and was able to calm my fears with patience and expertise while making sure I learned the required skills. The equipment is top notch and the personalized service of picking me up and dropping me off was greatly appreciated. Thanks Zeke! You made it a great experience for me.
It was such a good time. Everything was great, Zeke & Wata are very nice, the equipment is new and well maintained. quick answers to all my questions. I felt very comfortable and had a lot of fun. I will come back
Super club de plongée! Très arrangeant, disponible! On a été super bien accueilli ! L'ambiance était au top, après 3 ans sans plongée ça a été un magnifique retour sous l'eau, l'équipe prend le temps de bien expliquer !
