I did my Open Water Dive course with Chris and absolutely loved every minute of it. It was my first experience in diving and the guys made sure I felt comfortable throughout the whole course. They are extremely professional, with strong sense of responsibility and safety is of their highest priority. 2 of 3 days it was just me and the instructor and special attention was given to all details and all my questions were properly answered. The whole experience was a lot of fun and Chris took me to some amazing diving spots where I managed to see an angel shark, ray, octopus, and many other marine species even on my first dive in open waters. I fell in love with diving since then. I highly recommend this dive shop and I will be back to do the Advanced Open Water course with them.

Completed our 3 day Padi Open Water Diver course with Blue Water Diving yesterday. Everyone there was so friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Carolyn who was our instructor throughout the course. She is a natural instructor explaining things with ease, making the course fun and enjoyable. In the end helping us learn quickly, managing to get a wreck and drift dive in on the last day because of it.

Would 100% recommend this diving establishment to anyone interested in scuba diving.

Thanks once again to Carolyn and the Blue Water Diving Team.

Did the open water course and following advanced open water course with blue water diving. From the very first pool session to the last adventure dive I have had a great positive experience. The instructors are all fun and at the same time reassuring and serious about the training. (Special thanks Nathan and Danny; you rock!)
I have seen many different sites with beautiful marine life and scenery like wrecks. My favorite dives of the week must have been the deep dive which was super relaxed with loads of fish, rays, eels.. and the peak performance buoyancy dive aka playing games under water with Kate which was good fun.

In the beginning before a couple of dives I was either seasick or a bit out of breath on the surface and Kate responded very nicely and was in no rush. This helped a lot. Tip: if you are seasick just go down asap and catch a breath at about 3M where everything is calm. You’ll feel better fast.

Equipment was always sorted and clean.

Just book a dive (course) with them especially during these times when it’s one of the things you can still do “normally”. (And safe!)

100% recommend Blue Water Diving for anything diving related!

They are so professional with everything! I got my open water certification and had Chris as instructor. He took care of me, guided me and taught me everything. I felt safe and secure all the time.

It was an amazing experience and I am so happy I got this experience with Blue Water Diving and their team! Their dive masters are also all very professional which is no wonder with Chris and Kate teaching them!

Again 100% recommend!

Can’t say enough good things about Kate, Chris and Co. Everyone at Blue Water Diving is super friendly, knowledgable and professional. My husband and I started out a bit nervous but they put us at ease straight away and made everything simple and easy to pick up on. We began with the open water certification and loved it so much that we moved on to the advanced course right after. If you do anything while you’re in Gran Canaria, take a few days to complete one of the courses they offer, you won’t regret it!!

Booked a beginners dive for myself & three others. Kate & Chris were absolutely brilliant from booking process right up until after the dive. We emailed a couple of days before to add on a person to the dive and this was no hassle at all. Both were extremely patient and great with explaining what to do when diving. Safety was clearly a key priority. It was an amazing experience to see some great marine life. I will definitely be back next year to do my open water cert.

Chris, jaffa and Ivan were the best instructors for open water dive. We were a five people family and did the PADI open water divers course. Great course , enthusiastic people, very professional. They learned is everthing in the pool so there was no fear in the ocean. We all got the same love for diving. If you search for the best then you will find it at puerto Rico Gran Canaria at Blue water diving . We will come back visiting them . We all love to dive now .

Came over to Gran Canaria to see my brother (a dive master). He introduced me to the blue water diving team and we got going straight away. Lovely instructors, both Kate and Carolyn were incredible, patient, understanding and friendly.
If I ever want to do another diving course, i'd fly straight to gran canaria and sign myself up.
10/10 would recommend again
