After the terrible events of the last few months across the world we want to give you all the latest factual information we can provide on the COVID situation and Scuba diving.
This information is compiled with information from the Spanish and Tenerife Government’s, PADI, DAN and ABRE.
Also there is an implementation of the updated laws from the Spanish Government on Scuba Diving being effective 1st July 2020 and also our Local Town Hall has started to make some changes to procedures for divers locally.
This page will be updated with any relevant information and news and we ask all our divers to refer to this page for the most up to date information.
COVID – Tenerife
We spent 99 days in Lockdown with very strict restrictions on movements etc.
During this time we had a total of 110 deaths across the Island.
In our Municipality of Arico we have had no deaths.
On the 20th June the Spanish borders were opened and international air travel for nonresident’s resumes on the 1st July from most Countries.
We are open for business.
The air industry, like all businesses, was hit very hard but is preparing to get back to work with new procedures.
You will need to check with your airline and departure airport of what these are, but this is what can be expected at the moment from most airlines / airports.
We have adopted a number of new procedures to ensure our clients remain safe above all else.
On arrival you will be given a full briefing of what to expect.

Update 9th January 2021
Exemptions exist for swimming, sunbathing in a designated zone, eating, private vehicles occupied singly or by members of the same household, medical conditions (medical proof required – in Spanish because it will be Policía Local who’ll stop and fine you), working or exercising which makes wearing a mask impossible but mask must be carried to put on as soon as exempt activity stops.
Update May 2021
The entry requirements are more fluid.
Each Country has different reciprocal arrangement’s, so you will need to check what the current requirements are specifically for you to arrive.
In general a negative PCR test is required.
The airport is fully open and most bars, restaurants and shops are also now open.
For specific entry requirements for YOUR Country please check with your local channels.
Update January 2022
Life is almost back to normal.
If your vaccinations for Covid are up to date, then entry is straight forward, but you must check.
If you are you are unsure about entry requirements from a specific Country please check with your local channels and the Spanish governments health website.
We will no longer post updates relating to Covid.
