Officially the Number #1 PADI IDC Instructor Development Centre

The world leaders in training PADI Divemasters and PADI Instructors and beyond……..

We have been based in Tenerife, Canary Islands, for more than 13 years and in that time have built up the most successful PADI Dive Center in the region. This is based on actual PADI statistics, not wishful thinking.

According to PADI statistics for the last 6 years we have trained more PADI Instructors, PADI Divemasters and issued more recreational scuba certifications than any other Dive Centre in the region.

After reaching the successful milestone of becoming a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre we then progressed to PADI Instructor Development Centre (IDC) and then being awarded the highest accolade from PADI of the PADI Career Development Centre.

“Every morning you have two choices:

Continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase your dreams. The choice is yours.”

Next PADI Divemaster course starts in

Next PADI Instructor course starts in

You have choices.... let us tell you more.....

When it comes to choosing where to do your PADI Divemaster internship, or PADI Instructor development course (IDC), we understand that there are many options available in Europe, and around the world, and we believe we have the best.

We are a training Academy, to our knowledge the only one in Europe, that means we are dedicated to training you and getting you into work.

Don’t confuse our Training Academy with a Dive Centre that also does PADI Pro courses!

We train more PADI Professionals than any other PADI Dive Centre in the region, so you will be in good company.

We have assembled a team who are all experts, not only in PADI Divemaster and PADI Instructor courses, but the complete range of PADI recreational dive courses.

The history of our PADI training Academy for PADI Pros....

In 2008 we started our first PADI Dive Centre in Tenerife.
The PADI Divemaster and PADI Instructor courses grew in popularity until we decided to move to a dedicated Training Academy for PADI Pros in 2016.

Our new location was a much larger Dive Centre, located right next to the best dive site in Tenerife.

This is where you will receive your training and mentoring to become the best Professional PADI Divemasters and PADI Instructors you can be. Ultimately we hope this is the springboard you need to start your journey on worldwide travel or for implementing the additional knowledge gained into your existing career.

In 2020 we proudly became the first PADI Career Development Centre in Tenerife and the only active PADI CDC Centre in the Canary Islands. This is the highest level of PADI Dive Centre in the world.

Discover what is unique for our PADI Divemasters / PADI Instructors....

We have radically changed how Dive Centres traditionally run a diving internship and have produced an awesome program balancing diving study, lots of diving and social entertainment, all set in the great surroundings of Tenerife and the warm Atlantic Ocean.

Unlike traditional scuba diving “internships” we do not make use of interns as a form of slave labour, but teach you to be a great diving professional with excellent customer service skills and also give you time to make friends and enjoy yourself.

After many years in the diving industry we have changed what is considered “normal” and taken feedback from 1,000s of interns across the world to produce our dedicated training Academy.

And for good measure we have dedicated PADI Master Scuba Diver programs for those interested in marine conservation and specialised Pro MSD.
Nobody offers you more.

Marine conservation programs.....

We proudly support environmental projects globally as well as locally within Tenerife and we will assist you in learning all about the world underwater and the issues it is facing.

Anyone who has an interest in diving, marine biology, aquatic conservation or starting a new scuba diving career will feel at home on our either our Divemaster internships or PADI Instructor programs.

We have our own PADI Master Scuba Diver program dedicated to Ocean Awareness which can be presented in conjunction with your PADI Divemaster or PADI Instructor program or independently.

Meet the most diverse group of trainee PADI Pros in the region....

We have had students from all around Europe and the rest of the world, check our “World of interns map” and you will discover over 50 nationalities that have succeeded with one of our PADI Divemaster internships or PADI Instructor courses. During your internship you will have time to explore the island, discover inner strengths you never knew you had and meet new people who will become lifelong friends.

Wanting to experience the adventure of a lifetime....

So if you are looking for an adventure or experience for your summer break, taking a Gap Year, looking for a complete change of career or even wanting to gain huge amounts of diving knowledge and improving your diving skills, then is this is the place for you.

PADI Divemaster, PADI Instructor, PADI MSDT and beyond....

Our Scuba Career Development Dive Centre offers PADI Divemaster internships, PADI Assistant Instructor internships, PADI Instructor internships, PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer internships and PADI Staff Instructor internships.

Looking for a certification, or a career, you have found the right Dive Centre....

There are many reasons to choose a dive centre to complete your PADI Pro training with; a nice Instructor, great underwater pictures, the website is in many languages, it’s a short distance from the local bar, or perhaps the most important for those looking to make a career in diving is, can you get me a job!?

Lets look past all of the promises by various DC’s and look at cold hard facts.

PADI do not “hand out” CDC awards to many DC’s, why? Because not many are in a position to continue the assistance beyond the training. That is where we excel. We WILL get you that job.

Having trained 1,000’s of PADI Pros, we have a huge network around the world of people who know our “standards” and want to employ YOU.

Don’t leave the biggest decision of where to do a PADI DM or PADI IDC to chance, join the best, become a PADI Pro with us.

Dive safe, Travel safe, stay safe....

In 2020 when the worldwide pandemic hit, 10,000s were left stranded and struggling to get home.

With 100’s of flights from all the budget airlines and British Airways, be safe in the knowledge you are only a few hours from mainland Europe and able to get home, should the need arise.
