Our review on One Two Dive
Within the words One Two Dive or 1-2-Dive, there is a play on words that really reflects the concept that Mark and Alex, the two founders, wanted to give their center. They were aiming for the idea that scuba diving is a game and therefore a real pleasure. Ready ? One, Two, DIVE !
The center is located in the south of Tenerife Island, in the Canaries, on the premises of the comfortable and family-friendly Hotel Isabel. It opened in 2014 and did not take long to earn itself a reputation for quality services and catering for small groups!
One Two Dive offers mainly shore dives. With logistics out of the way the focus turns to comfort and many astonishingly diverse sites become accessible to all. As for trainings, all PADI courses are available - in small groups-, including the PADI IDC ; so if you were ever thinking of turning your passion into your profession, Christian, the Course Director, is the man you need to speak to to have infos on the next IDC/IE.
The team of four instructors are fully qualified to handle kids and adults, first-timers and pros, in both pools and in the ocean, and all that in seven different European languages ! Who could ask for more ?! Moreover, we appreciate the special attention paid to women with specially adapted gear, and also the staff's great knowledge in marine biology. Here, you can also discover Sidemount diving, where you will carry a tank UNDER EACH arm to experience new sensations and possibilities. Finally, we invite you to take advantage of Nitrox and Trimix, or even a professional workshop for the servicing of your gear. Remember, quality does not grow on trees, you have to work at it all year long ! They can also organize boat dives if you prefer.
Safety check : you must have proper certification to go beyond 30 meters and if you’re tech diving, you must have the appropriate insurance. Oxygen is available in the dive center, in the car, and on the boat.
The word here is “relaxation”. You define the pace. As for the marine life, the North Atlantic is full of beautiful surprises— hammerheads and blue sharks, rays, rare nudibranchs and maybe a sea turtle or two. And the icing on the cake ? Whales, orcas and dolphin season is all year round !
In short, One Two Dive is the epitome of diving adapted to YOUR needs!
