Our PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre is located in a peaceful holiday resort in the South East of Tenerife, Canary Islands.
Boasting year round diving with awesome temperatures, even in winter, it is no wonder our little slice of heaven is so popular.
The actual “resort” is based on a Spanish fishing village style and is only around 20 years old. It is very popular with the Spanish, English and German tourists looking for a more peaceful area with unspoilt, un-crowded beaches.
With a number of bars and restaurants serving anything from Paella, Burgers, Steak and even dedicated fish, Italian and new Vegetarian Restaurants, you are sure to find something you fancy when eating out.
Our large, well equipped, PADI 5 Star Dive Centre is second to none on facilities and location. Large bright study areas, Multi-media sets, row upon row of diving equipment and a huge selection of PADI products awaits you on your arrival.
Add to this we have been awarded the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) to enable us to train the next generation of PADI Instructors and you know you are in great hands.
Our House Reef is only a few minutes walk from the Dive Centre and is a Marina Protected Area, so the aquatic life and topography is stunning.
Adjoining the beautiful Abades Bay is the large sandy beach that is hugely popular, but never crowded. Ideal for the non diver and for those days where you want to kick back and relax. If you have joined one of our PADI Divemaster internships, you will spend many days, practising skills, stamina and diving off this beach.
As we are very proud of our beach and House Reef we often carry out clean ups to tidy the beach and the ocean alike.
Abades is rumoured to have the highest number of sunny days in the whole of Tenerife, with the least rainfall so you are sure to be able to keep that tan topped up.
And when you are looking for something a little bit different, no problem the night-life capital of Tenerife, Las Americas is just 25 minutes away whilst the heart of Tenerife, Santa Cruz is 25 minutes in the other direction. All of this can be accessed by Bus which runs around the clock or of course by taxi.
For those visiting us from other areas we offer a collection service from your hotel or apartment. We cover all the big tourist areas like Los Cristianos, Las Amercias, Las Galletas, Golf Del Sur and everything in between.
The Diving Team consist of a PADI Course Director, who won last years PADI Elite Instructor Challenge, a PADI Master Instructor, and 2 PADI Staff Instructors as well as 2 PADI Instructors and some very helpful PADI Divemaster’s, so you will never be short of someone to lend a hand or give you some advise.
For the PADI Instructor courses we have our very own PADI Course Director on hand every day to help you with any aspects of the courses, offering an impeccable pass rate to anyone wanting to take the next step to becoming a PADI Pro.
