How the Diving Pirates Tenerife Service works
Want to meet your instructor without scrolling down?
Your benefit – you know who you dive with in Tenerife
Searching for a dive center around your holiday destination can be overwhelming. A great number of shops with an even greater number of reviews. Which one to choose? And if you find one – do you know with which kind of instructor or guide you will dive with?
Booking with us means you already know your instructor. Depending the place you stay and the requirements you have, we choose one of our partners that best fits your needs.
How do we choose our dive center partners?
As instructors with more than 15 years of experience in the dive business we look very closely at multiple aspects when choosing a dive shop. Some important questions for us are:
What's the quality of the rental equipment?
Which service attitude does the shop have?
Does the dive operation value safety standards?
- first aid/ oxygen equipment on the trips
- emergency plans
- group sizes, especially in courses
What's the quality of the air in the tanks?
Does the dive center show respect for the marine life?
What kind of boats are used?
After confirming these necessary assets there is the other important aspect: you! What are your preferences? Which diving level do you have? Which languages do you feel comfortable with? And of course: where exactly do you spend your holiday? Tell us about it.
Which prices do we have?
Prices for scuba diving in Tenerife vary greatly with the location of the dive shop. As we work together with our partners, you will only pay their price – and nothing more for us.
While you can calculate around 40-50 € per dive in the hot spots Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, it is a bit cheaper around Las Galletas or Abades, where you will pay around 30-40 € for a single dive. Usually there is a reduction if you do more dives. If you want to start diving, you can calculate around 400€ for the Open Water Course.
Do you have to pay your diving in advance?
No. According to your inquiry we will give you a recommendation for the dive center, the price and do the booking for you. The payment will be done afterwards directly with the dive shop. Should a deposit be necessary, we forward the payment details of the partner.

Meet your instructor
Ehab started his diving career more than fourteen years ago, collected more than 9.000 dives and certified more than 150 happy students with PADI / SSI / CMAS / IAC.
He is speciality instructor for
- Self Reliant Diver
- Digital Underwater Photography
You’ll find him underwater most of the time, especially when there is a chance to spot a shark. If he has to make a surface interval he loves to make people laugh or channels his inner barista with a round of Mocca.
Originally from Cairo, he studied Tourism & Hotel Management and collected experience in the service sector. Besides guiding and teaching he experienced the craziness of managing a diving center in Egypt but managed to stay sane and keep the center running smoothly.
Fluently in English and Arabic, he is also conversational in French and now forced to brush up his German, having a German wife who keeps nagging about it.
Kathy made an unexpected career change three years ago to became a dive instructor and live on the sunny side of the world. With 400+ dives and 25 certifications she is a ‘little’ behind Ehab but certainly no stranger to teaching. Coming from a profession of consulting, training and facilitation, she knows how to make people overcome their fear and develop their skills in a save and efficient way. She teaches for PADI / CMAS / IAC and is speciality instructor for
- Digital Underwater Photography
Today she focuses on connecting her two passions for diving and consulting, working as a remote business consultant and offering team workshops or retreats on the beautiful island of Tenerife. If she is not working for clients she is blogging for female divers on www.diverettes.de.
