Moon Pool.

Diving Tenerife Moon Pools

Depth 8-18 meters. All levels of diver. Beach entry.

This impressive dive starts with a giant stride entry into the top of a cave. Followed by a 6 meter swim, through the cave out into the open Atlantic Ocean. Then we follow the wall back round to the beach exit. This dive offers lots of life with the added bonus of overhangs, caves and rock formations similar to the Giant Causeway.

 

Black Cove

Diving Tenerife Black Cove

Depth 2-18 Meters. All levels of diver. Beach entry/exit.

This dive starts with a short surface swim. You then descend to around 4 meters and swim along a reef. As the reef deepens the rock formations look like the 'Giant Causeway'. There is much life here. Octopus, damsels, eel garden, sting rays, lizard fish and much more.

 

Abades Beach.

Diving Tenerife Sea Horse

Depth 3-15 meters. All levels of diver. Beach entry.

This is a very good site for beginners and newly qualified divers, as well as for underwater photographers. This site offers so much life, its like swimming in an aquarium. The reef is beautiful and full of life. Angel Sharks and Rays live here, with the reef offering everything from Damsels to Moray Eels.

 

Partridge Bay.

Diving Tenerife Moray Eel

Depth 6-20 meters. All levels of diver. Beach entry.

This dive starts over a reef with varied rock formations. Then drops of to a wall, where you will find a the Garden Eels looking up through the sand. You may also find Moray Eels, Scorpion Fish, big Arrow Crabs, Nudibranchs and much more.

 

Yellow Mountain.

Diving Tenerife Yellow Mountain

Depth 2-18 meters. All level of diver. Ladder entry/exit.

This dive site is a Marine Reserve. This means fishing has been restricted and also there is a 'Control of Urchins'. All this will hopefully bring back the many types of fish and make this site more beautiful.

The dive starts over a reef where you will see a few urchins, and star fish. The reef drops from about 8 meters to a sandy bottom. Following the reef wall you will find an Eel garden and often many Angel Sharks (Nov-March). The reef turns a corner where it opens into some stunning rock formations with a swim through at 16 meters to 8 meters. Life includes arrow crabs, octopus, scorpion fish and bream.

 

Tabaiba.

Diving Tenerife Tabaiba

Depth 18-3o Meters. Wreck. Advanced divers. Ladder entry

This is the easiest shore dive EVER. Easy entry with a short swim to a wreck that lies at 30 meters. This Tug boat is intact and can be penetrated ( with proper training). There is lots of life down here ranging from Sting Rays to Octopus and Atlantic Damsels. Excellent for photography, wreck and deep specialty dives. A must for all wreck dive lovers.

Las Eras

Diving Tenerife Las Eras

Depth 12- 25 Meters. All levels of Diver. Shore entry

Beach entry with a decent to 3 meters. A lovely reef dive following the wall along to around 18 meters, where you drop of deeper for AOW divers or come up on the wall to the long swim through.
