  • I was looking for a kid friendly PADI accredited dive school to bring my 2 boys on their first dive. After reading the reviews of this place it seemed like a good fit and it definitely did not disappoint. From the moment Bart (our instructor) sat down with us to explain the basics of underwater safety it was obvious that he is great with kids. He had a really great way of explaining things and I felt very comfortable entrusting him with my kids safety. We had a really enjoyable dive, the boys loved it and are already planning their next dive. I would highly recommend Bart and the team to anyone looking to scuba dive in Lanzarote.
  • Fastastic instructors, friendly atmosphere and great facilities. This is our 2nd visit to DCL and 3rd speciality completed with the team. The centre is well placed with free parking literally a few steps away, directly next to the centre you'll find a number of bars/resteraunts and easy shore access to the house reefs and dive boat. Facilities - changing cubicles, toilets, shower, filtered water, try dive pool, class room, kit storage and outside benches. Dive sites - multiple sites across the area and a good number located directly in front of the centre which can be accessed within a minute walk. Equipment - hire kit clearly replaced regularly, gas room with Nitrox, large dive RIB with spine ladder, DPVs available and much more! Staff - we have dived with Damo, Marc, Salva and Mara - all of them have been professional, fun and diligent. Damo is a fantastic instructor and has completed 2 of our courses; his ability to adapt to the individual and make learning fun was the reason for our return this time! Marc, Damo and Salva completed our 3rd speciality (Night) and after some early trepidation this has now become our favourite. The three of them made the dives enjoyable but taxing with additional skills and tasks that made this speciality come to life. Summary - a no brainer if your looking for a dive centre on Lanzarote! Thanks to all the team for making us feel so welcome again and for delivering a fantastic learning environment for us!!
  • I would give 6 stars - It all happened with some test diving in the pool of our hotel. Our son, 12 and not exactly a "people person" at that time, took to it like a fish to water. The wish to dive was born. Lucky us - Bart, Marian, Damian and everybody else did an excellent job and since that "fateful" :) pool dive in 2012 (I think) Every year we go to Lanzarote, our son spends a lot of time at the Dive College. It's a joy to see how the core team welcomes him. The whole team has a great attitude. The service of the Dive College is excellent, transfer to and from the hotel in time, very throughout explanations, every year they suggest a "get used to it again" dive first, a dive directly from the beach in front of the Dive College. In the first years I've been there on the first day with my son (I had to fill out all forms) and I was able to see how detailed they explained everything again and again. I always was convinced that he is in excellent hands. The one year we didn't go to Lanzarote but Mallorca (2015), the dive team there was impressed on how well trained our son was. Last year he's got a fever for a few days and had to take a short break in diving and when he was able to go back, he wasn't very keen on the dive locations sceduled that day. He'd already been there twice. So they actually arranged another dive for him, which was so very thoughtful and nice. Our son is already looking forward to the next time he'll be able to dive at Dive College.
  • Definitly the best diving school in Lanzarote! The staff is brilliant and they speak many languages. We took a diving trip to the Altantic Museum as well as a visit to "the wall" where we managed to see an angel shark! The Museum was also wonderful and very unique. Thank you for an excellent service, we are looking forward to our next dive!
  • Rude staff! Waited with my children for a group of divers with there instructor to walk down to the beach and not even and smile or a thank you. Then was walking up the stairs and what looked like the dive master came down the stairs. We have way and again nothing. I’m a padi diver and these guys seem like they think they own the beach. I will not be using this place.
