Hello Brian, Yes, I have enjoyed the diving with Eduardo and Raymond. I saw from the underwater world of Gran Canaria more than I have expected. Your team do not make a job, you can feel their passion for their profession. I felt the whole time safe and in good hands. If someone is asking me for a good address for diving on Gran Canaria, I will recommend Davy Jones Diving in any case. Wishing you and your team all the best for the future. Best regards Joachim

Hallo, ich habe im Dez. 2016 bei "Davy Jones Diving" (als 60-Jähriger) an einem "PADI Discover Scuba Diving Programm" (Open Water 1) teilgenommen. Alles war perfekt, die Atmosphäre war locker und freundlich und Jessica und Hector haben mich sicher und kompetent begleitet. Ich werde bestimmt in 2017 wiederkommen. Martin

Wow back home now for over 2 weeks now and just finding time. As always it was such a great experience diving with you guys. The place is constantly changing and improving and it's always gives me such joy to visit old friends. Thank you Brian and we were so sorry that we didn't have more time to spend with you. Also big thanks to Ray(or Raymond as I am still not sure what he prefers to be called) for the great dives and letting us choose the dives. Counting the days already for our return sometime in 2018

Brilliant day at the dive school with our 10 year old granddaughter who learned to snorkel for the first time. She was given very good pre snorkelling information and then had an excellent teacher who introduced her t the magical underwater world. Something she will never forget. Thank you Brian and Sebastian

Diving experience with Davy Jones Diving was amazing, very kind , professional people with whom I've had lots of fun , could spent time in interesting aeria under the water and I've seen great underwater life which normally diving in Ireland couldn't see. I definitely recommend that diving centre. First time I've started my adventure with them about 5 years ago and hope to comeback and continue at some stage again.

Hallo, wir sind beide bei euch das erste Mal geschnorchelt und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Brett hat uns gut eingewiesen und uns im Wasser auch viel gezeigt und ist gut auf unsere Bedürfnisse eingegangen. Das ganze Personal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend und man hat sich gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Wir werden euch auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und wollen uns nochmal recht herzlich bei euch bedanken. Ganz lieben Dank, Michael und Jessica

Hallo liebes Davy Jones Team, wir waren im Juni 2016 bei euch zum Lernen wie man es richtig macht, heit zum OWD Kurs! Auch wenn es anfangs ein paar Probleme gab, ist Brian super darauf eingegangen und hat sich Zeit genommen! Leider musste mein Buddy nach dem 2. Tag des Kurses den OWD abbrechen! Aber alles gar kein Problem. Bei Davy Jones Diving wurde einfach anteilig berechnet und die Erfolge festgehalten. Nach 4 Tagen Verschnaufpause und als OWD wollte ich nun noch mal einen Tauchtag bei Davy Jones verbringen - angerufen und am gewnschten Tag wurden wir wie gewohnt zuverlssig vom Hotel abgeholt (wohl gemerkt mit meinem Buddy der ja nun wieder Mut gefasst hatte). Als ich mit Brett einen wundervollen 1&2 TG verbringen durfte bekam mein Buddy Einzelbetreuung von Jessica, die nun aus dem Urlaub wieder da war und den Kurs von Anika dann mit gaaaanz viel Einfhlsamkeit und Geduld zu Ende bringen konnte. Ganz lieben Dank an das Davy Jones Team (besonders an Jessica, Brian und Brett)!

Dear Brian We want to thank you for all your help and attention last week.. Achieving Open Water Diver was very satisfying for me and only achieved with help and tuition from Jessica, Hector and most of all Brian for your patience and care!!! For John, Achieving Advanced Open Water Diver was a fantastic achievement, with expert training and guidance from Raymond Hermans, who has a wealth of experience and knowledge... You have a superb team who deserve much praise - not forgetting Eduardo who collected us promptly every day during our diving in Gran Canaria.. We thank you and your team and hope that Raymond learns to speak Spanish before we return !!! Take care and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!!! Kind regards Kim and John

I just have small favour. Could you please put more of our pictures on Facebook as we agreed with Raymond or send them to me through my email. He took them on his camera because we left our in hotel.

Everbody was very kind, and I do apreciate very much the safe and professional way you all conduct diving. Eduardo and Hector did a great job.

Just home from our family holiday in Grand Canaria. Myself and my daughter spent two days with Brian and his team at Davy Jones. I am a PADI instructor and my daughter is Advanced. We dived in the Marine Reserve and enjoyed it very much. We dived this site on two other trips to the island. Brian, say hello to Kevin and Nina for us and wish Kevin a speedy recovery. Plenty to see. Cuttle Fish. Angle Sharke. Moray Eel. Shoal of Grunt and more. The dives are relaxing dives however they are shore Dives and where entry is easy enough the exit is a little more difficult. (Maybe I am getting to old Brian) but not to worry. ED and Brett where there to assist with getting you in and out, putting your fins on and taking them off at the end of the dive. Thanks to ED and Brett. As it was a family holiday we had arranged to dive Wednesday and Thursday however we had to change our plans as my daughter had her 10 month old son with us and it would have been un fare to the rest of the family to leave him with them two days in a row. Brian was more than understanding and we changed the second dive to Friday. We got great value for money from Brian on both some equipment rental (we had must of our own with us) and the cost of the dives. Many thanks to Brian and the team

Had 2 fantastic dives in the El Cabron marine reserve with Eduardo from Davey Jones Diving, As a novice diver I was put at ease by all the team and made to fell very welcome, Eduardo explained everything very clearly, They even let my wife sit and wait in the patio area and kept her supplied in coffee. I will definitely be diving with you guys again next year. Cheers Neil

Had a great time diving (again) with Davy Jones. This holiday, the cherries on the cake were (off course) the Las Palmas Maratón 10K, which Brian and Richard completed just in time to see me finish. :-) I can recommend a night dive - it was fun, and much easier to see the enormous puffer that took resort in Arinaga recently.

Hallo Brian, deiner Bitte etwas zu meinen Tauchgängen ( 21.08.2015 )ins Gästebuch zu schreiben möchte ich hiermit gern nachkommen. Über Internet hatte ich bereits unkompliziert zwei Tauchgänge gebucht und wurde von Eduardo am Hotel abgeholt und zu Eurer Tauchbasis gebracht. Angekommen habe ich mit einem deutschen Ehepaar die Tauchausrüstung zusammengestellt und es ging mit Brett ( spricht deutsch ), Hector und Eduardo nach kurzem Briefing auf einen ersten Tauchgang. Danke der Guides und der etwa auf einem Level Tauchenden war der1. auchgaang seehr entspannt und locker. Jeder mit einem Guide ... das ist schon sehr angenehm. Die Gruppe aht sich im Wasser auch schon mal individuell bewegen können, um mal etwas länger zu beobachten. Die Tauchtiefe von 10 m war für den errsten Tauchgang OK. Schließlich kannteen die Guides unsere Taucherfahrung ja noch nicht. Dabach ging es zurück zur Tauchbasis ( in den so schön beschreiebenen Innehof. Dort trafen wir auch auf die anderen Tauchschüler, Guides und Schnuppertaucher. Die Zeit zwischen den Tauhgängen erschien mir alerdings nicht so entspannt wie angekündigt. Das entspannte Verweilen zwischen den Tauchgängen war ein wenig geprägt von Hektik. Flaschenwechsel,Ausrüsstung wieder einladen und noch schnell einen Kaffee oder ein Wasser und schon gings wieder los. Der 2. Tauchgang lag etwas weiter ab und wir waren nahezu unter uns. Diesmal waren Brett und Hector dabei, die uns wohl auch besser einschätzen konnten. Tauchtiefe 15 m und gute Sicht. Brett hat sogar einen Engelshai aufgespürt, ansonsten Fische in großem Artenreichtum, mehrere Rochen, Sepia, Tintenfisch und Müräne ... alles wieder in sehr entspannter Athmosphäre. Der Ein- und Ausstieg war allerdings über die Felsen an der Küste etwas beschwerlich, wer einen Steg haben möchte oder mit Boot aufs Wasser gebracht werden möchte, sollte vorher fragen. Ich hatte jederzeit vertrauen in die Guides und hatte einen entspannten Tauchtag. Ich bin mir sicher, dass Davx Jones Diving die richtige Wahl war und das Meeresschutzgebiet bei Arinaga die beste Gegend auf GC für Tauchgänge ist. Wir waren in Puerto de Mogan ... da war es unter Wasser nicht sehr spannend. Ich kann DJD wirklich empfehlen, egal ob Hobby- ( Urlaubstaucher ) oder mehr. Der Atlantik ist sicher nicht vergleichbar mit dem Roten Meer, aber das erwartet man ja auch nicht. Wenn ich mal wieder nach GC komme, werde ich ganz sicher bei Euch tauchen. Liebe Grüße aus dem kühlen Deutschland.

Good Afternoon Brian, I would just like to belatedly on behalf of Jules and myself to thank Eduardo and yourself for our 2 dives on 29th June. They were superb and although Jules was very nervous with a very difficult first dive entry into the sea, the patience and help Eduardo gave her was brilliant and helped her to enjoy the 2 dives. Our sincere thanks again and we will post a recommendation on Tripadvisor Kind Regards

Hey, Wir wollten uns hiermit nochmal für den einzigartigen Schnupperkurs bei euch bedanken. Ihr habt einen Kindertraum für uns wahr werden lassen und das mit solch einer Kompetenz und Gelassenheit eurer Seits. Es ist eine Erfahrung , die wir nicht mehr missen wollen. Einen besonderen Dank an Brett der uns in einfacher Sprache uns als völlige Tauchanfänger alles erklärt und gezeigt hat und der Melanie durchs Meer geführt hat. Auch einen großen Dank an Brian, der Marvin im Wasser begleitet hat. Hector, dir auch ein herzliches Dankeschön, er war der dritte im Bunde bei uns. An eurer Seite fühlte man sich sehr sicher. Sie fragten regelmäßig nach unserem aktuellen Befinden. Danke danke danke. Es War einfach großartig. Unsere Emotionen können wir kaum im Zaun halten. Bei unserem Schnupperkurs befanden wir uns 31 Minuten und bei 9 Meter Tiefe im Wasser. Die Gruppe bestand aus 6 Leuten, wobei auf zwei Leute je ein Tauchlehrer kam. Davy Jones Diving ist nur weiterzuempfehlen! :))))

Just wanted to give some feedback on my scuba diver course taken with Jessica in November 2014. I was on my 40th birthday trip with most of the family and didn't have much time to myself for obvious reasons, Brian suggested I take the scuba diver course given my time constraints. i was picked up by Eduardo from outside my hotel and taken direct to the dive centre on both days and Eduardo even dropped me with the rest of my family go karting, everyone was really friendly and would go out of their way to help, Jessica was absolutely fantastic, couldn't be better, we had a great laugh even with the serious stuff, really want to thank Brian and all his staff for a great experience and I cant recommend them enough if your going to Gran Caneria to dive, if your contemplating diving when in the area then don't hesitate Brian and the team will look after you, thanks again, Corey

Hi Brian, I thoroughly enjoyed the diving, the site at El Cabron, and its marine life, quality of the kit, ease of joining in as a single diver, help in arranging accommodation in Arinaga and I thought your instructors were v professional. The young chap was good at sorting out any problems, helping us to get in /out safely and keeping us observed during the dives. Briefings were spot on… all well organised throughout… felt v confident that maintenance was in hand for everything inc air quality. Facilities and shade was great between dives and close location to the dive sites.. all worked a treat – v easy going atmosphere. Communication at booking was great – lots of good links and info, responsive, helpful e mails, easy to contact. Overall a lovely couple of dives. Thank you again for your welcome to Arinaga! We took your advice and went to Agaete and did lots of snorkelling there also in Sardina, leaving the hikes to early mornings.. lovely seafood and v quite, beautiful area, gin clear water, lots of fish. Looking forward to our next trip to the Canaries! Best wishes Emily

Hallo Brian Der Tauchkurs hat Ivan und mir sehr gut gefallen. Sollten wir nächstes Jahr wieder nach Gran Canaria reisen, werden wir bestimmt bei Euch einen oder mehrere Tauchgänge buchen. Es hat mich sehr gefreut, dass ich meinen AOW-Kurs mit dem ‚Chef‘ machen durfte. Nochmals herzlichen Dank, dass Du für mich Zeit genommen hast, obwohl Du in dieser Zeit sicher sehr engagiert bist. Ich wünsche Dir, Deiner Frau und dem Davy Jones Diving alles Gute für die Zukunft und hoffe, dass wir uns bald wieder einmal sehen. Lieber Gruss Patrick & Ivan

Ciao Brian & Jessica, We wanted to thank you for the great experience. Sorry Brian we didn't say goodbye to you personally but we were a little bit tired yesterday. Particular thanks to Jessica who taught us the basics with patience. It's still incredible how much interior calm she has underwater and, since yesterday we were talking about what a teacher must leave to his students, we hope we could have the same stilness and respect for the Sea and its creatures Jessica has. Here attached our graduation photo. Ciao and say hi to Hector and Brett. Luca & Veronica

The whole team including the the driver who picked us up were friendly. It was our second time diving (first time was in Red Sea) and must say the marine life in 'El cabron' is spectacular.

Hi Brian - just to say thank you for your assistance with me diving last week. If you hadn't been able to help me with my equipment, there's no way i could have dived as my back has been really bad recently (having been in hospital the week before with it). So thank you for making it possible. Best, Emily

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 at 12:30:30 (GMT)

just like to say a big thanks to Brian for seeing me through my first dive a couple of weeks ago, felt so safe and it has to rate high up on my list of great experiences. bit nervous to start with but once I settled with the breathing it was great, I saw loads of fish, star fish and a jelly fish that floated right past our faces ! It felt a privilege to be under the water :-) so give it a try if your thinking of doing it and definitely if in the gran canaries get down to Davy jones, once again a big thanks to Brian.

Hallo Brian, 3 x Danke für die 6 tollen Tauchgänge, die ich bei Euch machen konnte. Schon in der Basis fühlte ich mich von Anfang an wohl und sicher. Alles war top organisiert. Was mir besonders gefallen hat, war die Ruhe und Zeit vor den Tauchgängen und die Erfahrungen Deiner Guides. Sie waren so zuvorkommend, halfen bei jeden kleinen Problem. Die Tauchgänge habe ich voll genießen können, kein " Rudeltauchen " und die Unterwasserwelt war fantastisch. Bei meinen letzten TG sahen ich auch noch zwei Engelhaie!! Besonderen Dank noch an Brett, Eduardo und Graham die ihre Sache sehr gut machen. Dir lieber Brian möchte ich alles, alles gute zu Deiner neuen Tauchbasis wünschen und wir werden uns wiedersehen. Gut Luft, Doris

Hi Brian, many thanks for my fantastic time in Arinaga. I had no diving expierence when I first came to your diving school, but from the first minute on, you gave me this special feeling of safety and so every dive with you and your team was a pleasure for me. I was really surprised of the beautiful sealife in Gran Canaria and you made it possible to see my first seahorse in my life. Best wishes for your future and I hope we will see us again - Peter

A particular thank you to Eduardo as he was our regular guide how he manages to spot some of the things is beyond me any way had a fantastic time diving with Davy Jones would recommend to any one thanks again for a fantastic time

I had a great time diving with Davy Jones..especially with Brian.Although my diving experience was cut short I saw some great marine life and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. The marine reserve is a great place to dive and also very good for learning. As a beginner I found the experience of the instructors a great help as regards to explaining every detail of, dive equipment right through to actual entry into the water and the dive itself. All in all a great experience and I would recommend them whole heartedly

Hello Brian, I would like to thank you for a fantastic experience during the diving at your center. I was very excited to see the underwater enviroment in the Marine Reserve, with many fish around which I really enjoyed. It was a huge experience and for me it was my first dive ever. It was very nice from the beginning, I got little afraid in the middle, but the rest was just awesome. Actually managing to change my regulator for Brett’s in the deepest spot of our dive was a little challenging, but satisfying because thanks to the briefing I knew what I am doing at the moment. Unfortunately I don’t expect to come to Canaries any time soon again, but if I will, I will definitelly dive again with you!

Before we visited Gran Canaria, we already had contacted Davy Jones Diving by e-mail. Not only was their reply fast, but also very professional, yet personal. This gave us the feeling that we had made the right choice. And after three weeks of diving with Davy Jones Diving, we still feel it was one of our best decisions. Our son Stefan is a licensed diver, but only 11 years old. Brian and his team gave him special attention and made him feel safe. And when the conditions at Arinaga made it difficult to get in or out of the water, the staff took us all the way to Sardina del Norte, in the northwestern part of the island. This way my wife, my son and I were able to dive under good conditions and we saw lots of rays. The briefing for the night dive was probably the best I had so far and the dive itself was relaxed and fun. Our daughter Xanthe (age 8) did her very first scuba dive in the sheltered “pool” of Arinaga, with lots of life to explore. She enjoyed every minute of it (Thanks Graham!). Together the four of us did 25 dives, so I guess we have a pretty good view of what Davy Jones Diving is about. Professional, flexible, relaxed are terms that come to mind. I want to thank Brian and his team for the great time we had and for their personal approach. Whenever we revisit Gran Canaria, we will definitely choose Davy Jones Diving again!

A big thank you to everybody at Davy Jones Diving for all the time and patience you gave me whilst recently taking my PADI Scuba Diver open water dives. My instructor, Graham was very professional yet friendly. I am extremely appreciative of the individual attention I was given and would highly recommend the diving school to any divers and prospective divers visiting Gran Canaria.

Fast ein Jahr ist es her, als wir das letzte mal in der Davy Jones Tauchschule waren. Ich bzw. wir können nur jedem Anfänger empfehlen hier seinen Tauchschein (Open Water) zu machen. Wir wurden sehr freundlich in der Tauchschule begrüßt und auch der Unterricht bei Brian war sehr kompetent und herzlich. Zwar haben wir seine Nerven wohl strapaziert aber er hat sich nie etwas anmerken lassen und uns immer zuvorkommend behandelt! Die Tauchgänge haben immer sehr viel Spaß gemacht und das vorherige Briefing war informativ. Man hat sich in guten Händen gesehen. Immer wieder gern udn wir freuen uns auf den nächsten Besuch im Mai.

Just thought I would send a quick email thanking you for the amazing dives I did with yourselves on the 14th September at La Calletta. The second dive was absolutely awesome seeing all the rays coming in to feed and also the angel shark right at the start of the dive. Best dive so far for me. I was just wondering whether there were any photos or video footage of the dives that could be emailed to me. I know Graham the instructor I was with took some and thought it would be a nice keep sake. Many thanks once again for a great day's diving.

Hello Everyone! :) Just a quick email to say thanks for an amazing week! I really enjoyed the diving, and seeing everyone again! I'm really glad I was able to come for the party, and it was such a good experience being on my own. The trip to Caletta on the Friday was a lovely change as well, and although the mantas decided to be unsociable, I really enjoyed the two dives! Hope your trip to England went okay, looks like you chose the best week to be away from Arinaga by the looks of the weather! Please send my thanks to Gauthier as well, the apartment was lovely! Thanks for the lift to the airport, and see you in February!

First class dive centre with excellent helpful and professional staff. Dive sites were accurately described at briefing with even more detail given at the dive site. Travelling to the site, kitting up and Diving was calm and relaxed with no rushing around. Lots of life to see with great dive guides who help point out the things that are easily missed. I had a wonderful time, highly recommended. Many thanks to all.

Hi Brian A short message to thank you and the team . Getting into diving was far from being as easy then I thought and I owe Graham a lot for having me gone though it. I have sincerely appreciated the professionalism and seriousness of the Center but beyond all, it's Graham ability to give confidence that made the difference. I leave with the impression of having the keys into a new world and I just hope to find in the next place I'd go to, as excellent professionals as you are. All the best Frederic

I want to say a big THANK YOU to you, it was a great and fun adventure to go out (or better: down) with you guys and do nothing but bubbling and staying calm :-D We both are already looking for our next dives ... that by itself should let you know that it was a success. However, without your help and guidance it would all have been for naught. But, here we are, and still excited to do more. It was a really great and useful time, well spent ... and I believe we both are looking more ... eh ... sportive now than we ... hummm ... I did before X-) Thx for the photos, I started looking for a camera case and actually found one (not by Panasonic) ... price looks a bit outrageous but maybe I succumb to the madness and buy it. See you again (not too soon, of course, the money needs to flow and vacation is not to be had very often).

Spent a day with Davy Jones Diving on the Discover Scuba Course. Booked early as a present for my girlfriends birthday via email and it couldnt have been easier and the communication was first class. The whole experience from the moment we got to the dive centre was amazing! My girlfriend was quite nervous to begin with but with such an amazing team of divers (GRAHAM in particular) helped her feel at ease and ended up absolutely loving the dive. We both left the dive centre wanting more and are both looking towards getting our PADI diving certificate. Again a massive thanks to Graham and the team for an amazing day and something we will remember forever. Hopefully see you soon. Lucas and Amy.

I’d just like to say thanks to everyone at Davy Jones for my PADI course and for the hotel you recommended. The diving was wonderful – I’ve had a few health setbacks trying to complete a PADI course and to finally do it in such genial surroundings was excellent. Brian is a very good, considerate teacher, Graham was also most helpful and friendly and you seem to attract some very jovial customers. I met a German woman who was one the most jolly, bubbly people I have ever encountered; she was fluent in Spanish and English and never stopped laughing. We were very impressed with the IFA Faro, it suited us perfectly and we hope to return in 2014 – and do some more diving with you. Hope you have a great 2012, Regards, Rick

Hi Brian and Marilyn, We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for the great diving during our holiday last week. We had an excellent time once we got started and really enjoyed diving the El Cabron reserve. We were particularly impressed with the quality of your staff and enjoyed diving knowing we were safe and also getting the best spots due to their experience. Diving with Brian on our last day it showed that he still clearly has a passion for diving and it's a pleasure to see this. We have uploaded some of our best and most interesting photos to photobucket for you to browse if you are interested, the link is below. I remember Brian was interested in seeing the photos of the angry crab from our last dive..
Thanks again, we are recommending Davy Jones Diving to our club in the UK and all who we dive with.

Dear Brian, I just wanted to say thank you for the week I spent completing the full course of BSAC Sports Diver. The training I received was very thorough and all aspects of the course were covered in full with plenty of practical training. In fact with the diver rescue element you certainly kept me fit! Although much of the BSAC element was with yourself I would also like you to know that all the dive leaders were very friendly and helpful throughout the week. In terms of the dives themselves I got to see an abundance of sea life and meeting an angel shark almost became common place :) Overall a great adventure with high calibre and experienced dive leaders. Davy Jones Dive Centre is certainly on the highly recommended list.

There's also a video (shot on a very poor camera, sorry abot that) which should be embedded at the bottom of that page, or else here:
I also have another video of one of your customers de-kitting midway through a dive (ask Uwe for details). It's a bit of fun. I've emailed her and assuming she's happy about it, thought you might like it for your Facebook page...? Let me know.
All the best to all at Davy Jones and hope to dive with you again one day.

Dear Brian and Marilyn, I should like to thank you all at Davy Jones Diving for making my recent diving experience with you such a pleasure, as a complete novice to scuba diving I found learning to dive with you a great way to have a holiday in the sun and also achieve a long time ambition to ‘swim with the fishes’ In particular I should like to thank your instructor Graham Parmley, whose expertise and encouragement gave me the confidence to complete not only my PADI Open Water Diver certification but also my Advanced PADI Open Water Diver certification. Once again, my thanks to you all. Regards, Tony Gibbons

Just a quick note to say a big thank you to everyone for another great trip here to the Canary Islands. I got 16 fantastic dives in with loads of excellent pictures and the accommodation in Angelot is fantastic too. You left Davy Jones Diving in very capable hands! I've sent you a photo of a horrible, nasty, evil-looking thing [Uwe!] and a sea hare. It's a quite good example of the use of a wide-angle lens. I plan to sort out my photos over Xmas/New Year and I'll be sending various people some of the better ones. If everyone else is really unlucky Brian and myself can talk at epic length about underwater photography the next time I'm over. And can someone remind Uwe to not feed the sharks?

Dear Brian
On behalf of Neil and myself I would like to thank you and the team for providing us with a great week of diving in some trying weather conditions.
We both felt that the team were the most dedicated and professional we have dived with.
Our thanks also for providing us with equipment until ours turned up and for taking the time and effort to alter the B.C. so that Neil could use it.
We hope to dive with you again.

Hi Everyone!
I was going to write, but with the postal service being as slow as it is, it probably wouldn't have arrived until I come see you next!
I am emailing just to say a big thank you for such a fantastic week! I thoroughly enjoyed every single dive, definately including the night dive! (Graham might remember what I said as the fins went on in the pitch black! - 'Oh my god, this is the most terrifying thing ever!')
I have been showing off all my pictures, even making my parents and grandparents sit through all of them! I'm surprised my dad's patience lasted! Thanks again, and a big muchas gracias to Eduardo! :)

It was a lovely and relaxing experience. I was worried about getting water in my mask, but Graham soon calmed my nerves after showing me the correct way to remove the water. Being underwater was exhilarating, yet calming! There is so much to see, I will definitely dive again and if it is Gran Canaria Davy Jones Diving Centre will be my first choice. Thankyou for the wonderful experience.

Hi all, Just like to say a GREAT, BIG THANK YOU!!!! to Brian, Marilyn, Uwe, Eduardo and Graham for providing two great courses and some fantastic diving in May 2010. I feel I have shared my diving experiences with friends and can't wait to return to do some more. Nice to see the article about Gran Canaria in the June issue of DIVE magazine with Davy Jones Diving so prominently on page 83. Best wishes, Paul

Just a quick email, rather belatedly I'm afraid, to thank you for looking after us so well during our recent trip. We found everything to be excellent from the facilities at the centre, the equipment and of course the diving itself. You have a great team and please pass on our thanks to Graham particularly. He looked after William really well and, as you know, your initial training stays with you for life. Being a teenager William is never effusive in his praise but he did say that Graham's course was far superior to the pool and theory training he'd done in the UK. Believe me, coming from him, this is praise indeed! We had a bit of a long journey back to the UK because of the volcano (scheduled flights to Madrid followed by hire car to Calais and then ferry) but not as bad as some and we still had a great holiday. Hopefully we'll be back to Gran Canaria in the no too distant future and will have the pleasure of diving with you again. Best wishes Richard

Hi Brian, Thanks for a great weekend! The boys from Jersey were very happy with the dives so all good. I learnt heaps and I am much more comfortable with my diving now and you have given me some excellent bench marks! I wanted to try the video cam just for fun to see if it would pick up under night conditions. It didn’t! Just a heads up for your info. The low light is just too low for it to be worthwhile. There are some scary bits looming out of the black so I will try to cut these into something useful. The problem with the camera or the cameraman just not enough light – worth knowing if someone else comes into the shop with the same idea. Thanks mate,

Dear Marilyn and Brian, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for making my introduction to diving so enjoyable, so exciting and so much fun. Right from my first enquiry, you were exceptionally helpful, friendly and professional. Please pass on my thanks to Uwe and Graham for making me feel so relaxed and reassured - their enthusiasm and love of diving is contagious! I've only been home a few hours and I'm working on planning my next diving holiday already... With very best wishes and again many, many thanks, Jane x

Hello Marilyn and Brian, I want to thank you all for everything you did during the course and my extra day diving. I enjoyed it so much. Not that I am a prof now but at least I can go diving at greater depth with some more confidence. Although your instructors didn't exactly do the parts of the course I chose, they had other ideas, they learned me a lot more. I still have to practice a lot but that is also possible in the cold waters of the Netherlands and of course somewhere in a foreign country. When there are friends of mine who want to do a course and they are in the neighbourhood I certainly will recommend them your diving centre. Thanks very much and also my best regards to Uwe, Graham and Ed. Regards, Cor Stuij

I am writing this to you back from my office in Hungary, remembering the great dives I had just a few days ago, last Friday. I thank you and your great team for a fantastic day! I'd just like to politely enquire, if you'd have a chance to send me that one picture with the angel shark, so I can flash it around to my staff and just as importantly to my wife... Thanks a lot and all the best,

Hi Marilyn and Brian, Just a quick note to say a big thank you too you both for a very enjoyable AOW course. Could you pass on my sincere thanks to Uwe for some excellent tuition. He did not think that he had much to impart to me, but rest assured that when one is used to mainly grovelling along the bottom of old coal docks in the pitch black up to your elbows in silt, peak performance buoyancy control is a joy to master. I hope to return next January or February for a Rescue Diver Course. Thanks once again, Regards, Phil Rose.

Hi to everyone, I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone for helping to make ten enjoyable dives over the New Year holiday period. Even though I did not get to see any of those elusive Angel Sharks! Keep up the good work. Look forward to diving with you again.

Hello to Brian, Andy and every one at Davy Jones. This is just an email to thank you for the fantastic experience I had when I did two discover diving days with you in December (I enjoyed the first one so much Paul (my hubby) bought me the second day as one of my Christmas presents!) I know I have already said it, but once again a BIG thank you to Andy - I don't think I would have been brave enought to do it without his help and assurance. Now we are back in the UK (Paul snowed up in Brecon and me snowed up in Blackburn!!!) I keep watching the DVD of my dive and wishing we were back in Gran Canaria. I have been looking into the local scuba diving schools, but have decided to do the PADI eLearning and then hopefully we can come back out to see you some time soon when I will be able to complete my course with you. Once again thank you and hopefully we will see you soon, Anne

Hi now back in 'not so warm n' sunny' England - just wanted to say a huge thanks to you all. Diving was amazing and Uwe - our instructor was brill. I'd recommend diving with Davy Jones to anyone. Best Wishes for the New Year Gen (the one who didn't like mask clearing! But did it anyway:-) )

My son Austyn and I completed our four Open Water referral dives with you during July 2007 and since then I have passed my Advanced Open Water and dived in The Maldives and both of us in Sharm - the bug got to me. I've rebooked another weeks diving in Sharm this year (I seem to be a warm water diver!).
But one thing I will never forget was my first Open Water dives undertaken with Brian and Andy in the beautiful Arinaga reserve and all the help and hospitality we had from both yourselves and your wife and daughter (send Annette our congratulations, she probably won't remember us but she was our hotel pick-up that week in your brand new minibus), it was much appreciated as both my son and I were very nervous at the time. Andy should remember me, I was the one who slipped over just as we were making our way down the 'cliff' and sliced my palm open - I still have the scar to prove it! All the diving took place whilst my wife was snorkeling above us.
Anyway, good luck through the credit crunch and I'll try very hard to get back over to GC in the coming years for a reminder as to how pretty the Arinaga reserve is (has the old dive centre to dive site transport given up the ghost yet?) I've read the Dive Magazine and seen an article or two in the same magazine concerning the marine reserve - lots of good publicity.

I would like to start off by saying you have a top notch operation, and we truly enjoyed our diving weekend. We are now back home in Spain, and cannot stop talking about how wonderful our 3 dives were. Certain things you guys did just made the experience even better. The quick answering of all my email question, planning a night dive, picking us up, having nitrox, gentle teaching, great equipment, wonderful staff, the list goes on and on. I could not have ask for a beter experience. Thank you so much!
