It's so amazing, and i'm only 12, it's fab. At first it's scary but as soon as you master the breathing everything else is fine and the fish are amazing, so colorful.

Hello, Just wanted to write and say THANKS for the brilliant dives we did with you last Wednesday! I had an ace time, your centre and staff are great, especially Andy - he had a really nice way about him and helped me relax and get my nerves under control. We'd hoped to come back and do another dive before returning home but unfortunately there just wasn't time - hopefully we'll be back again before long! Thanks again Emma

A 60th birthday present and something I wanted to do. Faced with reality I was very nervous. I panicked twice and got all sorts of skills muddles but Andy was a fantastic teacher and determined I would get my licence. I did!! Thanks Andy for being so patient and believing in me. You are an excellent teacher.

Nesta - From: England
Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 11:30:30 (GMT)

I was the daughter who bought the 60th Birthday present!! I had a great time too and am so proud of mum for doing it. Andy, thanks for all your time and patience with her. I also had one of my best days diving so far at the cathedral and the wreck, thank you Eduardo for taking me there.

Karen - From: England
Tuesday, September 23, 2008 at 11:30:30 (GMT)

A big thank you to EVERYONE at Davy Jones Diving - I loved every minute of it. It was great being able to go back to the dive centre between dives, even if it was just to be teased about my pink mask! (Eduardo was blatantly jealous!) Special thanks has to go to Uwe who made my Advanced so much fun. Can't recommend Davy Jones highly enough. Love and best wishes to all, Nat x

Had a fantastic three days diving with Eduardo. Credit must go to me for finding the spiny pufferfish!! I'm very proud of that feat! Glad you got some photos of it. The diving was absolutely fantastic, and I'd go back to the island just to dive with Davy Jones again. Thanks for everything!

Huge thanks for a great week, PADI OW & Scuba Diver for Adie & Jon respectively as well as a great refresher for me. Your flexibility and helpfulness made everything so easy, and the video is a fantastic souvenir. We will be back :-)

Monday, July 28, 2008 at 15:52:10 (BST)

Our 6th year back diving in Gran Canaria, and you still manage to provide us with something new! Table Top and the other old favourites still enthrall, whilst the diving around the island provided some wonderful sites. Sardina is great, and we look forward to more diving there. The deep wrecks off Lap Palmas gave a nice change, and the new more local areas also added to the trip. You have seen us both progress from near beginners to professional instructors, but always manage to give us the right sort of diving. Many thanks to everyone, and we look forward to next year.

My husband and I could not a dreamed of a better diving experience! All those from the Davy Jones crew that we met were warm, friendly and professional. Andy was beyond fabulous -- it's been awhile since I did my last dives and he was incredibly patient, encouraging and did it all with good humour and FUN! Kudos also go to Matt, Hector, Eduardo, Brian and Marilyn. And, the dive sites were #1! Thanks for a brilliant time!

Monday, September 17, 2007 at 16:05:53 (BST)

Arrived home safely this morning although very very tired! Very surprised indeed to find my EFR and Rescue Diver cert cards waiting for me on my doormat - that's a first! They usually take at least a month to come through when they get sent to Bristol! I've really enjoyed diving with Davy Jones - Andy is a brilliant instructor - just a shame I couldn't do more dives during the second week of my holiday (I was getting a bit fidgety having to sit on the sunbeds all day). More than likely I'll be back to Gran Canaria, but don't know when, but will definitely be diving with you guys when I do. Take care Suzanne

Thanks for the couple of dives I had with your people in July this year. Eduardo and Guy made the dives good fun and most enjoyable. The young boy Daryl, who went on his first open water dive with his dad, yourself and Guy still talks about his first open water experience. Do you by any chance, still have any of the underwater photos you took on the day? It would have been the afternoon of 20th July. If you manage to find any could you please email me a copy for our club website. Thanks Bill...

Bill Hamilton - From: Scotland
Thursday, August 30, 2007 at 09:03:51 (BST)

Hi Brian & Team, Just a short email to say thanks very much for the great dives! The information given and briefing prior to each dive were excellent as was the knowledge of the various marine life and where to locate them. Having watched the relentless trawl on Taurito beach each day, I was very pleased I chose a professional dive centre! I will certainly recommend you be the first dive centre to contact for all who want some great dives in Gran Canaria. Thanks Again

Alan Finn - From: Bucks
Wednesday, August 29, 2007 at 16:11:30 (BST)

Did dive before in Ibiza, but we were basically thrown in the water. I really enjoyed today and am very pleased about the 'relaxing' way of teaching. Keep up the good work!

All our thanks to both Brian and Andy along with Brians wife and daughter who had to put up with us as we fumbled our way through! You made our dives an absolute joy and the patience you showed us was very gratefully received. I can't recommend Davy Jones Diving highly enough - and what a marine reserve - beautiful!

We had a brilliant time. We were informed before we went in the water in an excellent fashion and we would recommend this diving school to anyone who wants to have a truly excellent first dive. The instructors are that good, that when I tried to swim away from them they still managed to catch me.

Chris Booth & Catherine Hawksworth - From: Manchester, England
Monday, April 02, 2007 at 18:18:32 (BST)

I have just had an amazing time! I panicked and didn't want to get in! but the instructor was wonderful - so calm and just helped me under and away we went. About 4 times I went into 'panic' mode and forgot to breathe, got water in my mask and generally went round in circles! But each time he was brilliant!! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience 'I will be back!' Sam & Tash PS my daughter really enjoyed it too!

Samantha - From: London

Hallo Brian und Familie , hallo Team , ist zwar schon ein paar Tage her (2002/2003), aber dennoch möchte ich für ein paar schöne und relaxte Tauchtage danke zu sagen. Euer familärer Service, ein Stückweit weg von den üblichen Touristen - Zentren, beweißt daß man auch auf den Canaren,sehr gute und Spass bringende Tauchgänge unternehmen kann ! Tauchfreunden aus Deutschland , kann ich diese Stätte von sehr netten, freundlichen Briten geführt, wärmsten empfehlen. Solltet Ihr nicht ohne schon , individuell geplant haben , empfehle ich dringend individuell Flug + Auto + Unterkunft solo/individuell zu buchen und die Insel und Tauchgründe so wesentlich intensiver zu erleben. Brian wird Euch ggf. auch in Sachen Unterkunft und Auto gerne zur Verfügung stehen ! Viel Spass. Alles Gute wünscht Euch Allen , Mfg. Mario / Germany

Hi Brian, Just a quick note to say thank you for the couple of days diving I enjoyed with yourselves over the Xmas break. It was good to see something different, especially as most of my experience has been in the Red Sea, and I also ended up with the EANx diver course under my belt! Special thanks to Andy & Ed too, whose calming influence really helped and made the couple of day’s diving really relaxing. Hope to be out & see you all again soon,

Brian, Just a quick note to say what a great time Heike & I had last week. It was just what we were looking for...nice accommodation, close to good quality diving. Thanks for looking after us and providing a quality service. Attached are 2 pics of the 'rare' Canarian Lobster. One we saw with you in the cave...the other we saw on the wreck dive.

Steve Millard - From: Liverpool
Saturday, December 30, 2006 at 10:04:13 (GMT)

Enjoyed the dives, the reserve is wonderful. Saw so many fish. If you want to dive the reserve Davy Jones is the place to go, Eduardo is very patient and points out anything you might miss, there is much to see. All the staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable of the reserve. They can also help you find good snorkeling sites. Also Bryan, the Tomate restaurant was excellent!

Gina & Carter - From: Darmstadt Germany
Saturday, December 23, 2006 at 10:36:01 (GMT)

Thank you for a great time - finaly got my long time wanted open water certificate - 4 days of Joy. Especially I would like to thank Brian and Annette for making this possible. You are very calm and easy both of you - and it feels safe diving with you. I hope that I'll return with Statsraaa Lehnkuhl next year so I can join you for another dive.

Thursday, August 24, 2006 at 20:21:51 (BST)

Thank you Annette and co for the lovely couple of days. Really enjoyed my first dive, absolutely fantastic, told Annette I had 5 bar instead of 50! Second dive with Brian was great especially doing headstands! My third dive was incredible, went down to nearly 20 metres! and swam under arch! My last dive was again superb, seen two octopuses, one swam past me! I'd like to thank everyone for the fantastic days and I would love to come back and read this comment soon (hopefully as a higher-qualified diver). All the best everyone (sad to leave, will miss everyone I met.. Annette especially!

10 excellent dives with excellent guides and buddies. Lots to see within the Reserve. All the information about the dives and aquatic life is on hand. Those taking part in the PADI Underwater Digital Photography course should feel assured: Brian is first class to teach and to dive with. Thanks very much.

Many thanks for a relaxed, clear and friendly dive operation. Jamie (15) and I (?) had an enjoyable and varied four shore dives. Your website is excellent and so to the operation 'end to end'. Good luck for the future.

I write to thank you for the excellent experience I had diving with you. I am glad I did the four day course though I just made it through that little PADI quiz at the end. The teaching and service I thought was very professional and all the instructors had shown a lot of patience with me. Especially thank Brian for his time and Andy for his pool sessions and his patience. Hope to dive in the red sea after this war is over, though I might be back to Gran canaria before then. Once again thankyou for the experience, the water on the last day was crystal clear. Hope to bring my digital camera next time.

Hello, Just wanted to drop you a final note to say thanks for a great day of diving.

The location was the best I have seen & I have dove 3 oceans & a lot of other less famous places! The shop was great, like a diver's cafe. The staff were all very friendly, the trip to and from "zero stress". Lunch was just the ticket too. Wish we had time for another go! The T shirt will be at the top of my collection back in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Looking forward to watching "my first movie". The fish are the stars, divers - supporting cast! Thanks again, from the whole gang!

Hi Marilyn, How are you?

I am back in the office in cold Amsterdam, I wear long sleeves, a warm top, I am freezing. I had a great week last week, diving all week, and I got the confirmation already for the certification.

I hope I will be diving with you again, maybe beginning of next year. If my friend MAAIKE shows up this week/next week, could you tell her my warm regards to her and wish for a great holiday. Best regards to all of you, freezing here,

I would just like to thank you for your professional handling of my Diveleader course at Davy Jones diving. Whilst I can't say it was easy - I enjoyed every minute of it! Please send my regards to Ed, Andy, Siobhan and Annette. And special thanks to you and Marilyn for making my social life very enjoyable. Hope to see you agin before very long.

Just thought I would drop you a short email to tell you we are now back in the UK (unfortunately) More importantly it was to thank you for your hospitality whilst we were on Gran Canaria. Also please pass on our thanks to Annette as she did a great job getting us through the course. We really enjoyed it (well apart from the dive on Monday in the not so nice conditions) and Annette did very well looking after us. Hope you have a great summer season and hope to see you again sometime.

Hi Brian/Marilyn/Siobhán/Andy/Annette/Ed!

I took my PADI OW with you about a month ago, and now I'm hooked; I've started buying my own gear slowly but surely, I've joined a dive club here, done a cold water orientation, and done a few chilly dives in Irish water. I'm already planning my next steps in diving, Sudanese Red Sea Liveaboard is strong possibility, and I'm definitely doing some Wreck diving in Dublin Bay and off the west coast in the next month. Thanks again to the brilliant staff at Davy Jones; in particular to Andy and to Annette, my combined divemaster/taxi/tour guide!

Dear Brian and Andy,

We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the support and understanding you gave me whilst diving last week with friends, (the 6 of us from Wolverhampton) It was really good of you to take time to help me build up my confidence in the water. Although I had a shaky start, especially with the 15lt tank on the rib on the Tuesday, I thoroughly enjoyed the weeks diving. I certainly felt more confident by the Friday and would have happily stayed for another week of diving! Again, thank you very much for making my first diving holiday so enjoyable. I’m not sure if this is good news but we enjoyed the diving so much we are looking at coming over later in the year! With best wishes to you all for a good summer season,

Hola Eduardo y Brian, ya estoy de vuelta en mi casa despues de las vacaciones estupendas en las Canarias. Desde luego uno de los "highlights" de esos dias has sido el ir a bucear con vosotros en el Cabron. Sois prodesionales y al mismo tiempo haceis del buceo una cosa natural, sin complicaciones. Es muy relajante. Venga! os deseo lo mejor y espero tener la oportunidad de volver a bucear con vosotros. Maxi
