Dive in and explore the crystal waters along Tenerife's southeast coast. Swim amongst tropical and sub-tropical fish and spot species that you can't find anywhere else in the world. Learn about the world below the waves from your professional instructor. The tour leaves from Abades and heads to the marine protected area, a sheltered bay with calm waters that are suitable for all swimmers. Explore the multiple reefs in the area and even enjoy the beach – a relaxing alternative to the touristy resorts in the south. Unlike scuba diving, you don't need any certification or training to snorkel, and your guide will be there to help you every step of the way. Even seniors and non-swimmers are encouraged to give it a try. We use high- quality wetsuits designed to keep everyone afloat and comfortable. Before diving in, you will be given a safety briefing to know what to expect and how to interact with marine wildlife.
