Today I finished my PADI DIVE MASTER COURSE with Leagues Ahead Diving. I had an extraordinary experience. After a very thorough online research I decided to conduct my training with them and the minute Sophie greeted me at the door I knew I had made the right choice. Everything from this dive shop is spotless. The equipment is in pristine condition, the instructors are knowledgeable, supportive and patient. Diving with Ilze you will learn everything you need to know to about octopuses, and experience the wonders of night diving. James is such a calm and nice person to be around, he will give you all the tips and time you need to ACE your skills. Scott shared with me his own experience as a Dive master and was super helpful while I was conducting my mapping project. After 5 weeks of training, they already feel like family. Can’t recommend them enough!!! Regarding diving in Gran Canaria i was pleasantly surprised about how much stuff there is to see on the island. Not only the place is full of life, but also the topography is stunning. Each dive spot has its own personality and things to offer. Don’t hesitate to visit!!
