About Us.

Our Story.

Two Friends and an Idea

What is now a one of the most popular dive centres on the island, One Two Dive started out as just an idea of two friends. While teaching and managing dive centres all over the wold in places such as Greece, Egypt, South Africa, Thailand and New Zealand they could not find a dive school that would fulfil their high expectations of quality and service.

We are now proud to say, that we have made this dream come true.

As a PADI 5* IDC Dive Centre, One Two Dive offers you the highest quality and service for everything related to scuba diving. From taking your first breath underwater, through your Open Water certification all the way up the the endless possibilities of technical diving. Our highly experienced team will be there to give you comfort and make your scuba diving adventure a fun memory you will never forget.

We work according to the PADI diving system, which is recognised all over the world. With professional training, high attention to detail and high quality equipment, we will make you feel relaxed, safe and comfortable at all times on the surface and in the water.

We do not like rushing our students towards their certification. It is important to us, to keep our groups small and teach you as individuals, not numbers. We love creating great experiences for you and inspire love and respect for nature.

We’re passionate about the world of scuba diving and hope you will become so too.

The Dive Center.

Located inside the 4* Hotel GF Isabel Family, our dive centre offers everything you need to start the day right.

Freshly brewed (free) coffee, a comfy sofa and a flat screen TV prepare you for an amazing diving adventure. An airconditioned classroom allows you to concentrate on theory classes without interruption and our workshop with large glass windows provides you with the best possible view of our service technician in action.

After a long day out in the sea, or after a successfully completed course we love inviting you for a (free)  beer to chat about the day and your experiences underwater.  We have designed a meeting point especially for this purpose and consciously taken the decision to serve beer from the draft in order to save cans or bottles, that might otherwise end up in the ocean.

How to get here:
We are located INSIDE the Hotel Isabel Family in Costa Adeje. To find the dive centre, you simply walk through the reception of the hotel (please register as a visitor at the reception of the hotel) following the signs towards our dive centre. And tadaa: There we are.

To make life easier, please just give us a call or send a message and we will meet you at the reception 🙂

Vera

Intern

Hi, my name is Vera and I am working as an intern for 12dive. My internship period is for the next 5 months and this is my final internship for my training as Supervisor, Leisure & Hospitality.

What I want to do after my education and internship is working in the outdoor sports and activities. I like to be busy and enjoy standing in front of groups. Hence my choice is to do an internship at 12dive. My goal at 12dive is to learn a lot from everyone and I finished my Open Water Diver & the Advanced Open Diver already. It is a nice and cosy team and everyone helps each other and is ready for each other. I cannot wait to discover and explore more of the underwater world.

For now, you can find me behind the reception and I will be happy to answer your questions. Hopefully I will see you soon with us to make your dive a reality!

Robin

Hi! My name is Robin and you'll mostly find me underwater, working as an instructor.

I already started diving 7 years ago. Since I started falling in love with the underwater nature so much, I decided to keep my diving education going and got certified as an instructor 3 years ago.

I love taking people to the water for their first dive and teaching them on several dive sites on Tenerife. So don't wait too long & join me in the world of diving.

Franzi

Hi!
I´m Franzi, and for the next 10 weeks you will be able to find me @12dive!

My goal as an intern is to get to know all about the dive center, including not only customer care or finances but also diving itself! Therefore I started my Open Water Course to gain some experience.

After my internship I will continue studying Coastal and Marine Management in the Netherlands. But no worries! Till November you´ll find me in the shop, ready to answer all your questions and fulfill your requests!

Jonah

My name is Jonah and I currently work as an intern for 12dive.

I already completed my Open Water Course 2 years ago in Australia. Here on Tenerife, I took a refresher course, to freshen up my skills, and I also started the Advanced Open Water Diver, to gain more experience.

After I complete my Internship I will get back to my study: Coastal and Marine Management. Therefore my goal during the internship is to learn and gain much experience that can help me in my study as well.

So let´s dive in! And hopefully soon I will not only be helping you out in the office but also in the ocean!
