Paradise Divers – Diving in Tenerife – Divemaster Internship – Week 4 – Paula


Welcome back to my blog.

This week we had some courses going on. Unlucky, I had a cold and I struggle a bit equalizing my ears, I was not able to go down at some of the dives.

Firstly, Angie came from Washington to do her PADI Advance course. After doing her Open Water course in Washington DC in 7 ºC water she did not have any problem with the local water temperature (18ºC currently).  With Angie we went Diving to the wreck in Tabaiba and wpic3e saw pretty amazing things, a lot of flabelina and big anemones also we did the Underwater Naturalist course which was great trying to spot all the life – Especially Nudibranch for Angie.


We then done a Discover Scuba Diving course  in El Puertito with Caitlin also  Angie  joined us, Caitlin was inspired and decided to do the Scuba Diver Course and be able to be Angie buddy. Caitlin and Angie had been to Seville before coming to Tenerife and brought us some Lomo fresh from a pig farm… it was very good!! In addition, we also had two PADI Open Water students from Poland (Anna and Kris). They all did very good and succeeded at their courses!!!DSCF3986

We had some days of very strong wind, which carry sand from the Sahara (Calima), so the air was thick and the sea was surge and visibility was not as good as normal. Therefore, some dives of the courses were more challenging, nonetheless everything went well and I learn a lot at them.

We get to meet “Humpy”, which show up at El Puertito, it is much bigger than the other turtles and it moves really slow. We can recognize it because Humpy has a hump at the shell and a scar.


At the end of the week, two new interns have started Erin and Benjamin- they are from California and they come straight from South Korea. I am sure we will have a good time all together. Check also their blogs!!!




Until next week!! Gone diving…
