David is the only Technical and CCR Instructor in Tenerife. We are proud to say that David is the highest qualified Instructor in Tenerife.
Nicky is a PADI Divemaster, TDI qualified, she is also a TDI nitrox gas blender. Nicky ensures the smooth running and logistics for the dive centre.
David starting teaching in Ireland with the help of Nicky through pure enthusiasm for diving. Due to the vast amount of wrecks and deep waters on the North Coast of Ireland, David and Nicky’s passion grew and they progressed into technical divers.
From Rathlin Island to Malin Head the diving was so diverse from shallow reefs and drop offs to deep wrecks like The Audacious and The Carthaginian. Another very famous wreck was The Laurentic. It is rumored to have gold bars still in the wreck and she lies in 40 mts.
David and Nicky decided to offer divers more and they converted a Scottish fishing vessel into a dive liveaboard. Onboard M.V. Gleaners they taught courses and ran dive expeditions. Please view our liveaboard "Tekkie Pics"
Our boat, "The Celtic Wave", harboured in Las Galletas, Tenerife.
Loading from the pontoon is easy and safe, no swimming out to the boat or equipment in the sand.
Due to weather and extreme conditions they decided to move to Tenerife to operate a dive centre. Dive 24-7 was now the ultimate operation for teaching recreational, technical and rebreather diving. The abundant marine life and underwater landscaping was the perfect place to encourage divers and non-divers alike for recreational diving and courses. Also the clear warm waters gave excellent conditions for technical training. Tenerife had no technical diving centers until Dive 24-7 so this is now the only centre that offers specialized training and diving to those who wish to continue or progress into technical diving.
The Dive 24-7 Team have the knowledge and experience to ensure your enjoyment and safety. Unlike other centre's on the island we had previous diving business experience before coming to Tenerife.
