I live in Tenerife and know that there are quite a few dive centers that will take a 14 year old. The one i would recommend would be sol divers in Costa Del Silencio as they are the ones who just did my 10 year olds padi seal course, they are very proffesional, hope this helps.

I would suggest you change your arrangments or your son should not dive.
Try last minute arrangments to Greece especially Crete or Zakynthos (Turtle Island) the diving is as good as in Spain if not better............. Not the North side of Crete !!!!

Unfortunately Spanish Law rules that children must be 16 years or over to take part in diving activities. But these guys seem to take younger divers.

My Son who is 14 years old is having scuba diving lessons here in England, we are going on holiday to Tenerife in September and we have been told you have to be 16 years old (Spanish Law) to dive in Tenerife. Does any one know if there are some dive centres that take 14 year olds and is it safe.

Regards

Dear All,
Please be aware that as of last year (2006) we are allowed to teach and dive with junior divers, more or less as PADI standards set out. This is great news for all dive centres and instructors based here in Tenerife and beyond. Please come and dive in the Canary Islands, bring your family and children and enjoy the amazing marine life and brilliant year round diving conditions.
You wont be disappointed!
