Leaving Tenerife

Finished my diving trip now, and I’m flying back to sunny Manchester tomorrow afternoon.

I’ve managed to do 7 dives this week, which is three less than I should have done. I had to can a dive this morning because of a equipment malfunction, and I missed a day due to blocked sinuses.

The dives I have done, however, have been very fun. I’ll post some pictures and a more complete log of what I’ve been doing soon.

-Tenerife Scuba, fueled by caffeine.


Made it to Tenerife, and learned a few things along the way:

  1. Don’t forget to check in online when flying ryanair. They WILL charge you for your foolishness.
  2. Get travel insurance BEFORE leaving the country. Most travel insurers will not offer diving insurance on its own. I solved this by signing up with Dive Assure, on  a seven day policy. We’ll see how this pans out.
  3. Don’t dive with the remnants of a cold. No matter how much you think you’re better. You’re not, and your sinuses will punish you for it. Idiot.

I might get to go on a night dive this week. Excited and nervous about it. I might get a cheap underwater camera at some point, and stress test it.
