1994 our dive boat still looked like this...
Almost 25 years ago we founded our little family business, Dive Centre ATLANTIK as the first and finest Dive Centre in Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife.
In the beginning it was father Eberhard, mother Irene and theire two sons Dirk and Thomas (image right) who startet the dive centre. Meanwhile Eberhard and Irene will "visit only" in winter and come for some fun diving. But Dirk and Thomas are still leading the dive centre ATLANTIK with a lot of enthusiasm to be one of the oldest and most professional dive centres on the whole island of Tenerife.

25 years ago on 01st of April 1994 we, the family Christoph, opend the dive centre ATLANTIK in the Hotel MARITIM**** in Puerto de la Cruz - Tenerife. Our parents, Irene and Eberhard, do no longer belong to the active instructor crew, but they are still diving once in a while and you might meet them in winter season here.
Before our opening there did not exist any dive centre at the north coast of Tenerife, we were the first to encounter the thrilling volcanic dive sites of the north. We are still a family business and our dive centre is one of the oldest and most known dive centres in Tenerife. Others have been opened and closed again or have been sold, but we are still here.
We have always attached great importance to quality, as well as in equipment and also in our courses, dives and services. During the last 25 years we did get along very well with this attitude and the numerous habitual clients, who come visiting us each year, are proof enough that quality and reliability are better than quantity and bargains.
See you soon here in the ATLANTIK
Irene, Eberhard, Dirk und Thomas
PS.: Isn't it astonishing, that Irene still fits in the neoprene jacket? Yes, it is the same as 25 years ago! :)
