Thank you for leaving us a review! We are happy to hear you and your wife enjoyed your Try Dive experience with us, especially since your wife was a little nervous to begin with. We are sorry to hear you are disappointed about not getting any photos- unfortunately your instructor was not allowed to take any photos of you underwater in order to comply with PADI standards and to keep you both safe. We hope to dive with you both again when you come back to Gran Canaria! Happy Bubbles and Many Thanks, Mike and Holly
