The 10 day massive operation by 25 Guardia Civil officers, a robot video submarine and volunteers from local dive centres in search of the 2 missing divers has now been scaled down.

The budy pair, an off-duty Guardia Civil sergeant and the son of a local dive centre owner, failed to surface with the rest of their group after a recreational dive at Pal Mar near Punta Rasca.

The search will continue from surface vessels.

The Cabildo has announced that from April 10th to 13th Tenerife will host one of the most important events of the year. The bringing together of over 1,000 Spanish travel agents in a move to boost tourism.

The aim is to show agents and tour operators the variety of tourist amenities in the north and south of Tenerife, as well as in the metropolitan area.

The programme ‘Ven a Tenerife 2008′, (Come to Tenerife 2008,) has a three-fold objective. First, to reward all those travel agents who recommend Tenerife to their clients as part of their daily work. Next to show travel agents some of the novelties that Tenerife has to offer in accommodation and leisure. And lastly, to establish a relationship of trust and loyalty with tour operators and agencies for future promotions.

During their stay the guests will be able to participate in several activities, including trips to Mount Teide, whale watching, wine-tasting and golf, plus free time to discover the island’s delights for themselves.
