WHAT ARE THE BEST DIVING SITES IN GRAN CANARIA TO EXPLORE?

All of our diving sites have something special to offer but one dive site we would highly recommend is Tufia. With beautiful swim-throughs, easy entry points and dramatic rock formations. We are experiencing great success here, spotting Angel Sharks, different species of Rays, and Seahorses to name just a few! Also, Tufia, being more sheltered than our other dive sites often results in great visibility.

Another dive site that we recommend is El Cabron. Voted one of Europe’s top ten dive sites, the dive site El Cabron is an obligatory stop for all divers travelling to Gran Canaria. One of only three marine reserves in the Canary Islands it is home to a rich diversity of marine life including four hundred varieties of Flora and Fauna. Because of its marine reserve status, boat traffic nor commercial fishing is allowed in the area, allowing marine life to thrive.

The Arco Chico, Los Roncadores and Punta de la Sal are three of the ten dive routes available to dive at El Cabron, with each different route catering to varying certification levels. Every dive offers something different from caverns, swim-throughs, arches, and caves!

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF QUALIFIED DIVES?

The price includes the following:

  • Hotel transfers from the South of Gran Canaria including the towns of Puerto Rico, Mogan, Playa del Ingles, Maspalomas, Bahia Feliz, Arguineguin, San Agustin and many more!
  • Also included in the price is full rental equipment from the leading manufacturer CRESSI and a fully qualified PADI instructor guide!
  • Insurance is not included in the price but can be purchased for an additional €7 per day.
